    Summary

    Riz was small and carried business cards. He wore suits to school and tugged around a briefcase engraved with the initials of a nickname that had been given to him by someone who’d just thrown him in a trashcan. But for all that, he knew his friends and he knew that Kristen’s need to get higher, to see the world from above the rest of them, was most effective when there was someone to tug her back down again when she was finished.

    “Whenever you die, it feels like there’s something in the universe that breaks,” he said, just loud enough for her to hear. Her grip on his shoulder tightened ever so slightly. “Like there was something important that exploded a few hundred years too soon.”

    Summary

    “Try not to die on the first day of school, Riz”, she said and there was sincerity in her voice.

    As sad as it sounded, however, mean she was, Aelwyn Abernant was the closest thing he had for a friend the last few years. They were just two teenagers, not so subtly manipulated by forces beyond their control. It helped to be honest and open with someone, even if that someone was a stuck up, rich, high elf.

    Riz would have still killed her if Kalina ordered him to, but he’d like to think that he’d hesitate a bit.
    ~
    or, a freshman year's retelling, where Riz is balancing being Kalina's spy, working towards bringing an evil dragon back to power and being tasked protecting a bunch of idiots who can't jump over tables. Somehow, the power of friendship is involved?

    Summary

    It's 1920 and Adaine Abernant and Fabian Aramais Seacaster have experienced success in running their speakeasy, the Bad Kids. Popular musical duo Figueroth Faeth and Gorgug Thistlespring perform there almost every night and the bartender, Kristen Applebees serves drinks so good they say they restore your HP. A favorite costumer takes the form of goblin PI, Riz Gukgak.

    One night, Riz comes with a new case that seems to be linked with the speakeasy's supply chain problem. As more information is unearthed, the case grows in size and soon the gang realizes this might be a fight for the whole city, not just the speakeasy.

    Summary

    Riz doesn’t quite understand why, but he feels like Fabian has been around more since they all survived the absurdity of sophomore year. (In which Riz cannot figure out what the “it” everyone refers to is, and why he’s thinking so much about his queer friends.)

    Summary

    Riz Gukgak was many things: a licensed detective, tattooed, a rogue, and hopelessly in love with his best friend. But one thing Riz was not was a sorcerer, wizard, cleric, or any flavor of magic user. At least, that was what he thought...

    As Riz struggles with controlling his magic, and Fabian pines from afar, will the bad kids get their shit together in time to stop the latest threat?

    Summary

    It was a little unmooring to see all the small differences his friends were always gaining, changing where he couldn’t notice until it was too late. Becoming new people all alone in the dark. And him, always playing catch-up.

    It was a little scary to watch all his friends become different people when Riz-- didn’t feel like he was moving. Fabian started dancing and Fig got a girlfriend and Adaine forgave her sister and everyone was-- different. More confident in their place in the world. More normal. And he’d never be, he didn’t think.

    Summary

    Realizing that you don’t care about sex when it’s all your friends care about is a tricky prospect. There’s a temptation to put yourself above them, to convince yourself that you’re simply too mature to be hung up on sex and dating, that you have better things to think about, like your schoolwork or your college applications or your part-time job as a licensed private investigator. That’s easy, because it lets you imagine that one day, when everyone else is as mature as you are, you’ll all care about sex a normal amount and the fact that you’ve never once imagined yourself engaging in it will be irrelevant, because everything will be as it should be.

     

     

    It’s not true, of course.

    Really, she thinks, she should be used to this by now. Dying. Being torn apart from the inside out.
