    Summary

    "Sunlight bouncing off his fur, Moomin came careening towards him, and all Snufkin wants is to hop from the ledge, take those hands in his own, kiss him on his forehead, his nose- All of a sudden, all the anxiety inside him becomes a clean, deep pool, settling itself into a quiet shape. Snufkin thinks of a word he cannot say aloud."

    Summary

    Snufkin returns to Moominvalley, but some things have changed. Following an accident which took place while he was away, Moomin has become thoughtful and distant. It isn't until Snufkin is about to leave the following year - and is prevented from doing so by a sudden, persistent illness, meaning he must spend winter with Moomin for the first time - that he learns the full story and comes to understand how best to help his friend.

    In the meantime, Snufkin realizes his own feelings have begun to change, and must decide whether his fear of losing freedom will prevent him from accepting a place in the hearts of those who care for him most.

    Summary

    “I know you have to go.” His dark eyes fringed with tears. “I understand,” his voice cracked. “I do. Forgive me. I’ll miss you.”

    Snufkin was shaken, and remembering it makes him shaken again.

    “You’ll be asleep while I’m gone,” he had soothed. “I’ll be back next spring. You’ll hardly notice I’m gone.”

    Moomin hugged him, warm and soft and not suffocating the way Snufkin had expected.

    Summary

    “You don’t know what it’s like to just go along with something for basically your whole life, only to realise that you don’t want that anymore, but then you don’t know what to do because so much of you has been attached to it for so long that you can’t really let go of it!”

    The problem with Snorkmaiden, you see, is that she's not Snufkin.

    Summary

    The printer is whirring when he steps inside the lab; when he glances at it, the paper is headed with Dear Evan Hansen so he snatches it up.
    Evan Hansen is hunched at one of the computer desks, logging out of his google docs account and chewing on his thumbnail. Connor watches him for a moment, struggling for something to say, and then blurts out, “So what happened to your arm?”

     

    Connor Murphy doesn't kill himself. There's an overdose of pills that doesn't get taken, help that finally gets offered, and friendships formed through group chats and unlikely circumstances. And everyone learns to live for the moments that are full of a little bit of light.
