    Summary

    Arya has no idea why he offered her to come with him, or why she agreed on it so eagerly. The only thing she gets to know, is that in a house of a Faceless Assassin, where everything is either black or white, the shades sometimes blend, creating a gray area full of uncertainties. That sometimes to learn who you really are, first you have to become No One. In the end it doesn't matter; a broken, lonely girl or a ruthless hitman - they both might be just the same.

    Summary

    They idealized it, always, those inbred romantics, but that spoke nothing for the dim suffering that veiled this lifestyle of living on a prayer, pining after a bewitching, drifting light that flickered most days — something they loved with a heart full of youthful iron will, off-chance of becoming great, bright, remembered. They were dirty and unkempt, but their minds were brimming with beautiful, beautiful things, thoughts and dreams silvered with the stuff of hope. They were artists.

    She smiled. That is all; that is enough.

    Summary

    The first time any fan sees the face of the author of the bestselling Bleeding Love series, they're shocked.

    A young man in glasses and jeans steps out onto the stage of the talk show and the fandom collectively gasps. No one expected the author of a hit romance series about Kiera Mitchell, a young white girl, and her vampire lover Damien to be a gay, black man.

    (Kiera Mitchell and Gan Brown have far more in common than it seems on the surface.)

    Soft-spoken Gan Brown sits down next to the hostess. He crosses his legs, leans back, shakes her hand.

    Then he speaks, and the world falls silent.

     

    Four years ago, Gan Brown’s coping mechanism made him an international bestseller.

    This is never what he meant to happen.

    Summary

    She honestly doesn’t know what she’s doing here, among all of these models and designers and makeup artists. For a moment she can’t quite remember why she’s here, can’t think of a possible reason. She can only feel the pounding of the music in her ears, rhythmic and heavy and strong, and feel the crush of bodies around her as all these people mosh and grind against each other. It’s not as if she’s here for the dancing, so that’s one thing off the list- this music, this kind of dancing, so up close and personal with flesh sliding sinuously against flesh and people way too close together- that’s not really her thing.

    (And yet she’s still dancing, mingling with these predators and their prey. She doesn’t think she’s either- she doesn’t have the dead, lifeless eyes of the prey, nor the sharp smirks and angles of the predators. Rather, she thinks she might be something different, something...other. Maybe a bottom feeder, skulking about the room for the scraps of gossip that people inadvertently drop, or maybe a piece of algae, drifting about creating her own sustenance, her own life.)

    Summary

    Sweet Pea stares at her for a moment longer, fingers curling at his sides, as if he wants to touch her but knows he can’t. Not really, anyway. “You’re going to have to let me go,” he says, so much softer than she’s ever heard him before. His throat bobs with a harsh swallow, his dark eyes locking with hers. “You have to let me go, Sweetheart.”

    She shakes her head, eyes squeezing shut tightly. Her throat goes tight, eyes itching and rimmed red. “I can’t,” she tells him. Fingers ghost against her cheek, close and cold and coaxing her to look at him again, and when she finally opens her eyes Sweet Pea smiles down at her, a broken little thing.

    Summary

    The gates of St. James’s Park were locked by the time they arrived, but such a barrier posed no obstacle. They cleared the bars with a thought, passing through like ghosts.

    “Let there be light,” Aziraphale murmured. The walkway ahead was cast in a bluish glow.

    Crowley hissed, recoiling slightly from what lay a short distance ahead. “They’re here already.”

    Aziraphale took several steps forward, squinting. The bridge wasn’t quite visible, but the reddish aura emanating from the vicinity of the water was unmistakable.

    “Stay behind me,” he insisted, continuing to walk. “Under no circumstances take the lead.”

    With a touch of weary sarcasm, Crowley chuckled. “Get thee behind me, Satan, is that it?”
