    Summary

    "I doubt they would've been interested anyway."

    Danny snapped out of it. "In what?"

    Nicholas laughed. "My fantasies, such as they are. And I take it you're not really that obsessed with Bond girls, are you, admirable though they may be?"

    It was Danny's turn to laugh. "No, not really. There are plenty of other things in the world worth wanting!"

    "Such as?" Nicholas asked, raising his eyebrows. So fucking earnest.

    "Things I can't have," answered Danny, simply, looking him square in the eye.

    Summary

    "Look, the whole of London's cracking up," she told him. "I'm finding it hard enough to work as it is without my commute being screwed up by the buses going on strike, and half my books turning into birds. That angel is wrecking everything, but in particular, my life - and you're too busy hating yourself to open your eyes and deal with it. I'm telling you, it has to stop." 

         "Is that all still happening?" Crowley said vaguely. "But I found him."

         "Oh my God, you can tell you don't commute," Anathema said. "The buses went on strike, Mr. Crowley."

         "That's perfectly normal for London. You'll learn."

          "You're not listening! Not the drivers, the buses. They're organising - meeting in secret, holding little candlelight vigils. Nobody else really knows what's going on - everyone's just assuming it's, like, general TfL incompetence or something - but it's only a matter of time. So what are you going to do about it?"

        "Er... have they submitted a list of their demands?" Crowley said helplessly.

    Potentially one of the three.

    Summary

    Sequel to Kasvatus and Dispatches from Keuruu. Just like its predecessors, it's a fic about love - romantic, familial, and other forms. It's also still a tiny bit about sheep, as well as embalmed historical figures, Finnish folk music, condensed milk, backwoods sauna, and the occasional petrol bomb.
