    Summary

    Necessities in hand, Fig returns. She passes Kristen her plastic cutlery and sets the maple syrup in between them. Behind her, Gilear retreats back to his bedroom, probably to nurse his yogurt in peace.

    Kristen looks at Fig in that goofy way she does before a joke. With a dramatic movement, she drizzles syrup over her waffles. “I baptize you in the name of the Sun, the Grain, and the Holy Growth. Acorn.”

    Fig narrows her eyes, mouth split in an expectant grin. “What?”

    Summary

    A ball of light, floating shoulder-height (for most of them) off the ground, expands and brightens, stretching to fill the room. It touches the ceiling, pops with a sharp crack, and a person tumbles out of it. There are streaks of red as they somersault, coming to rest within Riz’s reach.

    They prop themselves on an elbow but wince as they try to stand. One of their wings—they have wings—opens up, coming very close to Riz’s face. The wings are a brilliant orange against the dark of the house, and Riz can’t help touching the tip of one very gently.

    They whip around as soon as he does. There is fire in their eyes, and static growing in Riz’s stomach.

    “Oh, shit,” he says, and then he disappears.

    //

    or: after their harrowing adventures in the nightmare forest, the bad kids were looking forward to a quiet, relaxing summer. those dreams are dashed when riz disappears and the adventurers must recruit a mysterious stranger to help rescue him.

    Summary

    Kristen starts, and then stops. “Like, how am I supposed to know if I want to kiss girls in real life if no girls in real life will kiss me? I mean, Tracker did, but it was for like two seconds and I’m pretty sure I blacked out.”

    “I’d kiss you,” Fig says, offhand. “I’m honestly a little offended you didn’t ask.”

    Kristen squints at her in the dark. “Do you mean that?” she asks hesitantly. 

    “It wouldn’t have to count,” Fig says eagerly, wiggling closer. “Like, it’s just research for you about kissing girls and just practice for me so I can get super good at kissing.”

    Kristen pauses. “A zero-th kiss,” she says thoughtfully. “You’re really smart, you know that?”

    Summary

    It's not entirely clear how it happens. Someone cracks a joke in a staff meeting and Fabian responds but it gets interpreted wrong and now the entire summer camp staff thinks that he and Riz are dating. By the time either of them has realized what's happening it's spread to the kids and then it's all over, because the more they protest the guiltier they look.

    Summary

    A collection of scenes from the time-skip portion of "Cool Kids, Cold Case." How do we get from the Bloodrush field to the party? How are the Bad Kids dealing with their experiences taking down the Harvestmen in the months that follow the battle with Coach Daybreak? How are these friendships developing now that they're not almost dying every day? Who's still working on the case? How was Fig's oyster funeral? Is Kristen, like, okay?

    (because damn it you can't just gloss over months of character development and HAPPINESS and expect me to be satisfied with that!)
