    Summary

    “How’d you end up in the theatre department?” Jack asks, gesturing toward the two stools in the booth as he steps backward to take a seat in one. Tentative, Sammy follows suit. It’s less intimidating, both of them sitting in front of a rather large soundboard. Gives Sammy something else to look at. “Mary just told me she found me an assistant who was doing homework at rehearsal.”

    “My best friend’s playing Algernon,” Sammy says, and leans over the board to the small window separating the sound booth from the black box. He can just make out Ben in one of the corners, jumping up and down. Probably a warm-up, since Emily and Reagan are doing it next to him, but that’s also just Ben’s energy. “I go into anaphylactic shock when he’s more than two feet from me.”

    Sammy turns to see Jack biting down on a smile. Christ, he’s cute. His eyes are green, and Sammy hates that especially about him.

    [A ridiculous, pining college theatre au.]

    Summary

    “It’s been three weeks, Benny. You’ve been gone three weeks. We found you next to the riverbank, by the first campsite. Only a twenty minute hike from the entrance. Half frozen to death – the doctors say it’s just that jacket that kept you from….but it’s summer – how could you be frozen? And how did you have enough food? I thought it would have been starvation, or dehydration.”

    “Someone saved me,” Ben tells his mom with all the certainty he can. “There was a monster, and someone saved me.”

    Summary

    “See, here’s the thing,” Ben turns to Ron with his biggest smile. “That guy from the radio station – I know I was making fun earlier, but Sammy really likes him, and I don’t think he’s gonna do anything about it.”

    “You know, Benny, If I’m rememberin’ right, you’ve been banned from setting him up,” Ron swats Ben’s head with a dishcloth. “Under pain of death, I think were Sammy’s exact words. Ever since the Football Incident.”

    “Don’t talk about that while he’s in earshot or he’ll never shut up about it,” Ben casts a surreptitious glance at the doorway, but no one comes. Presumably Sammy is properly distracted by playing Trivial Pursuit with the kids. “He won’t kill me. Sammy talks big but he’s all melty on the inside.”

    Summary

    Value: the relative lightness or darkness of a color. It is an important tool in the way that it defines form and creates spatial illusions.

    Mary hears about Sammy before she meets him. It happens when Tim doesn’t come home that night.

    She wonders where he is and what they’re doing to him. She wonders if Tim will be the only one, or if someone else will be taken next. She wonders if they’ll be able to see it coming, or if that will make any difference. It hadn’t for Tim.

    She wonders if they’re all just helpless.

    [ AU where you see in black and white until you meet your Soulmate and then you see in full color. Or, at least you should. ]

    Summary

    Ben Arnold's life hasn't changed much since the zombie apocalypse. That changes though when a man comes into town and needs help unraveling a conspiracy about what really happened two years ago when the zombies arrived.

    I'm bad a summaries, I just did a thought experiment one night while doing dishes of how King Falls would fare a zombie apocalypse and this is the result.

    The story doesn't have anything to do with Night Vale Present's Alice isn't Dead I just thought the title was cool and so I stole it.

    Summary

    "Who is Sammy Stevens?"

    He sees it, etched into the notebook paper so deeply it’s near damned imprinted itself on the covers, and he knows the answer without a pause for commercial.

    Summary

    Sammy and Ben make dangerous supply runs on a two-man transport vessel and have had their memories wiped so many times they're losing count. Then again, most people in their line of work have the same problem. Meeting Captain Emily Potter - potentially for the second time - might give them the opportunity to get out of the black market and its debilitating memory wipes for good, assuming they can survive the job she offers them.

    Summary

    “Sometimes… I wonder, if the shoe were on the other foot… if whatever it was that grabbed him had grabbed me instead, I wonder how far Jack would’ve went to save me. And I know that he would’ve brought me back. No matter where, or what had taken me.” - Sammy Stevens, Episode 68

    [ AU where Sammy is trapped in the Void instead of Jack, and Jack goes to King Falls to rescue him as well as host the show. Things are similar, but not quite the same. ]

    Summary

    Sammy figures he isn’t going to see Ben until the new year – Ben had hugged him briefly last night, told him merry Christmas, so Sammy isn’t counting on seeing a lot of Ben Arnold. He already misses Ben which isn’t healthy, not at all. He can’t care about someone again, it hurts too much, but Ben’s wormed his way into Sammy’s life and Sammy can’t exactly dispel him now. Ben’s a part of him whether he likes it or not.

    But Ben texts him two days after the show is done.

    Duuuuuuude I’m so bored wtf. Come to Rose’s with me tomorrow but at like, a normal time. I miss your sarcasm.

    Summary

    Sammy didn’t feel it at first, even as the crowd around Grisham gasped. Sammy’s Games were more than a decade ago. They’d long faded away, as horrible as that sounded. But there was a Games that haunted him even more, one that floored him fast and hard, and suddenly he found it difficult to breathe, something like tears blurring in his eyes though they felt too hot, too painful, more like acid than anything else.

    District Five had Victors to choose from. Death had stopped scaring Sammy a long time ago.

    What rattled him to his core was that District Twelve didn’t have Victors to choose from. District Twelve just had the two. Just had Ben Arnold. Ben Arnold and Emily Potter.

    That – that was worse than death. Ben Arnold and Emily Potter back in the Games, after everything they’d been through, and Sammy still alive on the other side. There was nothing worse than that.

    Summary

    Sammy squinted at them. “You aren’t pulling my leg here, right? This isn’t a joke? ‘Ha ha, we pranked the new guy into thinking he walked into a wormhole?’”

    “Not into a wormhole, dude. Beside one. Uh, wormhole-adjacent." Ben patted his shoulder sympathetically. "This all probably seems a bit overwhelming, but don’t worry. You’ll eventually get used to it all.”

    “There’s more?” Sammy demanded, looking vaguely scandalized.

    Ben grinned, and spread out his arms. “Welcome to King Falls Laboratories,” he said with a flourish. “The foremost center for extradimensional research.”
