    Summary

    Public figures vs. Private lives

    Public figures are the primary source of entertainment and news... whether it be people with extraordinary talent, news anchors and show hosts, politicians, or drama-ridden roaches. They are the center of attention. Private lives, however, are of no interest to anyone. They are the day-ins and day-outs of the lives of nobodies, of the average people. They are the 9-5 jobs followed by dinner and a "relaxing night in," boring.

    So, how does one get to be a public figure? Well, some with extraordinary talents and skills are sought out or recruited by public agencies, like the Butterfly Agency. Others are signed on by happenstance or during a try-out.

    Sophia Windsor, formerly Sophie, is one of the lucky few who is offered a contract at the young age of 17. The contract would fulfill her dreams of creating and inventing new products that would help those who need them, and put herself and her family in the spotlight as public figures. The contract only asks for her signature in exchange for the goodlife, as seen in her cousin's contract, but is it too good to be true?

    Summary

    "I bring the rain with me, Koutarou," Akaashi argues weakly, eyes wet but still impossibly beautiful. It isn't fair. Their world hardly ever is. Bokuto doesn't remember when that fact had long ceased to be a bother to him anymore.

    Beautiful people are harbingers of rain. Akaashi Keiji is beautiful. Therefore, Akaashi Keiji is a harbinger of rain. If A is to B and B is to C then A is to C and so on and so forth – logic. Categorical syllogisms. The transitive property. There's something about it that spells out a formula for a tragedy but Bokuto can hardly recall the concept, much less understand the underlying theory behind. He shakes his head; it doesn't matter. Most things hardly do, nowadays.

    "I don't mind," Bokuto says, not a care in the world. "Give me all your rainy days. Stay."

    Summary

    "It takes a village to raise a child"

    Uzushio is that village. She's been alive longer than anyone else, has loved and lost more children than anyone can comprehend. She's more than just the ninja village and after the Fall she has had enough. She ventures out into the world to look for her lost children. Along the way she becomes a magnet for abandoned, lost and dangerous children
    (She wonders if all adults are incompetent at childcare? Maybe she should write a parenting manual at the end of all this? Sage knows the parents and villages her foundlings are from could do with one!).
    Mama Uzu builds a family and feeds them. Maybe she fixes some problems along the way, after all isn't that what mothers do?

    Jinchuriki-centric (because those babies were hard done by), strong female characters (because they were also hard done by) and people have conversations and hugs (because they are necessary for healthy growth).

    Next Chapter - Yugito Part Six: It's Yugito's birthday. Matatabi has a super awesome present for her. She falls in love.

In the past three years, much has changed, as Macy and Harry navigate life as a bicoastal married couple, alternating between the Azores Islands and Vera Manor. Macy has a mysterious dream one night, and since her daughter Maya is so precocious, how hard could a 2nd pregnancy be? Meanwhile, Abigael and Mel live together in NYC, want kids someday, and nobody trusts Abigael with their own. A suspected Sarcana rebel strikes Macy's she-shed. Harry spirits Macy away to Portugal.

    И она улыбается в ответ, и ты понимаешь, что все это было не зря, что она рада тебе так же, как и ты рада ей. Что вы продолжите эту ослепительную прогулку вместе, и обе будете взрываться фейерверками, окрашивая небо снова и снова. И самое главное, окрашивая друг друга.

    Summary

    “Shouyou-kun?”
    His eyes shot wide open to see Atsumu’s face in front of him.
    “Are ya okay?” Atsumu asks. “Were ya bored of us already?”
    Heat rushed back up Hinata’s face, and he shakes his head once. “No, no I wasn’t! I-I’m fine.” he says, biting his lip to suppress the smile he can’t seem to contain. He already knew what he wanted but.. Does he have to choose?
    He glances at Osamu, a quiet chuckle escapes his breath as he looks down. Can’t he have both?
    “I’m more than fine.”
