  5. Summary

    4 out of 4 comments wanted a sequel, so I'll give in to peer pressure and leave a series open to add more when I have time.

    Summary

    Bruce always thought that Superman's cute shtick of rescuing cats from trees was a bid for publicity—until a confrontation with a magic user leaves him stuck as a cat. He learns how mistaken he was when Superman not only rescues him, but takes him back to a small Metropolis apartment. The opportunity to learn more about the alien can't be ignored, but is Bruce ready for everything he will learn about someone he has only ever regarded with distrust and dislike?

    Summary

    i got so fucking romantic, i apologize- let me light your cigarette
     

    she’s molten inside, he can feel it. the eye is vicious, viscous, a malevolent static in his ears, but he shoves it aside in favor of watching her breathe, draw breath into lungs that aren’t quite lungs anymore. / michael kisses him and it isn’t kissing, not really, not anything you could call kissing if you saw it- / ‘i heard you beat the shit out of leitner,’ annabelle says.

    Summary

    “How do you end up in this line of work without knowing how to throw a punch?!” the ghost says. His head is cocked curiously to the side, and his dark hair drifts in front of his eyes.
    “I am an Archivist!” Jon hisses under his breath. “It wasn’t exactly in the job description!”
    Gerard scowls right back, unimpressed. “And I’m a very particular brand of homeschooled literary snob, but I still know how to break a nose.”
    “You are a GHOST.”
    “Well, at least I know how to get creative! Something you might want to consider learning if you plan to survive any of this, mate.”

     

    (Gerard Keay and Jonathan Sims go Leitner-hunting. No part of it goes according to plan.)

    Summary

    There was the matter of the owner. It could not be said that most people, when asked about their mental picture of what the owner of a bookstore should look like, would answer angry-looking goth covered in burn scars from the neck down. 

    He also had a terrible dye job.

     

    Or: five times Michael went to Gerry's domain for help, and one time the opposite happened.
