    Summary

    After fielding a fake request for immediate assistance that seemed to come from the Governor of Maryland's office, Prentiss sends the half of the team that's been working the Helmsman investigation out on a totally other case in Nebraska. Four bodies have been found during the harvest, along the I-80 corridor through Nebraska, each of them eviscerated and hung up like a scarecrow in a different farmer's corn. Whether they'd meant to take the case or not, it's definitely legitimate.

    Meanwhile, Yves has dropped back in on the Gunmen, to inform them she's been contracted to look into their front company, but she's been offered an extension on the contract to kill them. After deciding she'd rather not kill them, she agrees to be used as a conduit back to her employer... Helmsman.

    Summary

    On First Day, in 9:41, Divine Justinia called together the mages and templars of southern Thedas, in an attempt to put an end to the war. The Conclave drew enough attention that only those of rank could get seats, inside the temple, but the village of Haven swarmed with interested parties, including Kirkwall's own revolutionary duo. When the sky cracked open, no survivors were expected...

    ---
    Amid more corpses that would need to be cleaned and named, Cullen found a writhing pile of flesh that he slowly resolved into two figures struggling to get up. He recognised the grey, horned face as it appeared. "Adaar?"

    Beneath the fallen qunari, a pair of brown hands stretched out, one glowing the same green as the sky, and a breathless 'gerroff mh' could be heard.
    ---

    And then, things got weird.

    Summary

    The Circle of Magi was an unforgiving environment to grow up in, and while some mages thrived in its tightly-structured confines, others threw themselves out the windows of the upper storeys, just to be sure they'd never have to go back. In between were the ones who grated at the edges, secretly indulging in everything from the basic facets of life denied them to the study of forbidden magics, from wild escape attempts to filling the templar barracks with bees. These were the Pranksters of Kinloch Hold.

    Summary

    Langly's trying to clean up the mess yet another encounter with a troublesome tabloid reporter has made of his seventeen years supposedly dead and buried, when he finds that a photo he didn't catch the first time has inspired a group of writers to add him to their collection of erotic fiction. A few clicks and a little scrolling, and there are suddenly way too many names he knows on the page.

    Summary

    The essential truth of life is that nothing stays the same. One learns, one grows, and sometimes one comes back from the dead to kick ass and take names. Or that's what it looks like from the outside, anyway. The hunt for Helmsman continues, and our heroes discover an awful lot about themselves and each other along the way.

    Summary

    The Rhapsody Codex is designed to make clearer the places Rhapsody in Ass Major diverges from DA canon, and also to fill in some parts of Thedosian life and culture that are not explored, elsewhere. Some canon divergence has to do with when we started writing this -- right after Inquisition came out, but before any of the DLC or WoT2. Basically, the Rhapsody Codex is a collection of the whats and whys of the series. (And maybe, if you're lucky, a couple of Howes.) This is a work in progress, and will periodically be updated. The codex may move more quickly than the continuity edits, at times.

    Summary

    Byers is sure Susanne's broken up with him. He's not wrong, but she hasn't said a word to him about it, yet. She's still writing letters, trying to figure out how to say goodbye, now that they've just said hello, again. Chaz is trying to figure out exactly why Byers knows, without letting Alcea know he thinks Susanne's converted. Alcea wants to know why Chaz is so interested in her mother's writing. Reid and Langly are just trying to have a good time, in the few hours they have before things get serious again, and they'd really like to be left to that. Later, they'll have to interview Paul Asher, to see what he knows about the abductions of his 'wife' and stepdaughter.

    Summary

    Recent events have pushed Chaz well past his limits, and the nightmares won't stop. In pursuit of complete exhaustion, in the hopes it'll let him get four or five hours of sleep, he lets Hafidha talk him into going to a new nightclub, where he intends to drink until he stops caring and dance until he drops.

    Drink, dance, fuck, sleep. He hoped.

    Summary

    Our heroes go to investigate a cabin suggested to have been the last location of a victim of the 'Snow Princess', whose victims are all found frozen to death after freak shifts in the weather. Once there, they realise there's been no victim, and they've walked into a trap. Fortunately, two geniuses in a room leads to a multitude of almost bright ideas, at least one of them leading to the entirely traditional 'snowed in' result of getting very laid. For warmth. Of course.

    Summary

    Reid and Langly finally have the conversations Reid's been procrastinating about: what was with that message and what happened between the donut shop and the hospital? Renovations begin at the most annoying possible time. Byers gets some frightening news about the woman he's loved for almost thirty years, and then some much, much stranger news regarding the informant he's been so curious about. And that's when the shit hits the fan.

    Who is Alcea, and what does Susanne Modeski have to do with any of this? with all of this

    Summary

    Byers has a problem: Langly's getting laid. And not just getting laid, but fairly regularly getting banged against the shared bathroom wall. And Byers knows he shouldn't be, but he can't help listening. It's all right, as long as he doesn't come -- or that's what he tells himself.

    Langly has a problem: Byers has been more and more stupid and distracted, over the last few days. Finally, Byers says it's because he can't sleep with all the fucking noise -- the entirely literal fucking noise. So, Langly stops fucking at home, for a week.

    Byers doesn't get any better, without the noise, because now he's distracted by the lack of it. Langly decides it's time to try a different solution to this problem.
