    Summary

    You don't have to be alone to be lonesome
    It's easy to forget
    The sadness comes crashing like a brick through the window
    And it's Christmas so no one can fix it

    ——————

    It’s twenty years into the future, and Adaine comes home for the Winter Solstice.

    Summary

    I never get
    Bored of looking at you
    Cause every time
    I see something new
    Like the scar on your spine
    You fell off the roof
    When you were nine
    You've lived a life
    Before me

    ————

    Fig and Ayda have a quiet moment together at the top of the Ferris wheel.

    Summary

    Fig falls in love with the drama of the stage, the character she's created. On stage she's not Fig Faeth, in a longtime feud with her parents, onstage she's pretty and popular and the stealer of hearts. It feels pretty good to be wanted and adored. (Fig Electra Heart AU)

    Summary

    Riz Gukgak, temporary hire for the Interdimensional Department of Celestial Guardians, is sent to be friends with a young, morally-wayward pirate's son. Theoretically, this should be a full-time thing, but he makes himself fade from the boy's life about two years after he arrives.

    Three years after that, two teachers (and one lunch lady) die on Fabian Aramais Seacaster's first day at school, and his guardian feels like if there's any time to step back into his work shoes, it's now.

    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

    Adaine Abernant was born into the family of the Fallinel ambassador to Solace. She has lived her whole life watching her parents manipulate the people around them in order to gain more power, and groom her older sister to carry on the legacy of the Abernant family. When she starts having strange visions, she decides to leave Fallinel and figure out what's going on. She signs aboard The Hangman- a simple cargo carrier. She quickly finds out that the crew, who call themselves the Bad Kids, are a part of a small organization headed by universally acclaimed Professor Arthur Aegfort. The organization's sole purpose is to end the reign of the dragon Kalvaxus. As the Bad Kids get closer and closer to the source of Kalvaxus' power, her visions start getting more and more intense. It becomes clear that the key to winning lies somewhere in her powers. Now it's a race against a ticking clock to see if she can figure out how her visions are connected to Kalvaxus before he figures out they're after him.

    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

    "She sits beside him, and she holds his hand. “I know you’re scared,” she says. He’s scared about his partner, who’s sick, and about money, and about all the many things he can’t control. “I know. It’s scary.” He’s shaking, still furious the way Adaine is so often, afraid and mad he’s afraid and scared he’ll never not be mad or afraid ever again. “This is all scary. I understand. I don’t have a spell for this, or a scripture, or a song, or a sermon.” She tightens her hand around his, and in her other hand she thinks, maybe, for half a heartbeat, she feels a cool, rough palm touch hers. “But I’m right here with you. We’re right here. You’re not alone.”

    Saint Kristen Applebees, with starlight in her heart

    Summary

    "He’s not the smartest, never will be. He’s not the quickest on the uptake or the best with people or the bravest or anything. But he can be, sometimes, the quietest, the one who doesn’t need to take up as much space. And his brain really seems to like it. He gets more used to being quiet, slow but sure. Reading, and tinkering, and letting himself just relax sometimes. It’s a good week."

    Gorgug Thistlespring, my darling boy.

    Summary

    "Several hours of spell casting and rune study are, in Adaine’s opinion, one of the top five ways to spend an afternoon. Spending them with Ayda, poring over weird old manuscripts written in pirate jargon, quietly talking about work and very little about anything else? That’s just icing on the cake. “Ooh, cake!” She pulls small packages of baked goods from her jacket and hands them to Ayda, watches Gaf and Boggy gambol and play. It is lovely. She is, in this moment, at peace."

    Adaine Abernant, finding moments to hold and moments to let go.

    Summary

    All it took was one U-turn and Fig's checklist for her teenage year's came crashing to a halt. Stepping into a car makes her skin crawl; getting behind the wheel makes her so nauseous she nearly passes out. And that's not even considering what having a passenger does to her.
    Fig cannot have passengers in her car. Not her weird driving instructor. Not her friends. Not even her parents--especially Gilear.
    Turns out crashing a car and killing several tieflings is enough to leave even a little devil feeling nervous.

    Summary

    [Everything's growing in our garden
    You don't have to know that it's haunted
    The doctor put her hands over my liver
    She told me my resentment's getting smaller
    No, I'm not afraid of hard work
    I get everything I want.]
    ーgarden song by phoebe bridgers

    The summer melts the icy walls Aelwyn built around herself, and Sam shapes them into something new and beautiful.

    Summary

    He didn’t really know how to pray. He had done it less than a handful of times, all from either the immediate weeks after his dad died or from those first few weeks of freshman year where Kristen was still all about prayer. Those times never quite felt genuine anyway, they were the cries of a young boy and the attempts to please someone he hoped would be his friend.

    Summary

    Aelwyn, after the nightmare king's forest, has her work cut out for her when it comes to making friends or… being someone that people don’t actively hate. It’s a work in progress but she likes to think that she’s getting the hang of it.

    (Drabbles of Aelwyn in the little moments, the ones that other people don’t remember, but moments that she holds close to her heart.)

    Summary

    Aelwyn Abernant is not okay.
    Most people wouldn't be after everything she's gone through- years of child abuse, months of torture, and being stuck under the thumb of an evil cat and her own parents. But she's getting through it the best she can. And if the best she can do is drink too much and stay out too late and try and numb the pain, then isn't that good enough?

    No, it isn't. After a night out filled with dancing and gorgeous DJs and private detectives named Riz Gukgak and actually feeling something again, Aelwyn knows that something is wrong. Luckily for her, school is starting back up, and she happens to be the ward of the best guidance counselor in Elmville, who would be happy to help Aelwyn get her diploma so she can go off to University.

    But for some reason, the Bad Kids can never seem to get through a year without a mystery to solve and a mission to complete. And for some reason, Aelwyn can never seem to get away from the Bad Kids.

    Aelwyn Abernant is not okay.
    But hopefully, someday, she will be.
