    Summary

    Nathaniel survived the final battle, Kitty stops by to visit him before going to work. Everyone is adjusting to their new physical limitations as well as their changed opinions on each other. Character relationships in this are intentionally ambiguous, fair warning.

    Summary

    "what's the matter with you? Did you loose a fight to your office supplies while I was gone? Had a dangerous run in with the copy machine?"

    Nathaniel fiddled and squirmed in his seat, not meeting my eye. "It's nothing, I just- it's nothing."

    Set about a year post Ptolemy's Gate but disregarding the demon uprising/final battle. Could be read as friendship or pre slash depending on how you want to look at it.

    Summary

    Nathaniel and Bartimaeus share a night in a dirty and dimly lit hotel room. Things don't go quite like Nathaniel expected. Not that he minds. Still, while finally getting what he's wanted for longer than he cares to admit he has to come to terms with his own strange feelings for his servant. Feelings that Bartimaeus can't possibly return. Or can he?

    Summary

    Given to the Seleucid empire as little more than a gift, Ptolemy must find a way to escape, and prevent his cousin from taking the throne lest a war divide the nations in bloody conflict.

    Hardship comes, however, when he is left bare without his servants, and he learns that worse than his wicked cousin, and the Seleucid king, Netos, is his son, the sadistic prince and his new master, Eupator.

    Summary

    When Nathaniel dies, instead of being dismissed, Bartimaeus goes to the afterlife with him. When he sees someone he loves, he isn't as happy as you might think. Takes place after The Gate of Ptolemy.

    Summary

    Arthur Underwood never locked Nathaniel in a room full of spirits. Without that scaring experience, Nathaniel's curiosity about djinn grows unhindered by fear. Unsatisfied with the lack of information he seeks out a more direct source. Bartimaeus, for his part, is not exactly prepared to be confronted with a child with too many questions and not enough books...again.

    Summary

    "Just so you know, I don't believe that John Mandrake is dead," Bartimaeus interrupts. A brief pause—very brief, because the djinni gets horribly bored if he doesn't hear himself speak for more than ten seconds—, and then, "But I do believe that you're doing your very best at beating him to death. Which I approve of in principle, of course. You know me - I'm very pro-beating wizards to death."

    Summary

    Bartimaeus is an assassin and Nathaniel is his handler, but it's really more about them trying to get over their emotional constipation long enough to have more than three words of actual communication, and even then it's not really about that because this was just supposed to be an outline piece.

    Summary

    Welcome to Viteri's Art Supplies, a small independent art shop nestled comfortably in the middle of Silverfield Lane, right between the "Emerald Palace" bookshop and Mr Lou's animal emporium.

    This is a story about new places, alien and familiar at once, spending one's days off cozied up in the café next to the train station, talking portraits, five scales per hour, blueberry muffins so delicious that they will make you cry, and about living a life you never thought you would experience.

    This is a story about Simpkin.

    Summary

    His affections for Ptolemy ran deep and unfaltering. He would have died for the boy. Even now, with it being an option, he longed only to give all that he was, all that he would ever be, in the blind hope that was so foolishly human, that Ptolemy would live.

    Such wasn't meant to be.

    Summary

    This was one of the stranger cases Lockwood and Co. took, and not just because of the ghost-summoning cult.

    Summary

    The objective of Kitty's and Nathaniel's little brush with death was to bring back one soul from the green pastures. The issue, however, is that the spell might have worked just a little too well.

    Sequel to "Three's A Company." Tags will be added as I go along to avoid spoilers.

    Summary

    ...but four could be a bit of a crowd.

    Or: Nathaniel and Kitty are planning something. Bartimaeus has no idea what, but he's wholly convinced that it will end with a disaster. Whether he's correct or not depends on one's perspective.

    Summary

    "He wonders, vaguely, what might have changed if they’d lived; all three of them against the world. It doesn’t really bear thinking about, but then again, he’ll be dead in moments. Why not spend those dwelling on happier things?"

    --

    Stroud's ending was pure poetic justice but...this.

    Summary

    Then, something occurred to him; he moved away, "The shadow is not your true self."

    Ammet quirked his head to the side, something he did to express curiosity when he couldn't be bothered to manifest facial features. "It is not." He agreed, his gaze lingering on Khaba's lips as if he still waited for the kiss. "My true shape is not for mortal eyes to see."

    ... or is it?

    (A pre-RoS excuse to write K swooning over his husband's eldritch form, just because I can and because Stroud was too much of a coward to write it himself.)

    Summary

    Khaba and Ammet spend a pleasant day together. It's a little ominous at times, but when you're an evil magician and a demon, what else can be expected?

    Black like coffee, sweet like sugar, fragrant like cinnamon - or all the shades of basically living in a coffee shop.
