    Summary

    “She’d laughed aloud the first time she saw him jump like a spooked cat at a flash of lightning; not her most empathetic moment, but then, she was no saint, no matter what Freddie believed. At any rate, he’d bluffed his way out of that one-- had tried to do the same for a full month’s worth of good old London rain afterward until she’d snapped and told him to just bloody admit it, for Christ’s sake, it’s not a sin to be scared.

    She was patient by necessity, not by natural inclination. And necessity was a rather difficult thing to justify when one’s partner’s only candid moments came when he was either exhausted, drunk, or cowering at the edge of psychosis.”

    Summary

    "How to get rid of your boyfriend. 26 black letters marring the pristine white of the search bar, a warped and deadly alphabet. Jenny cast a fearful glance toward her dorm’s locked door, praying to every god she used to adore that her nosy roommate stay the hell out.

    Her hands tingled, went numb. Like they’d been burned by the damning words they felt so compelled to type.

    There were...so many results. At least two 13-step wikiHows. Myriad articles from as many websites: girly blogs, fashion hubs, Livestrong.com. Youtube videos, Reddit threads-- all meant to help girls push their men away, break their hearts. But nothing, not one hit out of 2,600,000 said anything about taking their lives."

    Summary

    "You watch. Wait. What will it take, to tip you over your edge? Now that, I don’t know. Can’t know. But perhaps you do...yes. Yes, I think so. Someday, my dear, you won’t be able to hide from it. It will come for you-- it did for me, it will for us all. Your mind will fade, the very core of whatever you call self scrubbed away, leaving no trace behind on the white walls your world will become. You will be shattered, your pieces gathered and reshaped into a cracked and fragile facsimile of a whole: a number, a nobody. You’ll forget everything you ever thought you knew, even the memory of the sun’s face. And that more than anything should scare you."

    Summary

    "Hesitant, Emilia reached up to stroke the brilliant scarlet rose in her hair, wincing slightly as one finger got caught on a sharp thorn. The blood, hidden in the flower's velvet petals, welled up in a thin red line as she placed her finger delicately in her mouth to quell the faint flow of that red tide. There is danger hidden in beauty, she thought suddenly, incongruously, and thorns sharp and cutting ensconced in flowers of love."

    The story of Othello and Desdemona is one of passion burning too strong-- of idle thoughts twisting into suspicions wild and imaginations raging with jealousy and fervent desire to be taken at one's chaste word. The story of Emilia and Iago is a quieter tale, of sinister machinations and a shared madness that sinks its thorny claws in deep and drags hapless souls together into a mire that is either love, or insanity, or hatred...or everything of nothing first created.

    Summary

    There had been blood tonight. But tonight his father wasn’t here to cup his tears in calloused palms and tell him beautiful stories (not lies, never lies) of Mama up in Heaven singing with the angels. He was alone, touched only by the voices, the faces, the fire-- and it was an unsettling thing, extremely unsettling, to dream of people you’d never met.

     

    In which dreams are dreamt, fears are shared, and a simple man devotes his life and soul to a simple cause destined to fall at the hands of a skeptic tormented by a future he feels but cannot see.

    Summary

    A half-elf and a Dark elf walk into a bar- bloody Hell, no, you think this is some tavern fool's sorry joke? Hark, and I will tell you a tale of the Wild Roads, of Southern seas and battles fierce and unlikely friendship fit for the books of Bardic lore. ...If I had the books, that is. Think I forgot them somewhere along the way.

    Summary

    Where the ale flows, banter and fists flow alongside in equal measure, in the unending twilight of an adventurer roving far from his chosen road.

    In which much ale is imbibed, several punches fly, bears perform questionable acts with maidens fair, spells are woven, songs are sung, and a naive youth finds out the hard way why picking the pocket of a seasoned bard is a very bad idea.

    “A thin line separates a fool from an idiot. On one end of the line lies the fool and on the other, the idiot. Snap the line, then who’s the fool and who’s the idiot? That’s the million dollar question.”

    Summary

    "...Why, my dear husband...I am glad to think that in your eyes, I am a woman of more beauty than a goddess. But I pray tell, which goddess might you mean? Lovely Aphrodite?" Emilia flashed a coy smile into the looking glass and silently praised herself, in pleasurable guilt, for the alluring tones she had managed to achieve in her voice. "Ay, you flatter me much."

    Summary

    "Four missed calls. The notifications flashed across the phone’s small screen as he picked it up from the couch onto which it had been angrily flung. Cassio, every time. Cassio, the looker, the rake, the right hand. The usurper. Puffed-up, arrogant, self-important wanker--! But. He had called. Four times. Called him four times, and that in itself was anachronistic enough to give him pause. He could see no reason for such desperate seeking of contact. Their work was done: Othello’s farce of a marriage...dealt with; Brabantio powerless and in a right strop. The newlyweds off shagging somewhere before the tour, warming up to the music of groans and bodies joined in unholy communion, playing the swan song to their hideous love in this place, this time, this life. Roderigo gulled, driven to the brink of madness by the twin flames of elation and the passion of his own stupidity, buoyed up on the rising smoke of hopes no more substantial than sparks, bringing destruction in their effervescent glory before fading to nothing ere one could say they lightened. Cassio...well. Cassio, sitting like Patience on a monument, smiling at grief-- his grief. Holding his place. Owning the piece of-- no. That mattered not."

    Summary

    "Silence...silence, the absence of sound, absence of living presence, of motion, of speech…. He had seen, had had, too much of that of late, far too much-- enough to last five of the good King’s lifetimes of four score years. Too much of silence, and too little of life…." Edgar he nothing was, and would nothing be, for what was silence but the very absence of life?
