    Summary

    "Tomorrow is broken. Tomorrow is nowhere."

    A year has passed since the Phantom Thieves struck down a god and saved Tokyo from a terrible fate. But when people all over the globe begin to suffer from "Paranoia Syndrome," mysterious seizures which leave them contorted and unconscious, Akira Kurusu finds himself in the Velvet Room once more, demanding answers for the affliction. His investigation leads him to the Dead Sea, the rotted remnants of the cognitive world, where all things go to be forgotten - including someone the Thieves had thought to be long gone.

    Meanwhile, Akira's comatose body is found in the waking world, and his terrified friends suspect the worst. Akira's confidants struggle to learn the truth behind Paranoia Syndrome, while he and Goro Akechi approach a fated confrontation in the decaying shell of the cognitive Tokyo. As the sickness continues to spread, the Phantom Thieves must reunite and destroy the evil festering beneath the Dead Sea's waters, before its malignant influence unravels civilization forever.

    Summary

    But still, he treads through this unknown territory of family carefully, toes tipped for every step he took. (Because it terrifies him, how smoothly this arrangement has been so far. There it was tingling at the tips of his fingers, the impending doom that he fears might happen as soon as the comfort settles in his system. Because at end of the day, he knows that beneath this display of domesticity, there lies his ugly past, his unforgivable sins. It’s not supposed to be like this, it doesn’t make any sense, I don’t deserve any of this.)

     

    —in which two can play the game. but it begs the question: what is real, and what is fiction?

    Summary

    No. A child's voice, soft and desperate. There is one last possibility... you mustn't give in!

    But what else could he do?

    Something chuckled softly, deep in his heart, and suddenly his mask burned. Akechi clutched at it, metal and glass melting between his fingers, rolling molten into his throat to choke back his scream.

    Well, now. This is familiar.

    Summary

    Plenty of people had looked down on Eggsy throughout his life. He had gotten fairly used to it. Didn't mean it was fair, but he knew how these things worked. What really sucked was that the new Arthur was worse than the old one.

    “Eggsy grimaced. He didn’t know how to explain to Harry – who seemed like he hadn’t been discriminated against a day in his life – that the new Arthur kept giving him what amounted to suicide missions, and that he was currently bleeding out in a warehouse because of the deliberately bad intel she had given him.”

    Also featuring: Dean is harder to get rid of than Eggsy thought, his mum is going off the deep end, there are way too many nefarious plots in play, and Eggsy is really beginning to wish that Harry would stop holding his hand and kiss him instead.

    Summary

    “Attached to your neck is a collar that will inject a poison into your jugular vein two days from now. Forcibly removing the device will also trigger the poison. Somewhere on this island is the antidote.”

    His hands reached up to his neck and he felt the cool metal of the collar.

    “Live or die. Make your choice.”
