    Summary

    The bigness of the world is redemption. Despair compresses you into a small space, and a depression is literally a hollow in the ground. To dig deeper into the self, to go underground, is sometimes necessary, but so is the other route of getting out of yourself, into the larger world, into the openness in which you need not clutch your story and your troubles so tightly to your chest. Being able to travel both ways matters, and sometimes the way back into the heart of the question begins by going outward and beyond.
    -Rebecca Solnit, "The Faraway Nearby"

     

    Hypnos has been reaching out for a very, very long time. Thanatos asks the Fates to help him reach back.

    Summary

    Hypnos is so often at his post, when he’s not with Thanatos. Thanatos wonders, again, how he never noticed…

    He never noticed a lot of things; he’s not sure how. He supposes he just never came home enough; there was always work and he wanted--wants--so much to help the House. To do what is best for it, because that pleases Mother.

    Summary


    He’s always known Felix better than anyone, and knows that for all his qualms about nobility, Felix is honorable and righteous—like a knight straight out of the tales Ingrid and Ashe liked so much.

    And so Sylvain knows that as soon as the battle ends, Felix is going to leave.

    Sylvain won't allow their paths to diverge.

    Summary

    Legends tell of a valiant warrior, blessed by the divine, betrayed by the leader he fought so hard to serve, locked into an eternal half-life. Called "goblin," this man lives forever, watching the years pass him by, until his fated other half can release him.

    (It’s funny, Nico thinks. They say legends are always a little true.)
