    Summary

    Dean Gryne of The Daily Gryne dies at 50 of a heart attack, his wife having been a victim of a drive-by shooting less than a year prior, now in his Will leaving the company to his 19-year-old daughter. The only problem is that she doesn’t want it. She doesn’t know what she wants, but she knows what she’s been taught. It has nothing to do with bringing home the money and everything to do with being what her mother was: a mother who barely got to be a wife because her husband wasn’t around much. How is she supposed to take over as the head of his company when she doesn’t know the first thing about it or him? Pass it on to someone else, of course.

    Summary

    “What,” he says, his voice soft and high, “what the fuck is that?”

    The sharp change in his tone draws the attention of Marielena and Rebekah as well and he takes a faltering step backward as if frightened to be the object of all their gazes. James starts to say. “It’s a menorah—”

    “I know what the fuck it is!” John shouts. “What the fuck is it doing here? Someone’s going to see, take it down at once!”

    I have included trigger warnings in the tags; if I've missed any of those, either, please let me know. Different installments of this series will have different warnings, so please pay attention to the tags. ALSO ALSO: this chapter (and further chapters) contain language that, while considered common usage at the time, are now seen as pejoratives. Some of that language is called out in the text but other examples are not.

    Summary

    Edward got closer. He just couldn't believe how young she looked. For all he knew she could have been snapped away from Amestris just minutes after he had left her, never to return by her side. His brows knitted together from thinking about the painful memory. A gamut of 'what if's' suddenly invaded his mind and put weight upon his aching heart. Remorse was a cold bitch.

    Summary

    ABC invites you to the 60th anniversary special of the beloved family classic “The Sound of Music”. A tuneful, heartwarming story, based on the real life story of the Rogers Family singers, one of the best known concert groups of the era. Actually, it's the story of Antony Stark, an Italian monk whose best shot at escaping Reich controlled Austria is to become the tutor of the seven children of Captain Stefen Rogers. The hills are not alive with music, they are swarming with Nazis and Tony's not the only one keeping secrets or desperately trying to save what he loves. What he loves has gotten really REALY confused, but maybe he's not alone in that either.

    Summary

    It's 1868.

    Rey (Rachel) Huxley came to America to start over after the death of her father. It's not a month later when she reads an add in the paper of a man named Ben Solo in the Wyoming Territory looking for a wife. She didn't expect much to come of her letter of reply, he must have had dozens. In August, he sent her a telegram asking for her hand - now it's September, and she finds herself leaving the stagecoach in the small town of Green River.

    Ben Solo went West after the Civil War. The sole blacksmith in the town, possibly the county, he decided to find himself a wife before someone else arranged a marriage for him. The only person who answered his advertisement was a young woman in Boston named Rachel, who called herself Rey.

    Summary

    She's young, a bit on the rounder side with kinky brown hair that bobs around her face. She's in a white dress, sleeveless and hangs loosely off her tanned frame. Her brown lips pull up into a wide grin, green eyes light up and her caramel cheeks turn rosy. She looks positively excited to lay her eyes on him. Her eyes light up with excitement and she claps her hands together in giddy glee. Something seems off about her. Edward can't quite place his finger on it. She rests her chin on a balled up fist and smirks. She seems amused at the shock she caused.
    "You move quick for a dead man."
    -
    Edward awakens on a beach in 17th Century Cuba. A pirate, thrown overboard during a storm, he comes to and is joined by a strange woman. When she touches him he sees people after death, sees how the living will die, and the dead that remain trapped behind.

    That is, until he made eye contact with a pink-haired girl suspended in the air by trapeze wires.
