    “What do you want, Jack?”

    He reached out and brushed his knuckles along her jaw, then laid his hand over her cheek. “Just to say goodbye, Lizzie,” he said. There was a strange gentleness in his voice she couldn’t make heads or tails of, only that it made his dark eyes look wounded in the light of the dying light of the fire. “I didn’t get the chance, before.”

    Lovely, lyrical snapshots of after.

    Summary

    Wooster has a reputation for pinching things--necklaces, amber statuettes, umbrellas--a reputation that becomes dashedly awkward when Lord Attenbury's emeralds go missing.

    "Bertie, you blot on the family escutcheon!" the aforementioned aunt, my good and deserving Aunt Dahlia, cried. "What are you doing here?"

    "I like that," I responded with no little heat. "Here I drove from the distant metrop. in answer to an ancient relative's urgent telegram, only to have her look at me like some battered corpse the cat dragged in."

    "I sent no blasted telegram!"

    I tut-tutted. "You most certainly did."

    "I did not."

    "You did."

    This would be 100% headcanon except that it makes all of Wooster ouch.

    When a magician and a witch, each in possession of real estate and an established household - and firm ideas about the proper running thereof - decide to cohabitate, the logistical complications are not to be taken lightly.

    "My tower could be moved, I suppose," Telemain said doubtfully. "The power required would be tremendous, and the modulations to the transport spell to ensure that it arrived with all the integral enchantments intact would be, hm - "

    Magical logistics + adults in love. Excellent.

    Summary

    Padma feels crowded with the words that are already scrawled on every inch of her, the power that she alone possesses, and she wonders if this new graffiti of education is overwriting that which already exists.

    Of the twelve pairs of ribs that comprise the thoracic cage, ten are attached to the sternum and two are floating, which makes Padma imagine pressing her wand to the bruised skin of someone's back and whispering Wingardium Leviosa until their bones slot into place.

    Gorgeous and eerie and delicate.
