    Summary

    It is Sakura’s very first solitary mission. The parameters are clear, and despite the low probability of conflict, in its way, the mission is important.

    Winter in the Land of Iron is notoriously brutal, and the flu season is dangerous to the elderly. Sakura is to go to the Land of Iron and help an old lady recover from her cough.

    That’s all. That’s it.

    Summary

    The Failbetter Discord server got to thinking last night, and I felt my writing brain rekindled - like a menorah. The original Seeking storyline is so entrenched in Christianity that it was fascinating to consider the alternative; here’s a take on what it’s like to be a Jewish Seeker of the Name.

    I’m Jewish, so I drew on a lot of my own background for this, but huge thanks to necromancybitch for helping me workshop and build up these ideas! Bonus thanks to Wiwaxia foliosa, Bananatron, and the Forgettable Curator, among others, for giving me extra creative fuel.

    This story contains spoilers for essentially the entirety of Seeking Mr Eaten's Name, including - in concept at least - the Grieve ending.

    Summary

    Jester pulls the copper wire taut again, and says, “Hi! Twenty-five words only. Who are you? Where’s Molly and why didn’t he answer? What’s so complicated?” She pauses, then adds, “Are you pooping right at this very moment?”

    There’s a long silence on the other end of the spell. Then the tiefling says, with a tone of utter resignation, “Molly just told me about the limit. I’m Percy. It’s complicated.”

    Summary

    “I don’t know… if I believe in heroes… especially after… your story,” he says. “But when I was… in the laboratory… I often wished… that a hero… would come save me.”

    She twists her lips wryly, and says without thinking, “And instead, they put you in another cage.”

    Lady Nagant may be a failure of a hero and a failure of a human being, but it’ll be a cold day in hell before she lets that be the reason for failing the kid in the neighboring cell.
