  2. Summary

    they fuck you up, your mum and dad. / they may not mean to, but they do. / they fill you with the faults they had / and add some extra, just for you. // but they were fucked up in their turn / by fools in old-style hats and coats, / who half the time were soppy-stern / and half at one another’s throats. // man hands on misery to man. / it deepens like a coastal shelf. / get out as early as you can, / and don’t have any kids yourself. (this be the verse, philip larkin)

    Summary

    Hermione frowned. “The real question is why the magic of Britain would be failing now, in fact.”

    “That is not the real question!” Ron said loudly; he’d woken up fully by now, and Harry had too; it was starting to sink in that they’d found the problem. “The real question is, how do we fix it?”

    if astolat's shorter fic is a three-course meal then this is a three-day banquet. reading this is nourishing. this is maybe a contrived metaphor but i can't be more coherent here i simply want to cut this fic up and eat it

    Summary

    "Do you--Harrington, do you know other gay people?"

    "One," Steve says, and then, after a moment, "and a half."

    "And a half?" Eddie boggles at him, "What does that mean?"

    "He's figuring it out!" says Steve, defensively, "Taking his time, y'know? Whatever, the point is. It's cool you're gay, man."

    Eddie comes out to Steve, and Steve's heartbroken about it for some reason. Eddie thinks Steve's dating Robin. Everyone else thinks Steve and Eddie have been dating this whole time. Robin doesn't get paid enough for this shit.

    Also, Hawkins has been cracked open like a badly-baked cake, and everyone's settled into the most mundane apocalypse possible. Eddie Munson starts a radio programme about it.

    Meanwhile, Steve gets his nails painted, and outsources a crisis he isn't having.

    "Transport, what happened here?"

    I consider saying that I wish I fucking knew. I discard that potential response as unproductive.

    Summary

    "Admit it, Slayer," Spike says, still grinning at her. "I liven up the place."

    Buffy rolls her eyes and says, "You're even deader than I am."

    Aka: Buffy sacrifices herself to save the world and winds up in a heavenly dimension capable of granting her every wish. And, oh, yeah—for some reason, Spike is here too.
