    Summary

    More than anything else, David wants to believe he's not sick because that means he isn't crazy. It means he can fall in love and live happily ever after. But if he surrenders to that hope and he's wrong, then there's no coming back.

    The Shadow King is victorious, but the battle for David Haller’s soul has only begun. David fails to escape Division 3's intervention and is forced into therapy. With his relationships ruined, his mind split, and his past a lie, death seems like the only choice left. But Farouk is pulling the strings to keep him alive. As David's friends and family work desperately to save him, David must reclaim his past and present to avoid losing his future to the monster who destroyed him.

    Summary

    I just wanted an excuse to talk about them, okay?

    So I blabbered out everything I could think of.

    It's like a show bible, but for my own fanfic. Or your fanfic too, perhaps. This is canon, assumed canon, headcanon with evidence, wild theories, and occasional random opinions. It's the Unified Theory of Loudermilks. Everything you've ever wanted to know. Or, everything I've ever wanted to know, at least.

    Agree? Disagree? Just want to talk about them, too? Leave a comment!

    Summary

    When I started writing this collection of Oliver-and-Cary-as-childhood-friends AU stories, I thought “How does Melanie fit in?” But I’d already started writing “A Strictly Scholarly Collaboration” and I couldn’t see THAT happening any other way. The question really became, “How would CARY fit into THAT story, if he and Oliver were already friends?” And so, as I wrote both sets of stories, I kept writing these bonus scenes— the scenes that would tie the origin-story-of-the-future-Mr.-and-Mrs.-Bird and the Childhood Friends AU together.

    Although coinciding with Oliver and Melanie’s romance, these scenes are more about the burgeoning friendship of they-who-shall-become Summerland-Generation-One: what happens when Oliver has a sensible friend to talk through his new experiences (and be a good wingman), and when Cary’s around to experience Oliver’s wild pre-Melanie years in the first place; how Melanie gets the wrong end of the stick about Cary, repeatedly (it’s a many-ended stick); and Kerry, well, is Kerry! (I will continue to regret that Oliver and Kerry never got to actually interact on the show. What a waste of great character chemistry!)

    In Which I retell Chapters 6-8 from the POV of my babies, the Loudermilk Twins. "A lot of Kerry’s memories were fuzzy, but she clung to the sound of Mama’s voice in her head, ran it on a loop over and over: no matter what happens, you’ll always have each other. So where was he now when she most needed him?"

    Summary

    Liza knew that there were other people—people like her—somewhere out there. She knew, because they came to her.
    Like dandelion seeds floating in the wind.
    Like a skittish fawn approaching an outstretched hand.
    Like ghosts misplaced from their graves.
    They would come to her—all manner of people. And her Spaceman was one of them.

    It wasn’t until she was quite a bit older that Liza realized that “Spaceman” wasn’t quite the correct term for her fly-by-night, imaginary best friend. “Diver man” or “Jules Verne enthusiast” would have been more appropriate. But regardless, he’d first came to her when she was six years old and in the direct middle point of her space phase: So Spaceman he had forever remained.

    ------------------------------------------

    Liza's Spaceman was the singular constant in her life, even when she grew up from the little girl obsessed with space—far too old to talk to people no one else could see. Yet, he was real to her because of this.

    But what she honestly wasn't expecting was that he was real to other people, too.
