    Summary

    In 2011, Victor Nikiforov disappeared from the world of figure skating. One day, he was a champion, and the next, he was gone, vanished from public life without a word. Although Yuuri Katsuki skated on without his idol, five years later he finds himself rudderless, reluctant to return to Hasetsu but sick of skating alone.

    It takes a call to his sister to wake him to action. Tourism is down, and the Katsukis are thinking of selling Yu-topia. Desperate to send money home, Yuuri looks for a job in the US.

    That's how he winds up in Chicago, standing on a stranger's doorstep to introduce himself as the family's brand new nanny. The last thing he expects is for Victor to be the one who opens the door.

    But even as Yuuri settles into his job and bonds with Victor's daughter, questions arise. What happened to Victor's career? Where is the girl's mother? And what awaits Yuuri behind the many locked doors in Victor's aging brownstone?

    Summary

    Shane leaves after killing Otis. Over a year later, his return has unexpected consequences for the group—and for Rick.

     

     

    His first impression of Shane is the heavy fall of those stupid combat boots on the bare floorboards. A sense of motion from the shadowed corner, and he steps into view. He looks, impossibly, just as he did the night he left—even wearing the same clothes. It’s as though he only stepped forward in time, departing that night from Hershel’s farm and arriving here, having forwent all the living in between.

    Summary

    Erik Lehnsherr was orphaned at the age of 13. He did okay in foster homes until at 15, he began to exhibit weird and inexplicable abilities. Fearing institutionalization or experimentation, he ran, resorting to petty crime and street living. Now at 31, he’s cleaned up his act and finally gotten his life halfway together. Or so he thought until he finds a silent, moody eleven-year-old waiting for him on his doorstep.

    Charles Xavier is one of the top psychologists in the nation. He's never told anyone that a big part of his success is that he can literally hear what his patients are thinking, making it much easier to sort through their troubles. One day, he finds himself inextricably drawn to the distress of a man and his new found son, and he feels compelled to help. It gets more complicated when the boy show signs of having powers of his own.

    Summary

    "Do you remember where you were burned?”

    “Julia, spit it out, please.”

    Julia does not spit it out, as it happens. What she does is help Quentin sit up so he can see his feet. Or, rather, his foot, because where the lower part of his left leg should be making a lump under the blankets, there is nothing at all.

    Quentin survives the blast in the Mirror Realm, but at the cost of half his leg. In the aftermath, he's sent off to recover, but the thing is, he's not sure if anyone is really going to want him to come back now.

    As for Eliot? Well, first he has to find out what actually even happened.

    Summary

    “How old are you?” Percival heard himself ask absently.

    “19, Mr. Graves.” Was Newt’s tight-lipped answer. He sat down on one of the ornate couches and thanked the house elf who had appeared with a tea set.

    “You don't have to call me ‘Mr. Graves’. If we're to be married, I imagine you’ll be using my given name quite a bit.”

    “And are we? To be married I mean?”
    --
    After his expulsion from Hogwarts, Newt tries to regain his family's favor by entering an arranged marriage.
