    Summary

    While digitizing the BBC archives, an intern who asked to remain anonymous discovered a transcript of a lost episode of the Great British Bake Off. The paper could neither be photocopied nor scanned as all the copies came out blank; and the actual footage was never found.

    Summary

    Every movie, every book, every story about the horrors of letting in the ghosts has prepared Dani for the constant state of alarm. The panic. The discomfort of the situation.

    Not a single goddamn one told her how stupid it would be.

    Summary

    They didn’t kiss, or even talk about it. It wasn’t real yet, maybe because Alexis wasn’t ready yet, after Ted, but it was possible, something she could hold close and dwell on with giddy anticipatory pleasure, Twyla’s face, Twyla’s freckles, Twyla’s voice. Something to look forward to.

    Something she probably ruined when she slept with Stevie on the night of the wedding reception.

    Summary

    Catra snickered softly into Adora's neck before pushing her head forward with the hand still grasping her ponytail, capturing her mouth yet again. Adora kissed back with all the ferocity of a princess of power, one of her hands coming around to tip Catra’s head back and deepen the kiss, fingers playing gently with the base of Catra’s ear.

     

     

     

    A popping sound filled the tent and then, “Adora, there you are!”

     

    Adora let out a shriek, and Catra leapt from her arms, landing on the table on all fours, hissing, her tail jagged and raised in warning behind her.

     

    “Oh, God, I’m so sorry.” Fucking Princess Sparkles.

     

    Or, 5 times Glimmer and Bow interrupt Catra and Adora making out +1 time they don't.

    Summary

    Suddenly Emma felt a hand on her shoulder, and she knew her dance partner was behind her. She took a deep breath and turned around.

    She was face to face with a beautiful young woman.

    Emma’s brain glitched for a long moment as she tried to piece it all together. The woman smiled wide, her deep brown eyes only betraying a hint of apprehension. Emma opened her mouth and closed it again, completely lost for words. Had she been paired with a woman?

    “Hi, Emma,” the woman said softly. “I’m Alyssa. I’m gonna be your dance partner.”

    “What?” Emma asked weakly, knowing her eyes were wide and confused.

    Alyssa gave her a reassuring smile. “I’m the lucky person who gets to teach you how to dance.”
