    Summary

    Tamsyn Ashworth's life is turned upside down when reality is destroyed by an apocalyptic event and replaced with a world she only knows through video games. With no applicable skills, she bargains for her protection in the only way she knows how - with her knowledge of the future.

    But if she wants the story to go as she thinks it should, then she must keep many, many secrets.

    Even those of their enemies.

    Will she manage to survive in this new world she must call home, or will her honesty about herself ultimately be her undoing?

    Summary

    Damen dropped his backpack beside the library table and took the seat opposite his new pupil. The boy didn’t look up, slouched in his chair looking down at his phone. Damen took a moment to study him. He had fine blond hair that fell over his eyes, and his school uniform was meticulously neat despite his bad posture.

    “Laurent de Vere?”

    The boy looked up at him and Damen felt something warm shift in his belly. He was beautiful, fine features and startling blue eyes. “Who wants to know?” His voice was clipped and unfriendly.

    “I’m Damen Akielos. I was assigned to be your new math tutor.”

    At Hope Peak's Academy, the best of the best are taught how to refine their talents and learn how to be future leaders of the world. The best of the best are brought in to nurture these students, and to share their knowledge with the next generation.

    When they aren't busy shitposting and texting in their group chats, of course.

    Follow the teachers of Hope's Peak Academy as they text, hang out, reference outdated memes, deal with drama, and try not to kill each other in their Pathfinder, Starfinder, and D&D campaigns.

    Perhaps Chihiro should have added some filters, but then only Makoto would remain in the chats.

    Summary

    The war is over; winter has ended.

    The Pevensies have been crowned Kings and Queens of Narnia; finally allowed to enjoy their magical world the way the youngest Queen might have wished they had been able to from the beginning. It is here where they learn of the legends, the tales, the many chapters of the world's history; and it is here, by the surprise of an introduction to the eldest Narnian in existence (one, it is said, to have lived from the very second the world had been created), that the new royals realise more than one story told in their world might be true, for they stand face to face with Juliet Capulet, she who, once upon a classroom, they might have thought to be nothing but a fictional concoction made centuries prior.

    Thus begins the Golden Age of Narnia.

    James was observing him, head tilted slightly to the right. Something akin to concern coloring his face. “Oliver.”

    “Yes?”

    “Come with me.”

    (Or, Oliver is worried that things will change and James takes him to the woods so that they can talk.)

    Summary

    You still take the Lord’s name in vain. Your body observes the offices, but your mind is still vainglorious, verging on the solipsistic, and your soul no closer to God.

    In a lot of ways, he feels further.

    It is Lent, for Heaven’s sake, he tells himself. Lent. Abstinence, discipline, contemplation of simplicity in life, encouraging the richness of your soul to flourish in cleared ground.

    Another instalment in the long series of pieces based around the black box that is the Musketeers during the Spanish War.
