    Summary

    "What year is it?"

    His tongue is dry and Jonah still feels paralyzed. There is a sudden pressure at his throat, a ribbon wrapped around his muscles that tugs upward, forcing his lips to move in a way that he knows is supernatural.

    “May 29th, 1803,” he gasps and clutches at his neck to fight the sensation even as it goes slack and begins to fade.

    Between death and a do-over, Jon would have tentatively chosen ‘do-over’. Of course, even when he and Martin get another chance, things become complicated and now they are faced with how to save this new reality while living with their former arch nemesis pre-avatarhood and whilst adjusting to the new time period. Chaos, as expected, ensues.

    Summary

    “I am the Master of this Mill. You can be my apprentice, if you’d like. I need one. You want to, don’t you?”
    “I want to."
    “And what do you wish to learn from me? The craft of milling, or also the other craft?”

    Jon, a 14 year old orphan, joins the Mill of Kosel's Quarry and thinks he has finally found a place of safety. But soon, he starts to question what is happening around him. What is their true purpose at the mill? Why is Sasha convinced that the Master killed the boy she loved? And who is that young man with the golden voice and copper curls in the village nearby?

    Summary

    They tell, as far as he may know, the tale of four men—an extravagant man, a gentle and unknowing youth, a beautiful scholar, many eyed and wound in obsession, and a man propelled by his truth and loving, of his determination to right the wrongs, to survive the ordeal presented. It is a legendary tale, one of myth and legend, the king, the peasant, the priest, the hero.

    It is a tale of knowledge, of the devouring of such, the devotion of oneself to an abstract concept made real, the fascination with the terrible and uneasy, the dragging of this concept through the cracks in the world’s bounds. There is a scene, depicted down by scotch fir, by scarlet poppy, by the glory flower and the schinus, of the king upon his throne of eyes, high within his tower, of the supplicant at his feet, and the hero stood opposed, a letter clutched within his hand, for it be his only shield.

    Summary

    It was not because of Prince Martin that Jon signed the contract. Jon could admit to himself that regardless of their childhood friendship he barely knew the man now. He was pining after a stranger whose life he saved, and he was not such a hopeless romantic that he would truly throw over everything for a Prince.

    Jon wasn’t certain that he loved Prince Martin, but he was certain that he loved the humans. The study of them absorbed him wholly. If all he got out of this contract was a lifetime of mutely watching the humans, it would be more than a fair trade. That there was the possibility of True Love with a handsome prince thrown into the bargain was… what was the human term? Icing on the muffin? No, that didn’t sound right. What even was a muffin?

    He shook off the thoughts, eyed the eight-limbed woman floating in the grotto, holding the contract. Could he really do this?

    “Go on,” Annabelle said. “Your future awaits.”

    Thinking of sunlight and sand, of poetry and muffins and the thousand things he was sure to learn on the first day, Jon took the quill and reached out and signed his name.

    Annabelle’s smile was broad, white teeth flashing brightly. “A merman no more. You won’t regret this.”

    Summary

    Jonathan could not say that he had had any idea of what was waiting for him when Jonah begged him to pay Albrecht a visit and give him what help he was capable of. It was all much, much more than he had imagined, and so much more than he had feared.

    Summary

    “He just showed up the other day for the first time in, so far as I can tell, ever, and no one thinks it’s even a little bit weird? Something’s not right.”

    Martin paused for a moment.

    Jon was, of course, hoping in vain that his pointing it out would bring some sudden revelation, and then the two would set out with some half-brained scheme to Expose Michael For What He Really Was. They would go and tell Tim, who would tell Sasha, and it would be rather like old times: the four of them charging recklessly into something bigger than they understood, and coming away with some wild memory of their recent escapade, or something new and terrible and grand to ponder, or the truth, or whatever it was they went looking for.

    But Martin just said, “Jon, are you sure you’re feeling alright?” and Jon sighed.

    Summary

    You see, dear reader, all the best stories are laced with magic.
    When Jon was a child they heard stories of Wordsmiths, those brave and brilliant creatures who wove their words into witchcraft. True magic was hard to come by, true storytelling harder still, and their gifts were treasured and praised in the sunshine-colored memory of Jon’s youth. Jon has long known the tales of the Wordsmiths speaking reality to the shape of their throats, tuning the world to the key of their songs.
    And then King Magnus took the throne.
    The King coveted the Wordsmiths’ magic. Coveted the power they wielded. It was not long before Jon was summoned to the King’s court and found themself proffering up their fear like a feast for the King’s ravenous stare.
    And so we arrive here.

    Summary

    Dr. Fanshawe is without a doubt an expert in his field, which is medicine and surgery. It is decidedly not the supernatural, nor the mysterious coffins that spawn from it. Good thing his pal Jonah is here.

    Alternatively: Jonathan finds The Coffin whilst gravedigging with his bestie/probable ex/arch nemesis Jonah Magnus. It goes as well as you’d expect.

    Summary

    The wedding had not been expected. “Bring a suit,” he had said, “We’ll meet at the hotel before heading to the courthouse,” he had said.
    What an asshole.
    And now, here he was, freshly wedded and about to be bedded? Not if he could help it.

    Summary

    Today, Martin is marrying Jon.

    Standing there, his dark skin glowing in the evening light outside, is Jon in the most beautiful blue gown Martin has ever seen with black sparkling vines making their way down the bodice, a matching cape resting on his shoulders and a daffodil bouquet clutched in his hands. His long dark hair is pulled back from his face, and the smile on his face causes Martin's breath to catch in his throat. The swell of the song beats in time with Martin's heart.
