    Summary

    -- To be given a bequeathed name is to be given face to the masses of the empire. Regardless of being acknowledged by the Imperial seat, such named individuals shadow themselves on the Imperial populations conscious. For good or ill this has remained true, past the death of Alternia and into the void. I cannot tell if it is our doom or our greatest challenge that xenos creatures now carry such names. --

    -- Annalist Tarsus of the IV Galopoli's Wrath

    Summary

    Your name is Lola Martineau, and these are the years between. Between the end of high school and the end of your master's program. Between lovers you'd hoped would take your devotion seriously, all of whom ultimately stopped short of true devotion. Between moments of hope and moments of despair. All you ever wanted were a few simple things - a profession you respected, and partners who were ready to love you unconditonally - but even that much is too much to hope for.

    Once you've disabused yourself of your old teenage and young adulthood hopes and dreams, you try to ride the wave of old disappointments, even as you want to surrender to the undertow. But your principles and beliefs keep you going and living, through college major changes, breakups, and existential crises. For years, you babysit a little boy you love more than life itself. You would walk through the fires of Hell for him with a smile on your face.

    More years pass.

    Then, comes the latest senior prom, chaperoned by, among others, a woman you've never stopped loving. Who never stopped loving you, in her own, fearful way. It will never be the way it was, but that does not mean it does not exist.

    Summary

    Your name is Dolores Martineau, Dolores when you're in trouble, Dolo to your friends and family, Lola to people you really like. In 1970, you're fourteen and a high school freshman, the first black girl in a newly co-ed science and math school in downtown Brooklyn. But that's not all you want to be. When you finish high school and college, you want to be a civil engineer. Even if most women don't study engineering.

    And your aunt's "friend", the highly affluent, highly homosexual Cecily Clark, a college student and an aspiring scientist in her own right, is determined to see you do exactly that. Even as her own issues threaten to swallow her alive.

    Summary

    The thing about dying is that your life is supposed to flash before your eyes before you expire. But you have been dying slowly for so many sweeps - Kankri is dead, Mituna is worse than dead, Meulin is gone, and you are a slave to a highblood. You spend every day catering to her every whim, and following her instructions to the letter, even the instructions you’d prefer not to contemplate. Sometimes, when you need a break, you retreat into a world of memory, a world where you were less weary and hopeless, and pretend that that this existence is dynamic, as opposed to a static set of recollections. Your name is Porrim Maryam, and you have been waiting to die for a long time.

    Summary

    This is the story of the Signless, says the man with a cue ball for a head, and he tells you a story that's been passed down through sweeps of trolls and even said to have originated from the mouth of the Disciple herself. But hundreds of sweeps and thousands of tellers tend to turn a story into myth; the events into grandiose and vaguely descriptive blurs, the characters into static figureheads instead of people. The tales whispered desperately around the fire at secret meetings of cultists just weeks after their leader's death are not quite the same as the tales the Summoner grew up hearing sweeps in the future, and those tales are not quite the same as the version that is widely told on Alternia today.

    This is the story of the Signless, he says. But he's only partially right.

    Summary

    *Pure Michigan Ad Voice with music in background* Spend the summer on the beautiful glistening shores of Lake Michigan, where the star shine at the night and the fun lasts all day. Imagine trips to Traverse City and Mackinaw Island while returning to a warm bed at the end of the day. Imagine the splash of the waves and the adventures on the sandy dunes. This is pure Michigan.

    *Normal voice* Dave is spending the summer with his boyfriend Karkat Vantas at his grandparent's cabin on Lake Michigan in the Leelanau peninsula. It's going to be a summer full of swimming in the lake, watching the sunset on the beach, and anything else that you hear in a Pure Michigan Ad. With friends also coming up during the summer, this vacation is promising to be a good one.

    (Pure summer Davekat and minor Rosemary fluff)
