    Summary

    "There was still no sign of his brother’s mysterious dad. He’d never seen the man before, so he couldn’t help but be curious and a little bit excited to see just who Mort Palmer really was. Would he arrive wearing a suit, clutching a briefcase, with slicked back hair and secret service sunglasses? Or would he be a hunchback, with a snaggle-tooth smile and a receding hairline? Or would lighting split the sky the second he arrived, his hair frazzled like a mad scientist, with an eye patch and a mustache befitting Snidely Whiplash, Dudley Do-Right of the Royal Canadian Mounties’s sworn enemy?"

    In which Greg meets his brother's biological father for the first time and things don't go as planned, though that's not entirely a surprise.

    Summary

    The notes on the sheet music blurred together in a mess of black and white speckles the longer Wirt squinted at them. He’d only had the clarinet for a few months, and learning to read music was even harder than learning to read words. It was easier just to play things based on what he’d heard, but his dad didn’t like when he did that. Reading sheet music was the right way to learn how to play, he’d tell him.

    "You will not be lazy with this instrument and cut corners just because guessing at the notes is easier."

    Summary

    Greg could see from the crack in his bedroom door the sliver of light beneath the door across the hall. Wirt always stayed up way later than him. Sometimes he could see his shadow as he paced his room, flickering into the hallway as a reminder: I’m still here.

    Sometimes his brother needed reminders, too, though.

    Summary

    allieinarden: "The Thanksgiving immediately after the events of the series. Because I think about that a lot."

    Wirt had been so focused on trying to see Greg as his little brother – without any stipulations – that he’d forgotten about the very thing that made them half-brothers in the first place. Their dads.
