    Summary

    "After three-quarters of a century spent writing only about this long journey of ours, I have decided to begin a personal log in addition to the now four-volume long record of our travels. Davenport gifted me this lovely journal for this world’s mid-winter holiday and insisted that I use it to write about topics I was interested in. To take a break from biographical information. He fails to understand, however, that biographies are what interest me ... Thus, in keeping with my one true love of biography, I think I shall endeavor to tell the epic tales of the lives of my companions. Amazing, that after 75 years, I don’t know as much about them as I feel I should. We are all indescribably close and yet their pasts remain somewhat of a mystery. In addition to my personal fascination, is it not important to record their stories as context for our journey?"

    Five years after the Day of Story and Song, excerpts from Lucretia's personal journal are used to create a biography of the Heroes of the Age.

    Summary

    "What does Davenport regret most across the entire arc?"

    "I think- and I think he's never admitted this to anybody- but during the very end of their century abroad, they were deciding what to do with this incredible power that they had discovered, and there were two dissenting opinions. Most folks wanted to make these grand relics and hide them and Lucretia wanted to put this shield up over the world. Even after everything that happened, once he was sorta cogent again, I think Davenport regretted not giving Lucretia's suggestion the weight it deserved and truly considering it."

    Davenport goes back.

    Summary

    Balance is full of so many stories, and not all of them take years to tell. So many of them are contained in just a moment.
    (collection of unconnected TAZ snippets of various moments, slices of time, etc. A lot will be angst because apparently that's what I write. Tags will be updated as needed!)

    1. How did Magnus get Julia's ring back after Raven's Roost?
    2. You should have known something was wrong when they boys returned from Wonderland.
    3. The Director always has music playing in her office.
    4. Thoughts on the Light of Creation and craveability,
    5. The birds take a day off (Stolen Century fluff)
    6. A quiet Starblaster moment with Dav & Lucy.
    7. Davenport goes to sea. Lucretia says goodbye.

    Canon divergent-ish in Angus not becoming a teacher straight after Taako offers.

    Summary

    This town had once been his, now it was nothing more than a empty husk of broken and abandoned buildings. It was nothing like the home he’d known as a child, and at the same time nothing had changed. He knew these streets, knew the way to get to the place he’d once called home. He knew what he had to do, and he knew it was going to hurt.

    Three men are kicked out of a bar, and have to meet their employer for the last job they’ll ever need to take somewhere else.

    (Or: I wrote a taz-inspired campaign but don’t have anyone to play it with. Time to drag the boys through it and roll for everything they try! Currently playing: Here There Be Gerblins.)

    Summary

    The scene in front of Taako is a familiar one. He’s in Glamour Springs, and there’s a crowd of people gathered around the front of his trailer, hands reaching for the small samples he’s laid out on the tray. Some of the hands are small, some wrinkled with age. Taako knows what’s going to happen well before it does, but no matter how hard he tries, he can’t stop them. He watches helplessly as the first person takes a bite.

     

    Both Kravitz and Taako have tragic pasts that come back to haunt them.
