    Summary

    Doug dies, and four days later a man with a too wide smile and a voice sweet like antifreeze comes to Kate’s door and tells her Goddard fuckin’ Futuristics has selected Anne to be the recipient of their Goddard Futuristics’ Charitable Grant For Children Disabled Due to Addiction that, should they accept it, would pay any and all bills attached to Anne’s injuries, disabilities, and/or trauma from the Drunk Driving Car Accident.

    Kate’s first though is: damn, Doug, you went and sold all your organs or some shit as a stupid apology, didn't you?

    Summary

    and there are some like us,
    just walking, making our feet move ahead of us,
    a little bored, a little lost, a little angry,
    walking as though we were really going somewhere,
    walking as if there was something to see at Adelaide or maybe on King,
    something that will give a fair return for this use of shoe-leather,
    something that will make us smile with a strange new
    happiness, a lost but recovered joy.

    - Raymond Souster, “Yonge Street Saturday Night”

    Summary

    Will I be this way when I’m dead?
    Will I go home and go to bed?
    Will I wake up and wonder,
    Did something happen here?

    Where do monsters come from? Gerard Keay knows, and he can tell anybody who asks.

    Summary

    He'd been back from Afghanistan about two months when the Battle of New York happened. He had heard about Captain America getting pulled out of the ice a week or so before, of course - it had been all over the internet, in all the papers. Sam hadn't really cared, at the time. Too wrapped up in trying to sleep through the night, surrounded by people who loved him but didn't get it. Those were angry days where every hour was a challenge not to scream at his own family for all their petty, safe, day to day living, and Sam had felt pretty much the same about Captain America's revival as he did hearing about the Chitauri invasion, which was basically that he could give a fuck.

    Summary

    There are no nightgowns, underwired or otherwise, in the Borogravian military. Somehow, Ozzer manages to find the next best thing while facing off against Zlobenian cavalry and ends up kicking their captain in the fork while wearing a petticoat.

    It’s close enough. Possibly too close, because when Mal sees her dripping wet from the rain and plastered in sheer white cloth, her brain blanks out and – for a moment – her instincts purr.
