  2. Summary

    You've done it. You've won. Lord English has been defeated. The three-slash-five-session catastrophe that's ruled and ruined all your lives is almost over. All that's left to do is wait for your Universe Tadpole to grow into a Universe Frog so you can claim your Prize. You can finally relax and take care of the things that had to be left by the wayside during the mad scramble to the finish. You can all take it easy now. Right?

    Yeah. Right.

    When two new planets slot themselves into place in orbit around Skaia, no one is all that surprised. SBURB was bound to throw something their way, after all. Sure, no one was expecting two 'new' Players, but that's besides the point.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Things don't get any simpler in the new Universe, either.

    After all, how could they, in a world born from five Game Sessions combined into one?

    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?

    Summary

    “your hair’s longer,” is the first thing tillman says, standing in the doorway of declan’s apartment.

     

    “yeah,” they respond, after a moment - caught off guard, probably, “hair does that.”

    -

    (or; tillman shows up at declan's apartment after three and a half years of not talking, and meets their cat, among other things.)

    Summary

    Literally "the spirit of a place." Once used to describe protective spirits, it also applies to sentient locations and their personifications.

    Or, as a very wise man once put it, "stuff can be two things!"

    In which Cecil is Night Vale, and Carlos loves him wholly.

    Summary

    The laugh that stumbled out of Gordon was pleasant to Tommy’s ears. It was genuine, mellow, not shrilled out from nervousness or anger like so many of his previous laughs had been. The sound pulled a smile from Tommy. He wanted to keep hearing it. He wanted to keep making it happen.
    “If you need to get away,” he continued tentatively, “I know a place. It’s quiet.”

    Gordon and Tommy are tired and Chuck E. Cheese is too loud. They step outside for a minute and decide to get out of there.
