    Summary

    A bit of Math.
    The Ark is to the End of the World as to We can't do anything: Fuck we can. Same math: The Little Ones Die as to The Little Ones Live. Crowley and Aziraphale are putting everything on the line, against the laws of nature, not just for these wee ones, but for themselves. And they are spent. Now, every molecule of TRY is coming forth, every trick, every book, every debt called in. And to accomplish all this, they both, at the end of all things, might have to break their promises to one another.
    Torn Asunder, For Another.

    Summary

    'Aziraphale, will you please stop trying to look on the bright side! I've got lumbered with a skeleton horse that hates my guts, there is no bloody bright side!'

    Or, Hell have had enough of Crowley's inability to handle Hell Horses and give him something a bit different to ride. It doesn't go well.

    Summary

    Consider a universe, carried on the back of four elephants carried in turn on the back of the turtle. Much has been written about this improbable phenomenon, though perhaps not about the specific case of what happens if, say, any of the elephants suddenly needs to relieve a terrible back itch.

    Consider a universe. No, a different one – with significantly less turtles and considerably more metallic sounds going clunk in the night.

    Summary

    "Well," Joe says, staring at something on the floor, "I guess if I'm a philosopher, then I should say something super profound, right?"

    Joe is mostly saying this out loud just to hear it, but the words also arguably benefit a tall figure in a black robe standing six feet to the left.

    They are both observing the corpse slumped on the floor. It is Joe's corpse. It is unmoving.

    "This sucks," the blue, translucent shade of Joe posits, putting his hands on his hips.

    Summary

    Over and over again, Rincewind fails to die.

    Death changes in the process of watching him.
    -

    Death gestured to the barman with his half-empty glass. I JUST DON’T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT HIM, YOU KNOW.

    The barman nodded sagely. A lot of details about this… stranger and his story were oddly fuzzy, but he’d heard similar ones enough times to put the pieces together. “Ah yes, the one that got away.”

    Death tilted his skull, it was an odd expression, but he supposed it fit. INDEED.

    “Well, you’ll always have the dreams of what could have been, eh?” he winks conspiratorially.

    I’M… SORRY? I DON’T QUITE FOLLOW.

    “Your hair shining in the moonlight, his hand in yours, your faces coming closer together ''.

    HMM. NO, NO I DON’T THINK SO.

    “Denial? Yeah that’s how it is with lost love.”

    Lost love huh? Fondness perhaps, Death thought, from repeated contact. But none of the messy human ‘romance’ stuff that Ysabell liked to read about so much.

    But still. THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY? It was oddly fitting.

    Summary

    (Takes place directly after the events of Hogfather)

    What a way to spend Hogswatch morning! Discreetly disposing of a corpse.... it really wasn’t Death’s concern what happened to the empty vessel. But, this was a favor to his granddaughter. He felt like he owed her one. Or two. Or several. Leaving it to molder in the living room might ruin the holiday vibes a tad.
    There was a polite tap at Death’s bony shoulder.
    “Pardon me, sir, but where exactly are we going?”
    Death did not turn around.
    AH. I THOUGHT YOU HAD GONE ON YOUR WAY. YET, YOU ARE STILL HERE FOR SOME REASON.

    Summary

    The Truth was (probably) a very good book, with a message of privilege and bad parents, but personally, I couldn't really concentrate on the main plot or characters because the New Firm mesmerised me so bad I rather felt that the book had a sad ending. Anyway, I fix-it'd it. And maybe it's a smidgen ooc but I really hoped that the characters would, you know... Actually care about each other.
