    Summary

    A note from the past causes Magnus to contemplate the loves of his long life, and leads to an unexpected turning point in his relationship with Alec.

    Or, Why Magnus Never Married

    ***

    “Meaning well is not well enough,” Ragnor said to Magnus in some shabby French café several decades ago. “You remember what Simone said. ‘The danger is not that the soul doubts there’s any bread, but lest, by a lie, it persuades itself that it is not hungry.’ My dear friend, there is no bread. Do not pretend any of these well-meaning ‘acts of love’ feed that starving soul of yours.”

    “That’s not exactly how she said it. I do believe you’re paraphrasing.”

    “And you’re avoiding the issue, which I’ll allow because I’ve eaten too much and need to concentrate on digestion. But I hope you're listening too."

    Summary

    “Men.”

    “Tell me about it,” Trish says, her voice somehow managing to convey both too-chipper energy and exasperation of the highest level.

    “I don’t know how much I can, actually.”

    Trish grins, tipping the plastic bottle in Karen’s direction. “The Punisher has taken you on as a pet project, you spend your days building up more enemies than even Jessica can manage on a bad day, and you’re totally attracted to a vigilante who prowls the streets at night killing people. Does that pretty much cover it?”

    “How did you - I am not - there is nothing going on between me and Frank!”

    Summary

    There are children.

    Leia has always known this, but even so, having the direct proof of it in front of her tears at her heart. The children never had a choice.

    (She wonders if any of them had a choice.)

    She wants to give them a choice, and a tomorrow. She is not alone.
