    Summary

    The Paradoxical Amative Axiom: any given entity that has been ensorcelled or cursed to avoid a certain target emotion for fear of submitting to said ensorcellment or curse can still fall to insipient impulses regardless of how much said entity has prepared.

    Or: against all odds and against all reason, Esther is the one who fell first.

    Summary

    Jaime wakes to a blinding light.

    At first, he thinks it must be dragonfire, white hot and crackling through the crumbling castle walls to finish off what little Euron Greyjoy and the dungeon ceiling had left of him.

    But he is not in the bowels of the Red Keep, crushed beneath the bricks. He is not in the Keep at all.

    Summary

    Closure. It's not something she'll get from talking to the parents she never really knew, and it's not something she'll ever get from the Handler, even if she could find a version of her still alive. She doesn't belong with either of those families, not any more.

    But there is one family that offered her a place, without ties, an open door. His eyes, so earnest. He looked at her like he was really seeing her, like he was looking straight at her. She could get the briefcase, go back—or forward, technically—and find him. Find them. Find out if they really meant it. If she could really have a home, a family—one that's fucked up and dysfunctional, sure, but one that she's pretty sure wouldn't use her for her powers, wouldn't see her as a tool to further their own ambitions. Find out if she could belong.

    Which is when she realises that she's pregnant.

    Summary

    For reasons known only to himself, AFC Richmond owner Rupert Mannion suddenly fires his manager and hires an American football coach who knows nothing about the game. Rupert's wife has no idea what could be going through his head. She also has no idea that she's about to have the worst - and then maybe the best - year of her life, and that the new manager is going to be her saving grace.
