    Arthur Stuart has been in a psych ward for 2 weeks after attempting to end his life, and now he is being transferred to a residential treatment center in America.

He becomes exposed to so many things he never would have thought about, and figures out a lot of stuff about himself including his childhood trauma that he didn't think was trauma, and where he truly belongs in his community.

    Summary

    For the first time since Maxwell's dramatic demise it feels like his ghost might stop haunting their lives. It seems fitting, somehow, that a reporter would be his exorcist.

    Summary

    After a dream of finding long-delayed bliss with Curt Wild, Arthur Stuart makes up his mind to go searching for him, rather than merely waiting in the hopes of stumbling across him. When he does find him, however, Curt is reluctant to meet with him except in an out-of-the-way establishment called "Molly's Place"... (A summary that, like the title, ceases to apply about halfway in...)

    To keep me satisfied."

    Summary

    Chapter II: He was forced to drop the Brian/Tommy story, and while no other media reported anything about what happened after the concert, that didn't change the fact dozens of persons heard his foolish question and rumors were slowly spreading about the connection between Brian Slade and Tommy Stone.

    Summary

    Brian and Curt split after that fiasco in the studio, but Curt's a man with a history of dependence and addiction, and quitting's never been easy for him. He keeps coming back, always hoping it'll be the last time and he can move on, even as he watches Brian change into a shadow of the man he loved. Still loves, if he's honest with himself.

    Ft. an alternate ending to the Gimme Danger scene where Mandy isn't the one that shows up backstage.

    Summary

    Brian's prone to rambling about just how much he admires Curt's work. Curt's never been good at taking compliments, but he's not just gonna let Brian spout all this nonsense like he's not equally praise-worthy.
    Except he's more than a little drunk, and he's not exactly good at words.

    Summary

    The charming village of Highbury was always quiet, even for less connected residents like Miss Amanda Smith, natural daughter of somebody, or young Arthur Stuart, apprentice to Mr. Perry the apothecary. As those two met on Christmas Day during Miss Smith's illness, neither of them could have guessed the upheavals their lives would soon see with the return of Mr. Weston's estranged son, Curt Wild, and the unexpected friend who would soon follow him to Highbury...

    With the most abject apologies to Jane Austen, in general and specifically for some of the highly improper things I have introduced into her orderly and proper world.

    Summary

    Arthur Stuart is given an assignment to investigate the disappearance of a fellow journalist. He quickly concludes that she disappeared because of something she learned as she worked on her own story, a retrospective on the most infamous defection in American history. But can he find out what she learned without meeting the same fate? And without ruining his still somewhat wobbly new relationship with Curt Wild, whose rock career is beginning to revive?

    It is quite crucial that you watch "Hail, Caesar!" before reading this if you ever intend to watch the movie at all. The very first chapter gives stuff away. Seriously, big spoilers. And it's streaming on Netflix right now, so there's no excuse, right? ;) The notes on the first chapter contain a link to the summary of the first part in this series, in case you skipped it due to its triggering content.

    Summary

    In the wake of a violent attack at a Curt Wild concert, Arthur Stuart quits his job at the Herald. He ends his final piece for the Herald (a first-hand, stream-of-consciousness column about the attack) with a plea to Brian Slade to contact Curt and ease his suffering. Arthur, of course, is also on hand to help Curt get through this tough time, but the more time passes, the more he wishes he hadn't quit his job after all, because there's so much about the attack that no one is writing about...

    (I was really hesitant to post this, for obvious reasons, but it's the start of a series, and I'm dying to post the second part, so I had to post it. I'll put up a summary (in a Google doc or something) of this along with part two for anyone who would be triggered by discussions of mass shootings.)
