    Summary

    “It is not my body that imprisons me,” Maedhros said with a pointed look at the shackles around his wrists.

    Sauron laughed. “You are quite mistaken. Take, for example, the – what is it your people call it? – the blossoming, I believe, is the local term; an interesting metaphor; the Sindar are of course very florally minded. It is most tiresome. Ah, I remember – opening.” He smirked. “Avoiding metaphor altogether, for of course it is an opening. There is the obvious if rather undignified physical action, of course, but what is strange to me is the effect that then has on the spirit – which opens, which yields. Therefore your body compels a subjection not merely to your own flesh but even to the flesh of another – and thus, of course, to the spirit of another. Now that is imprisonment, if you like!”

    Summary

    "You could've left me there," Adrian murmured, jerking his head back towards the burning beach in the distance. "For Stark and his DODC people to find me. Liz and Doris' lives would've actually fallen apart with my arrest, and all my work to take care of them would've gone to waste. You could've just left me there...but you didn't. So I'll make you another deal."

    Peter clenched his hands, fists shaking hard. "I'm giving you a second chance - but if you go back to what you were doing...I can't make any promises."

    "It would be stupid of me to expect you to, after all this," Adrian said. He looked at Peter, at the hints of bruises and all the blood. He had trouble reconciling this fragile-looking kid with the superhuman who's been destroying his business, his daughter's homecoming date with the boy he'd nearly killed. "That's not my deal. My deal is, we both walk away, and neither of us say a word about any of this to Liz. Anything else - we'll cross those bridges as we come to them."

    Swallowing, the boy nodded.

     

    Instead of gift-wrapping the Vulture for Happy to find, Peter lets Mr. Toomes go.

    Summary

    Set one year post movie, Charles overloads himself in Cerebro, and his mind goes walkabout; wherever he is (and he’s around), it’s not in his body. Erik temporarily takes over the school in his absence, and finds that there’s little time for resentment or hatred when he’s busy organizing assigned reading for English lit, keeping the youngest children out of trouble, and trying to talk Raven into wearing clothing for the boys’ sake. Somewhere in between taking responsibility for the students and dreaming Charles’ dreams every night, he manages to remember that he’s something rather more than a weapon. In other words: A Love Story between two Gentlemen, told in Prose, Epistles, and Nonsense Rhymes.

    Summary

    The Alliance to Restore the Republic has faced its crossroads at Hoth, and it has survived. The war, though, is far from over. Blood has been drawn, and the Galactic Civil War has entered its third year...

    Somewhere, in deep space, the Rebel Fleet is recovering from the Battle of Hoth, while the commander of the fleet, Admiral Mitth’raw’nuruodo, plans a campaign that will bring the Galactic Empire to its knees. Meanwhile, a threat beyond compare draws closer and closer in the Unknown Regions...

    In the Core Worlds, Grand Admiral Octavian Grant is given the unenviable task of hunting the traitorous Chiss admiral, and is preparing an offensive that he hopes will put Thrawn on the back foot. But his mission is hamstrung from the beginning by politics and timetables, forcing him to attack before he is prepared to. Even he knows that Thrawn will be ready for him, and both commanders are preparing for the biggest battle of their lifetimes...

    Friendships will be forged and destroyed, lovers will come to one another in the night, the established order will be upended, and men will give their lives and souls to this inferno of war and love.

    This is an unfinished novel.
