    Summary

    There are many myths and legends about those high up in the sky.
    Often, love can be found in those tales. The sun, bright and warm, falls in love with the moon, her pale beauty and quiet guidance for those lost in the night. Stars dance with each other, always just ensemble, never at the front. They provide the glittering canopy, a backdrop for the events unfolding in front of them, but the stars are never subjects of a romance.
    This story is a different one. This story tells a tale of night and day, the falling shadows and rising clouds, the winds and waters of the world. This story sings of a deity, a star, that fell in love with the sun, and the sun that followed it.

    Summary

    Apollo, one of the Twelve Olympians, God of light and music, son of Zeus, is caught between fate and possibility when he falls in love with Icarus, the son of a famous inventor banished to Crete. Apollo despises his life in Olympus, and yearns to experience the wonders of human vulnerability. But Apollo knows that his old friend Helios has not forgiven him for the tragedy and heartbreak he had once caused him, so Apollo seeks to keep his love for Icarus hidden in fear that Helios might take his revenge. Icarus, however, does not care for the games of the gods. He doesn't even know what Apollo truly is and what dangers await him if he were to find out.

    Summary

    "Frowning, Techno stirred his tea. "Yeah. His times up and gone. 10-12, that the cutoff. I think its about time we gave up hope."

    "Gave up hope?" Wilbur asked, his heart sinking.

    "That he's a hybrid," Techno responded bluntly, taking a sip of his tea. "We've waited over two years. It would of shown by now."

    Wilbur found himself wanting to change the subject. He suddenly felt very negative regarding what Tommy hadn't gained from Phil genetically. Like he was missing a part. He wasn't missing a part, Tommy was perfect the way he was. Even... even if he wasn't like the rest of them."

    Or in which Wilbur and Techno tell Tommy he's not a hybrid, until he sprouts wings and everyone gets confused.

    Summary

    He can’t look at him and see him the way he does others, can’t pull his fake psychic act and pluck the thoughts from Dr. Lecter’s head as easily as opening a book. He knows he’s Lithuanian, an ex-surgeon-current-psychiatrist, can cook, is stronger than he shows himself to be, has some sort of relationship with twitchy little Agent Graham over there (the nature of which he couldn’t even begin to speculate on), and that the only reason Jane knows any of those things in the first place is because Lecter lets him.

    Summary

    An orphan girl. Forced to live and work with people who see her as less than human. Forced to sell her human dignity to get by. A pair of storm-filled eyes in a sea of overcast pupils. A bowed head in an ocean of fearful worshippers. The ones who were in practice the gods of this world didn't see her. They drowned themselves in excesses as all flawed gods do. They stepped over the heads of mortals, humans and demigods alike, to get what they wanted. Our protagonist is losing hope. Then she meets a woman with blood smeared all over her mouth and running down her chin.

    Summary

    Boba’s wings are his buir’s, once he is grown enough to bear them. Strong and solid and heavy against his back, pressed tight against his shoulder blades with straps of leather and buckles of durasteel.

    They terrify him.

    They were the death of his buir, wax melted by an order of blazing, burning suns, and now they are his to trust in.

    But how can he trust in something that betrayed his blood so wholly? How can he look at singed, treacherous wings and think yes, you did not save my buir, but you will save me? It’s a series of impossible questions and impossible answers.

    OR

    Boba Fett and his wax wings through suns, endless seas, the belly of the beast, and after.
