    Summary

    Arthur Underwood never locked Nathaniel in a room full of spirits. Without that scaring experience, Nathaniel's curiosity about djinn grows unhindered by fear. Unsatisfied with the lack of information he seeks out a more direct source. Bartimaeus, for his part, is not exactly prepared to be confronted with a child with too many questions and not enough books...again.

    Summary

    "Just so you know, I don't believe that John Mandrake is dead," Bartimaeus interrupts. A brief pause—very brief, because the djinni gets horribly bored if he doesn't hear himself speak for more than ten seconds—, and then, "But I do believe that you're doing your very best at beating him to death. Which I approve of in principle, of course. You know me - I'm very pro-beating wizards to death."

    Summary

    When Nathaniel dies, instead of being dismissed, Bartimaeus goes to the afterlife with him. When he sees someone he loves, he isn't as happy as you might think. Takes place after The Gate of Ptolemy.

    Summary

    Bartimaeus is an assassin and Nathaniel is his handler, but it's really more about them trying to get over their emotional constipation long enough to have more than three words of actual communication, and even then it's not really about that because this was just supposed to be an outline piece.

    Summary

    Welcome to Viteri's Art Supplies, a small independent art shop nestled comfortably in the middle of Silverfield Lane, right between the "Emerald Palace" bookshop and Mr Lou's animal emporium.

    This is a story about new places, alien and familiar at once, spending one's days off cozied up in the café next to the train station, talking portraits, five scales per hour, blueberry muffins so delicious that they will make you cry, and about living a life you never thought you would experience.

    This is a story about Simpkin.

    Summary

    His affections for Ptolemy ran deep and unfaltering. He would have died for the boy. Even now, with it being an option, he longed only to give all that he was, all that he would ever be, in the blind hope that was so foolishly human, that Ptolemy would live.

    Such wasn't meant to be.

    Summary

    The objective of Kitty's and Nathaniel's little brush with death was to bring back one soul from the green pastures. The issue, however, is that the spell might have worked just a little too well.

    Sequel to "Three's A Company." Tags will be added as I go along to avoid spoilers.

    Summary

    ...but four could be a bit of a crowd.

    Or: Nathaniel and Kitty are planning something. Bartimaeus has no idea what, but he's wholly convinced that it will end with a disaster. Whether he's correct or not depends on one's perspective.

    Summary

    "He wonders, vaguely, what might have changed if they’d lived; all three of them against the world. It doesn’t really bear thinking about, but then again, he’ll be dead in moments. Why not spend those dwelling on happier things?"

    --

    Stroud's ending was pure poetic justice but...this.

    Summary

    Then, something occurred to him; he moved away, "The shadow is not your true self."

    Ammet quirked his head to the side, something he did to express curiosity when he couldn't be bothered to manifest facial features. "It is not." He agreed, his gaze lingering on Khaba's lips as if he still waited for the kiss. "My true shape is not for mortal eyes to see."

    ... or is it?

    (A pre-RoS excuse to write K swooning over his husband's eldritch form, just because I can and because Stroud was too much of a coward to write it himself.)

    Summary

    Vala loves reading. She loves the escape it provided, and how the stories in between the pages have become her only home. When she's on one of her rare visits to a bookstore, Vala makes a discovery: Leonardo Cartwright, an awkward young explorer and fellow bookworm. As they continue to meet during their excursions across the galaxy, a friendship begins to blossom between the two. There's just one little issue - Vala still hasn't told him what she does for a living. And she's certainly not going to do it soon.

    Elsewhere in the galaxy, a Goa'uld is on the rise. Maahes, a son of Ra, had been presumed dead when he disappeared millennia. But after resurfacing several years ago, the Scarlet Lord is only just becoming a threat. The alliances he forges between the remaining Goa'uld have put the freedom won by their defeat. And Maahes wants to form an alliance with Qetesh.

    Which, seeing that only Qetesh's host Vala is alive, might pose some problems.

    Summary

    Edward and Alphonse are prepared to travel north to Briggs to catch up with Mei, but a problem quickly arises. Likely in response to the Elric brothers repeatedly discovering more information about Father's plans, Fuhrer King Bradley issues a groundbreaking law: any state alchemist going on a trip that's longer than three days must take another state alchemist with them. So Colonel Mustang assigns one of his subordinate officers to accompany the Elric brothers - Sebastian Kueper, the Glasswork Alchemist. But Sebastian travels with companions of his own, and it quickly becomes apparent that all three of them have secrets they hope will never see the light of day.
