    Summary

    The first time she saw Forsythe Jones after seven years, he was smiling; the center of attention among a company of men and women eagerly hanging on his every word. Betty was standing at the other end of the room, but she might as well have been oceans away.

    In their youth, Forsythe Jones, or Jughead, as he had insisted on being called then, had not been comfortable in the spotlight. When Betty first met him, he had been standing in Archie’s shadow, watching as though he was no more than a mere onlooker. Now, he was much changed.

    She had met him at the bright age of sixteen, only recently having come out to society herself.

    She could still vividly remember the wounded anger on his face when they had last parted. Did he still remember her tears from back then?

    Summary

    Он чувствовал себя немного глупо, сидя в занавешенной кабинке, зная, что священник находится по другую сторону. «Я... не знаю, с чего начать», — признался Уилл после минуты неловкого молчания. Отец Лектер что-то промычал. «Есть стандартное начало: «Прости меня, Отец, ибо я согрешил». Затем вы называете количество дней, прошедших с момента вашей последней исповеди. Однако в нашем случае», — его голос потеплел, — «мы можем отказаться от некоторых формальностей».

    Summary

    The countries of Narin and Siskin have been at odds with each other for years; sometimes it seems that the conflict between them will never end. And while the sudden boom of the technology movement has helped launch businesses into success, it also fans the fires of deadly warfare.

    Poppy, a small-town amateur journalist, is suddenly left jobless after a robbery at Giant Pike Press goes wrong. In her search for answers and survival, she realizes that the only person who can help her might just be the same man who put her in this dire position in the first place.

    The day Tora, a reluctant bandit employed by the Balthumans, storms into Giant Pike Press in his own search for answers, he doesn't count on running into a feisty little editor. When she comes to him in the middle of the night, offering her help in exchange for the contents of the safe he stole, Tora can't refuse.

    As they hunt for evidence of Vincent Balthuman's treasonous dealings, Poppy and Tora find themselves in the wake of an unexpected romance. With corruption and the promise of war looming over their heads, will they survive to see a new future together?

    Note about the period-typical homophobia tag: This will include alluding to the possibility of being arrested or beat up for being queer, but no active homophobia takes place. Also there will be outdated terms used by the queer people in the story.
