    Summary

    “A woman,” Roberta Meserole had said once, lighting a long black cigarette with a silver lighter, “hides in plain sight. Visibility, Haveline, is our most important asset—”

    She looked up. Around. “Haveline,” she said, “that is not funny.”

    --

    or, how Ankh-Morpork acquired its first female Patrician very, very quietly.

    Summary

    "Like, finally here's a poem that isn't just some bloke whining about how a beautiful girl won’t give him sex, and it's basically 'sweet mother, I’m too gay to do my chores, blame Aphrodite'. Like, honestly? Most relatable thing I’ve read in years."

    Bill meets Sappho.

    Summary

    There is a tension in the air like the first raindrops steaming off the bitumen, on the brink of a summer storm: the sky holding its breath. Her husband says, "You keep comin' back. Every time I think I've finally cut the tether, you're there again."
    Maybe, just maybe, everything that falls down eventually rises.

    Summary

    It wasn’t always like this. When he came to her in the garden, the lines of his face were gentle and earnest, and his back had yet to bend, to stoop over with the weight of his kingdom. His voice was soft and his touches were gentle as he stretched out his arms to her, asking for everything and expecting nothing.

    Summary

    Orpheus didn't look back. He clenched his fists, sang his song, played his lyre, and stood in the sun with Eurydice by his side.

    And then he died.

    Eurydice has a bit of a problem with that.
