    Summary

    Being dumped is nothing new to Clint. Sure, this one was bad, but it's pretty much in line with his life lately. He knows what comes next: drown his sorrows, pick himself up, meet someone new, repeat. Except someone interrupts the "drown his sorrows" step.

    (Set immediately after Hawkeye #10, except that the murder from the last couple of pages never happened.
    See notes for more info.)

    Summary

    I don’t know if you have ever had your torso scraped with a butter knife by your valet. There is not much in the experience to recommend it. Particularly when you suspect said valet is not entirely happy with you, and so wields the implement with more vim than strictly necessarily.

    Or, the tale of how Bertie and Jeeves finally Confessed All to each other, despite – or, possibly, because of – the passion-dampening affects of Giant Squirts, thwarted wrestling, unhappy boating, rabbits (both of the Luminous and Dream varieties), an aunt who breakfasts on the ground bones of nephews who displease her, and a pair of very natty yellow socks.

    Summary

    Elinor remembered the slow drift from humanity to wild animal, like falling asleep listening to music until only the drumbeat remained.

    Summary

    Ling's Motivation: "My competition challenges me to work hard. There are certain players who I constantly play against... [laughs] [eds note: likely referring to fellow All-World player Ben Watkins as the two have met in international competition a staggering fourteen times over the last three years] and I know that if I'm not playing my best game, they're going to blow me by."
