    Summary

    The first time he had called out that there was a wolf had been because he was truly afraid.
    After that it was because he was bored.
    Then it was because he was lonely.

    That the wolf might also be bored and lonely never entered his mind.

    Summary

    Nika's so bored, being the newest member of the gang. Turns out bored isn't the worst thing he could be.

    Nika watches the Wolf approach, wishing the barricades were better defense, wishing he were important enough to have one of the limited supply of guns. The guy looks like something out of a movie from before the flood years, mostly human in shape but more broad-shouldered than people ever get anymore, and with the pricked ears and bestial snout of a wolf instead of the face of a man. He moves with an easy, unsettling grace, heading straight toward the barricade guard station—the cab of what used to be some kind of construction machine—and offering Nika a casual wave.

    "Hey, bro," he says, as if their gangs aren't rivals for territory, as if they haven't had skirmishes twice in the month since Nika got in.

    "The others are on their way," Nika says immediately. They probably are. Maybe. Eventually.

    They still call him a boy. He resents that about the people of his natal village. Yes, he resents that above all things.

    Summary

    As you should expect, The Boy Who Cried Wolf never cries wolf again, not once. He never, in fact, bothers to sound the alarm when the wolf is nearby at all—and the wolf comes around a lot. I think you understand the reason for that.

    Summary

    Every story has morals. It's been pounded into our heads and done over and over. But what if morals didn't exist? We'd be left with an empty void of these tales. Lines that don't cross, words leading to nowhere, a beginning without an end. Imagine, through these waves of words that mean nothing, there's a moral out there? Death. Death is what makes a grim story, to cause the reader to wail. The Villain dies along with those who were awful to our Hero. That’s our happy ending, correct? Our Hero has no more agony, no more pain. But, what if our hero was abused? Goodbye home and family. They're on the streets now. No one can simply kill the streets. Moral tries to stick their nose into others’ affairs and causes more pain. In this world, Moral is awry in some lives, and vacant in others. In the life of foul Morals, the only way to tie them back together is to fix it. But Moral isn't a king. You can't go to it, slap it across the face and tell it to behave. It's not a car, a faulty one that can be fixed by a clever mechanic. It's only an idea. How do you fix something you can't see? Well, Jack doesn't know or care. He only wants everything to go fine, to live in a world his grandpa admires and misses, a world where all is well.
