    Summary

    Ethan has been coughing a lot lately. He chalks it up to the cigarettes, then to karma, but when he finally spots blood, he knows it's over. After seeking comfort in Miss Holloway's diner, Ethan finds time missing, not that he's surprised. It's happened before. What is new, though, is the feeling of eyes on him and suddenly being unable to die.

    In a twist of fate, Ethan is driven away from Hatchetfield and towards California by himself. But when he comes back, things have changed. Lex is in jail and Hannah is in desperate need of a friend. Pizza Pete's is a corporation and either it or CCRP seem to own almost every building on the island. The only places left untouched are Miss Retro's and his dad's auto-shop.

    To make matters worse worse, no one seems to recognize Ethan or even remember him. In his desperate attempt to help, will he fix Hatchetfield? Or destroy it?

    Summary

    It is strange, perhaps, to have a goddess sing tales of mortals, it's supposed to be the other way around. But Webby is not a proper goddess, she never has been, and she is determined to tell this story.

    The story of Miss Holloway, haunted (quite literally) by the shadows of her past. Of how she falls in love with a social worker with soft eyes and a kind heart and thanks to him endeavors to find a spark of music lost a long time ago. The story of how Bliklotep, the Baron of Stolen dreams endeavors to tear them, and Hatchetfield apart. And of how they lose each other, just like Orpheus and Eurydice did before them.

    It is not a happy song, but she sings it nevertheless.

    And maybe, just maybe, there's a galaxy out there where things do turn out. Until then, Webby will sing.

     Or, in short, a Holloduke Orpheus and Eurydice AU.

     

     

    Written for Hatchetfield Big Bang 2022!

    Summary

    It was supposed to be better than this. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. They’d had a plan, damn it, an actual, written-down, worked-out plan. It was simple, really. Get some cash, go to Cali, and never look back. Three steps, no frills, no bullshit, no nothing. But of course, it didn’t work out. Because four months ago, Ethan Green disappeared. Four months ago, Hannah made a new imaginary friend. Four months ago, Lex Foster’s life shattered into a million fucking pieces, and now, in spite of everything, she’s trying to fix it. But with a monster on the prowl in the woods, Hannah insisting that she needs to meet her newest friend, and dreams of her missing boyfriend haunting her every night, she’s being made aware of one painful truth. Life’s a bitch.

    Summary

    It’s a cold spring in 1897, just before the century turns, and the reclusive Professor Henry Hidgens has sent out coveted invitations to the Hatchetfield Symposium. This is no mere academic conference, however- it’s a party, a meeting of minds, one of the most secretive social events of the decade! Among those lucky few invited is one Paul Matthews, a milquetoast reporter for the Hatchetfield Post with nothing whatsoever to recommend him for the honor. It must be a mistake, the invitation meant for someone else- it could never actually be for Paul! But Paul’s editor insists he must attend, and he arrives to a collection of eclectic personalities and notable names. At first confused, then frightened, over the week of his stay Paul begins to recognize a much more sinister force than a postal mistake is at work on the Hidgens Estate, and that these violent delights may, indeed, have their promised violent ends.
    ______
    or, Paul Matthews collects the horror stories of his fellow guests and finds, too late, that he's living one of his own.

    Summary

    Paul sighed as he got out of the car. He had finally gotten the courage to volunteer at the local nursing home all by himself, and he was absolutely determined to not fuck it up.

    It was gonna be simple- just go in, spend some time with some lonely old people, and leave when you were done. You got this, Paul.

    Summary

    “Maybe we should pull over,” Duke suggests, squinting through the windshield from where he sits in the passenger’s seat.

    Miss Holiday sighs, frustrated. She turns on the windshield wipers, but the rain comes down faster than it can be steadily wiped away. “Alright. Fine. You’re right. We can wait it out.”

    ———

    miss holiday had a road trip she needed to take, and duke came along. it starts raining and gets hard to see, though, so they wait it out.

    (can be viewed as post-“not-so-subtle reminders”, my other holloduke oneshot, but you absolutely don’t need to read that one to understand this one)

    Summary

    Jane looked to the Peanuts clock on Tim’s bedside table. Who on earth would be knocking on the front door at 2am? She wondered, slipping out of Tim’s room. When she pried open the door, it was to see a couple of police officers and a shaggy-haired man stood in front of the door. She felt her breath shorten, a wave of familiarity washing over her. She’d been here before.

    ---

    In which Jane learns of the consequences of her actions.

    Summary

    “I just don’t know how you do it, Miss Holiday. I haven’t had hotcakes like these for as long as I can remember!” Duke commends the Hatchetfield High counselor.

    “I’ll bet you haven’t,” she says after a moment, a twinge of sadness weighing down her words.

    ———

    Duke always gets so close, but he never gets it. This happens every time, no matter what, yet Miss Holiday keeps on trying, maybe a little too obviously.
