    Summary

    “You’ve heard the rumors,” Mustang says, looking at Ed over the top of his latest report, “about the angels.”

    Ed scoffs and rolls his eyes, “Angels don’t exist, don’t be ridiculous.”

    “Of course, of course,” he murmurs, gaze sliding back down, “There have been multiple eye witness accounts, however.”

    Ed slouches into the chair and doesn’t bother to keep the contempt to from his voice when he says, “Don’t depend on anything with wings to save you. Things that were made to leave always end up doing so, in the end.”

    “Yes, well,” he says, “sometimes they come back.”

    Summary

    "Perhaps you'll find another soul to torture,” Corvo teases, “Another tired middle-aged father who is so desperate for your fickle attention."

    “There is no one else,” the Outsider replies suddenly, voice fierce. His brow pinches just barely. “There is no other soul like yours. When you’re gone, I’ll wait to find you again, when your soul is reincarnated in a thousand or so years.”

    Corvo’s heart is thudding in his ears and the Mark burns hot on his skin, under his wrappings, like it's about to burst into flames.

    And then, as though caught being too sentimental, the Outsider’s hands drop slowly from Corvo’s face. He looks away, voice quiet when he says, “Don't die, beloved. It would be so troublesome for me.”

    Corvo Attano and the Outsider, in a dance not yet occurred, and so very, very human. Or, the transformation of a lifeless god to a god in human flesh and blood with a living, beating heart.

    Summary

    “We need a plausible, respectable cover that allows us to stay in the same room without anyone getting suspicious. This was the least bother.” And then, suddenly, his businesslike demeanour falls away and he flutters his eyelashes. “Why, don’t you like being my hubby, Moran?”

    Summary

    Cecil has eyes everywhere in Night Vale. Literally. (Or: an exploration of Cecil's occasional omniscience.)

     

    The decision to keep a close eye on the new addition to Night Vale's scientific community had everything to do with Cecil's professional integrity as a journalist and nothing to do with Carlos's perfect hair or his beautiful lab coat or the strong, capable hand that Cecil was currently shaking.

    Carlos thinks he's found a way to solve the problem of the floating kittens. He just wasn't prepared for how cute they'd be.
