    Summary

    Alexis had glimpsed Jack before, and sometimes spoken of her to others in furtive whispers—she liked to gossip as much as anyone else, and Jack was gossip-worthy.

    But she had never really looked at her with full attention until her resurrection, when her eyes blinked open to meet Jack’s.

    Summary

    At the end of Library of Souls, Miss Peregrine and the rest of the peculiars save Jacob from being taken away, just in the nick of time. But what if they were a little too late? What if Jacob was taken, and ended up at Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, because by any definition of the word, Jacob did wander- not into a different world, but a different time?

    Summary

    Morgana's Academy is a school, disguised as a shop, that occasionally travels to other dimensions to pick up new students. If someone is magically strong enough to get into the school itself, rather than the shop facade, they are immediately enrolled.

    Harry Potter has just found this unusual school by accident, and now he, along with many other characters from different worlds, must study and live at Morgana's.

    Summary

    "Eleanor!" Looking horribly embarrassed, the woman turned to the bemused Pevensies. "I'm sorry, my daughter has a somewhat...overactive imagination. She's asking about your favourite game of pretend."

    Susan was already watching, with a touch of disbelief, for the hidden flinch so caught the secretive smile, and felt her heart quicken. Her parents were already laughing, and talking about the games she and her siblings were forever playing after the war. Her pulse was a roaring in her ears, because she knew the look in Eleanor West's eyes as well as the other girl could see into hers, because her own well meaning mother was saying "...some fantastical thing with talking animals and unicorns, where was it set darling?"

    "Narnia," she murmured, voice perfectly light, inconsequential, "we called it Narnia." Her parents nodded, unconcerned, and they were all chuckling over the vivid imaginations of children and her pulse was screaming in her ears, and then the girl before her was looping and arm through hers and tugging her towards the door, asking permission to be excused so she could show Susan the grounds for a bit and leave the adults to it.

    Summary

    ...because the Doorway might be just for them, a window into their heart, their very soul. But that wasn’t always a good thing. Children grew up surrounded by darkness, anxiety, hurt; could internalize it all - and then unintentionally tear a window in a space and time that lined up with that. After all it wasn’t only kids who wanted to explore who found Doorways, often it was ones who needed to escape.

    Summary

    A year after Jill's murderous rampage and Nancy's disappearance everything seems calm at the school, but both events have left a profound impression on the student body, desperately longing for home, and on Eleanor herself, shaken by her perceived failure to protect her students. Two new students arrive in this unsettled time: Forest, who has almost forgotten what it feels like to be human and isn't sure she wants to remember, and Sachi, who was only away for three weeks in Earth time but learned enough for several lifetimes. Meanwhile Kade is struggling to adjust to the extra responsibility and Christopher is shocked to discover that someone may be able to rival the Skeleton Girl in his affections.

    The reappearance of a face from the past brings these tensions to boiling point, now that the knowledge of how to make a Skeleton Key is out.

    Summary

    Doorways aren't always opened by choice. Sometimes they are yanked open and you are kicked through and it is slammed and locked behind you. And you are left to deal with whatever you've found on the other side. Even if what's on the other side is a world without your powers, your resources, your friends. But at least there's Diana Prince, willing to take you in.

    Summary

    There are so many doorways to fall through and so many ways to end up back. Not nearly so many ways to get home again. That doesn't stop them from hoping, keep them from searching. But here they can huddle together, a box of puzzle pieces that no longer fit. (Drabble Collection)
