  1. Summary

    What the American male really wants is two things: he wants to be blown by a stranger while reading a newspaper and he wants to be fucked by his buddy when he's drunk. Everything else is society.

    - W. H. Auden, The Table-Talk of W. H. Auden, Alan Ansen, 1990, pp. 80-81

    Or, Napoleon Solo begins to know himself, and Ilya Kuryakin makes his own happiness.

  3. Summary

    A take on the Alpha/Beta/Omega trope. In which I made up Germanic-root words for the A/O genders because Greek roots were linguistically implausible, the A/O genders are nominally hermaphroditic, and Steve and Bucky are both fitts, which is still illegal pre-WWII.

    Currently, the pieces can be read in any order (or not read); they're part of a continuity, not a chronological series.

  5. Summary

    Post-Sburb by a number of years, with diplomatic connections well-established between Alternia and Earth, the trolls and the kids try to live their lives.

    This seems to involve a lot of dressing up in suits on the parts of certain individuals. Mostly related to how Rose and Kanaya are finally getting married.

    (And sometimes it involves some discussions about Dave and Tavros's troll wigglers, and how growing up Earthborn makes them neither trolls nor human. But not yet.)

    Summary

    Smite me, Crowley thinks one day, about three or four days into the Beginning of the World. He feels rather daring about it, especially when God doesn’t answer. Puts a bit of a swagger in his slither.

    Summary

    Eyes narrowed, the driver gives [Salim] a reproving look.

    "I don't think you are telling the truth," he says, glancing at Salim's bag and sling.

    "I was trying to get to Ubar," Salim admits. "I sometimes walk in my sleep."

    "Ubar," says the driver, thoughtfully. "The City of Pillars on the old Incense Road. Allah destroyed it, you know. Covered it in sand from foundations to spires. Now, it is Irem, City of the Jinn."

    "Yes," Salim says, comforted by the familiar sound of the name. "That is the place."

    "Well, get in," says the driver, rubbing his arms vigorously. "We don't have all night."
