    Summary

    Two smart-ass heroes walk into a bar... No, that's not how it goes. One hero is from a far future where mankind has gone to outer space and promptly screwed things up. The other is from a steampunk universe where mankind has learned the secrets of an arcane science and taken their sweet time screwing things up. Both of them wind up in a pre-industrial universe where people are using magic, of all things. And somebody wants to screw it up. Not on their watch.

    Summary

    A hero's tale is never over, not when there is need
    A life to save, a beast to slay, to come home on a milk-white steed

     

    These three things remember well when evil walks the night:
    The Watcher’s eye, the mage’s spell, the Slayer’s will to fight.

     

    Buffy in Valdemar, take two.

    Summary

    Kir's family hadn't seen him in years, his younger sister had never actually met him at all. Assuming him dead had been safer for everyone all around, and breaking what could be called a comforting illusion seldom went well.

    Kir himself hadn't seen his family in decades, and had consciously avoided thinking about them for years. Assuming them lost to him forever had been safer for everyone all around, and hoping for something else only made it easier to be hurt.

    But they all agreed that this was going to be hard.
