    Summary

    The ice breaking craziness was the result of what was described as a routine, recurring, annual phenomenon. We never saw it happen again though. Funny timing, that, given that the air date of Spring Break was almost exactly a year before the air date of It Happened In Juneau, and two before A Kaddish for Uncle Manny, and three before I Feel the Earth Move, all of which are just before long term changes with them. I'm also always looking for a way to explain Maggie's weird season 4 character reset - and Joel's to a lesser extent. And their hot and cold through season 5.

    Summary

    All the nights Joel wanted her to stay and that time she finally did. Set in late season 4 and early season 5. Mostly canon compliant. If you read a lot into what aired (and assume, like I do, they kept things up after Ill Wind), it all kind of works - until the end. ;) Each chapter's next-nearest episode is noted at the start.

    Summary

    A letter arrives for Joel. Post 'The Quest.' As always this picks and chooses aired elements, with me disregarding things I don't like. This assumes nothing happened after The Quest. And that it was mostly Maggie's dream, although Joel moved back to New York. Briefly...

    Summary

    This diverges from (or corrects, depending on your perspective) canon, post The Quest. This picks up a few days after Maggie gets Joel's postcard. In my mind, Joel's time "up river" was a few weeks at most. Where anything that aired between Up River and The Quest conflicts, this supersedes that. This is all just a fancy way of saying "I don't like how things ended with Joel or Joel and Maggie, and I really didn't like what happened with Maggie and Chris, so I ignore what I don't like and my canon may be different than what those with less selective memory recall." Also, this is my first "published" work of any kind for any fandom, so if you hate it, go easy on me. :)

    Summary

    It's still light out, but the sun is going down, and it won't be back for another twenty hours. Holling at the Brick wants to remind everyone about the complimentary chocolate fountain, courtesy of Maurice and the folks at Strexcorp, and the hats are a-plenty over at Ruthanne's store. All in all, the end or beginning to another day. I'm Chris-In–The-Morning, and welcome… to Cicely.
