    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.

    Summary

    “Will you please, kidnap me?” Warlock requested in the same tone of voice he had asked to go to the zoo the day before.

    “Of course not, Warlock,” Aziraphale said immediately. “You are very safe here. The security is flawless.”

    “Don’t lie to him!” Crowley hissed, clutching the boy closer to him as though it would make him forget the words the angel had just spoken. “Do you want the Prince of This World to remember you as a liar at the time of the Apocalypse?”

    “Mommy and Daddy wouldn’t even care!” Warlock went on insistently, paying no heed to his nanny’s nonsense words. They made no sense, anyway.

    “Of course they would, Warlock,” Crowley said immediately. “After they noticed you were gone, anyway.”

    For once, Hades isn't waiting out spring alone.
    Alternatively: if Hades had known Eurydice was gonna be such a goddamned nuisance, he would've just let her go.

    Summary

    Molly tried her best. When Harry had told them, Arthur had asked excitedly, "is this a Muggle thing?" Hermione had hurried out a "no!" and a frantic history of gender diversity in the wizarding world.

    "It's just that I'm a girl," Harry had said, and Arthur had nodded and asked her about how telephone booths worked. He would call her by the right pronouns until the day he died at the respectable old age of one hundred and thirty three, and he would make it seem easy.

    But Molly had to try. Hermione explained things faster and higher-pitched every time Molly messed up a pronoun. Molly frowned and muttered and put extra potatoes on Harry's plate at breakfast. Harry slept in Ron's room, which didn't bother either of them but which made Hermione scowl.

    Harry got boxes of sweets and warm hugs, as Molly chewed things over. For her fifteenth Christmas, the Weasley sweater she would receive would be a bright, friendly, terrible pink.

    The next time Harry visited, Molly put her on Ginny's floor to sleep-- for some definition of sleep that involved Hermione hissing threats at three in the morning if Harry and Ginny didn't "shut up about Wronski feints, do you know what time it is."

    Drumknott begins dropping Vetinari hints about his... leanings. Vetinari, predictably, catches on very fast, but is enjoying the show rather too much to comment. For a while, at least.

    Summary

    In most towns out west, they’re just stories. Devils and ghosts and other such spirits are talked ‘bout ‘round campfires or over drinks, tall tales to spook those who don’t know better than to believe them. In most towns, a dead animal or a missin’ child is generally the work of coyotes. In most towns, rules can be broken, laws can be ignored, if you’ve got brains enough or bullets enough to keep from gettin’ strung up or shot down.
    Lily Lake ain’t one of those towns.

    'Rule Two: Don’t actually expect to learn anything about Physics from Miss. Quill’s lessons.

    - Rule 2a: Do expect to learn something about the art of battle strategy, and war. Do not ask where she got this information. People have gone missing from this school for less. See: Miss. Oswald. See: Mr. Armitage.

    - Rule 2b: Don’t say anything about the lack of teaching of physics to her face. People have gone missing from this school for less. See: Miss. Oswald. See: Mr. Armitage.'

    There are thirteen rules that Coal Hill Academy follows. They are simple. The consequences of not following them are extensive.

    Bill is certain, at this point, that the Doctor has a vendetta against her love life. There was the Freaky Space Puddle Affair, then the Pope Incident, and now it turns out that her Tinder date is an immortal bisexual English teacher who's determined on catfishing her in order to meet her tutor. She'd like to be mad, but then again not all catfish are as keen on spooning as Clara Oswald seems to be, so maybe Bill can forgive the Doctor. But this really is the last time.
