    Summary

    “Is she a friend?”

    He shrugs, though it’s a stiff movement. He knows he should just say yes, because it’s not untrue, because it’s the easiest way to explain what Karen is to him. But it also feels wrong, because friend seems like such an easy word to hold the complicated swirl of emotion he feels when he thinks about Karen. It’s both too much and too little to describe what she is to him -- a person who has been ally and advocate and antagonist all rolled into one, whose name has been both an invocation and affliction, whose memory sets off a warning light behind his eyes and a low, steady burn of longing across his veins.


    Frank Castle, after.

    Summary

    All the books and movies seem keen on operating under the assumption that magic is supposed to make your life easier. But apparently it was all lies, because being in one’s 20s seems to suck no matter what kind of spells you’re prone to casting. Emma Swan and Killian Jones, while “blessed” with the gift of magic, are certified emotional disasters—it’s a relief to know that at least they’ve found each other. A Contemporary CS Witches AU.

    Summary

    "Karen." It's Bob, the night copy-editor. "Why haven't you been answering my calls?"
    "Someone tried to kill me. Now I'm half-dead in a ditch."
    "Right," says Bob, unimpressed. "You've got queries in your story. Plug them, please."
    "Want me to shoot him?" inquires Frank.
    "Jesus!" shouts Karen. "Do not shoot the copy-editors for doing their jobs, Frank!"
