    Summary

    The person Barry's looking for emerges. The person has raven black hair and warm tan skin, and his blue eyes are covered by triangle-shaped sunglasses. 

    Dick Grayson.

    Dick Grayson’s eyes dart, almost as if they were judging the place. He apparently approves, walking towards the exit. 

    Despite his cheery demeanor, a weight settles in Barry’s stomach.

    The story begins.

    Summary

    Eddie wakes up in greywater and he wonders which disease will kill him.

    Well, that’s not wholly true. Eddie wakes up in greywater and thinks, in this order:

    Shit.

    What happened?

    Where’s Richie?

    Neck deep in sewage, it’s only then he wonders:

    How many cases of cholera occur domestically every year? Six? Seven? What are the chances I’m one of them?

    Summary

    The man could tell a story. That much was a fact. Yet he knew, had been there seen with his own eyes when they pulled Hermione Granger from the woods. She couldn't have possibly survived. Could she?

    Summary

    Roman began to sing.

    There were no words, but the notes were familiar somehow, like a rough memory, pieces missing and wrong, but familiar. The air around them warmed, and the firelight strengthened. Roman’s voice never once faltered, swooping between notes yet always precise and accurate, there was no music beyond the gentle strums of his guitar. Yet it felt like there was. Not the music of symphonies, or the music of the bands that sometimes played within the building, but Patton’s music. The music of blooming roses and the music of kind breezes and kind suns. The music of a rushing river, and the music of fresh berries as they burst in your mouth. It is a subtle music. It is summer.

    Summary

    Sylvain has a sinking feeling that he won’t be able to last that long. Mercedes’s medical tent is quite a ways from their home, even if she lives relatively nearby. Sylvain’s body feels like a furnace yet he can’t stop trembling. His chest feels like he’s being constricted by that same damned snake that bit him. His head is spinning, and his stomach spins along with it. He just wants to shut his eyes and rest, but he refuses to rest until he tells Felix that he loves him.

    Just as Felix starts to move, Sylvain gathers up all his strength and lunges at Felix’s leg, hugging onto him and effectively keeping him in place.

    “Sylvain, let go! I have to go find Mercedes right now!”

    “Felix,” Sylvain slurs. Even though he hates how colors blur together and how shapes lose their distinct shapes, he forces himself to keep his eyes open, to will the tears away from his eyes, to remain calm. “Felix, I’m sorry.”

    “Stop apologizing and let me find Mercedes!” Felix tries to pull his leg from Sylvain’s grip. Felix gasps out a sob. “Please, Sylvain.”

    Summary

    Aziraphale and Crowley have grown comfortable in their life together after the failed Armageddon and their surprisingly successful switcheroo.

    Summary

    The promise feels simultaneously like some sacred quest and something too hollow. Hermann doesn’t even have a concept of what home could mean to Newt in the current context. He’s certainly not sure if it’s going to be overwhelmingly difficult to achieve. Part of him just wants to get to the hurdle of getting Newt back, they can work on the rest together. They can struggle when it’s the two of them together. They always made more sense as a pair than on their own.

    in which neither faith or love alone can save a man

    Summary

    He could hear the old poets whispering in his ears. He knew their stories well, thanks to his mother, who had fallen in love with the sun. She had told him of Bellerophon and Jason and Heracles—all heroes, all without happy endings. Arrogant, trusting, angry. Their downfalls had been buried in their flaws, inevitable.

     

    The old poets were fools.

    Summary

    She stops, nailing Julia with an iron stare, a High King stare. “This is fucked up, you know that, right? This is fucked up, and it is actively fucking us up, because Quentin is dead and gone and the longer we spend trying to bring him back and failing, the harder it gets to actually deal with it.”

    Julia takes a breath. Counts - 1, 2, 3; lets it out. “I’m not giving up yet.”

    Summary

    They say Hadestown is a place closer to Hell than Heaven, but not quite either. It steals your name, your heart, and the breath from your lungs. It's hard to get to, harder to leave, and if Newt's ever going to escape, it'll take everything he has plus a demonic miracle to do so, and that's just to start.

    Summary

    In 1347, a ship arrives bearing books and news from the east. Aziraphale, a Cistercian monk of Tintern Abbey, travels to collect his books. There he meets a lazy-hipped, red-haired sailor and has the strangest feeling that he knows Crowley, that they have met once. He just cannot remember at all.

    Or, all love stories are ghost stories. And to tell a ghost story, something must have happened before.

    Summary

    Out beyond right, out beyond wrong, there is a place. I will meet you there.
     
    Maybe the barren-ness of Tatooine was fitting. She herself had been devoid of life once. Sometimes her body felt colonized by it like this planet had been.
