    Summary

    This picks up the Persuasion narrative from "Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I" at the point when Frederick returns to his hometown of Detroit, having left the Air Force to move in with his sister Sophia because she needs him. Of course, he will run into Anne Elliot in their old hometown, and this story tells of their interactions, alternating between Frederick's and Anne's POVs. Meanwhile, both of them also have to navigate the territory of being thirty-something Gen X-ers (this is set in the 2010's) who have mounting adult responsibilities - work, looking after their respective siblings' kids - even though they still want to feel young. The songs also keep coming - in addition to being devoted to "Learning To Fly", this story features a diverse soundtrack of '80s, '90's and '00s tunes.

    Summary

    At liberty before taking his new command, Frederick Wentworth found himself plagued by memories of the past. Having resolved to face those memories head-on, and hopefully secure his future happiness, he was not prepared to run afoul of entirely new obstacles.

    He was a fool twice over: once for leaving Anne Elliot in the first place, and again for never considering the next man wouldn't be so misguided.

    Summary

    Anne Ilao has always put her family first. It's the Filipino American way. Her father and sister, Walter and Eliza, cared more about their friends. Her sister, Maria, cared too much about everything - but especially her in-laws. So, it has always been up to Anne to care about the family as a whole. It's what she promised her mom she would do, before she passed.

    The one time she considered refusing this job, letting her family fend for themselves, was about 8 years ago. The year she met Erick Wentworth. He left (she broke both of their hearts), but now he's back.

    Anne is forced to confront her past, the one she's been trying very hard to forget, and confront her present. Is this the life she wants? Or really - can she go after the life she wants?
