  2. Summary

    All Commitment content can be found here, and all can be considered canon to the universe of That Old Sweet Feeling. I'd recommend reading that first.

    Title from After the Bombs by The Decemberists. Lyrics:

    And after the bombs subside
    And this campaign
    Calls it good for the night
    We meet in the streets
    Will we meet in a bar's cold light?
    We grip at our hands
    We hold just a little tight
    After the bombs
    After the bombs
    Subside
    And after the rockets calm
    And the glimmer of fire
    Pretends an early dawn
    We pinch at our skin
    While we wonder how we
    Escaped harm
    We forget all our trials
    While there
    In our baby's arms
    After the rockets
    After the rockets
    Calm
    Then we'll go dancing
    Won't we go dancing
    Yes we'll go dancing
    'till it all
    Starts over again
    Then we'll go dancing
    Yes we go dancing
    Won't we'll go dancing
    'till it all
    Starts over again

    Summary

    Everyone in New Elfington knew that, if you wanted something good to eat and you didn’t want to bust your wallet, you went to Tostaada’s Cafe and Bakery.

    It wasn’t a particularly fancy place—it sat on the first floor of the building that took up the corner of Broadway and Main, built out of old red bricks with windows that were permanently fogged up. The sign above the door was written in both faded Common and Elvish, the letters curling and the paint cracked.

    The food, however, was damn good.

     

    A story about finding your way home, and finding out that maybe home wasn't as far away as you previously thought.

    Summary

    Life can be pretty hard living in a city under a totalitarian regime. Between adhering to the ridiculous curfew, keeping himself from being gunned down by a passing patrolman, and paying his unnecessary tolls to the state for, say, breathing, Sokka has his hands full just getting to work. Add aiding a resistance group on top of that, and Sokka should really be getting paid for this.

    Then, one night, Sokka finds an injured patrolman collapsed in the street, who tells him with blood on his lips, “If the patrol finds me, I’m dead.”

    Summary

    “It’s true in the way any story is,” Caduceus says. “It’s true to the way I heard it. And if it is not true in the facts exactly as they happened I think it is true to the Wildmother and the ways She has been present in the lives of many. They are true to the ways I have known Her.”

    Fjord nods. “It’s a beautiful story.”

    “It is,” Caduceus says. He lays back on his bedroll, stretching out, all long and thin like the fragile branches of something. “So is yours, you know.”

    ---

    Between Uk'otoa and the peace talks, Fjord and Caduceus have some things to say to each other.

    Summary

    “Veth,” he says, quiet enough that he hopes she won’t hear.

    “Hm?” she answers. And a moment passes between them where this feels normal: that he calls her Veth, and she answers.

    Then it dissolves.

    Caleb scrambles for a justification, an excuse, besides, "sometimes I just want to say your name, to hear it, to hear how it sounds in my voice." Foolish.

    (After prodding at lingering wounds, a drunken Caleb sees a little more clearly.)

    Summary

    High in the sky, watching over every planet, the stars live.

    There are countless stars, just as there are countless people on the planets they shine above.

    The purpose of stars is to watch. The purpose of stars is not to get involved. The purpose of stars is certainly not to fall in love.

    And certainly not with each other.

    This is the story of two stars, a mismatched collection of people from the planet below them, hope, and- most of all- love.
