  1. Summary

    And this is good old Boston
    The home of the bean and the cod
    Where the Lowells talk only to Cabots,
    And the Cabots talk only to God.
    -- John Collins Bossidy

    This city - filled with "courage, compassion, and strength that knows no bounds" - isn't their home, but it becomes a safe haven anyway. [Favorite characters in Boston.]

    Summary

    At the age of 6, Henry Tudor and his family are exiled from England by the triumphant return of the so-called Richard of Shrewsbury. Forced to seek a life and support abroad, the Tudor family is thrust about the globe as they attempt to reclaim their birthright. When Henry chances to meet Anne Boleyn at the French court, however, his life is turned topsy turvy as duty, honor, and the fate of England duel with love, desire, and passion.

    Summary

    They’re definitely not dating when there is a presidential dinner and they don’t think to invite dates. Instead, they assume they’ll go with each other. Him in a black tux, her in a red dress. Their arms are interlocked as they enter the ballroom, and Donna even goads Josh into dancing with her. It’s friendly, nothing more.

    They’re just having sex. That’s it.

    Summary

    For someone whose job requires an unusually large amount of personal risk on a near daily basis, Amy Santiago has not dedicated much time considering how she might one day die. The vague assumption that it will probably happen on the job - via stray bullets or careening cars or massive explosions - has been enough to satisfy any musing.

    She never imagined doctor's visits or specialist consultations or diagnoses. She never imagined hospital gowns and thinning hair and chemotherapy.

    And she never, ever imagined cancer.

    Summary

    Something happened half an hour ago. He’s not entirely sure what - hasn’t tried sussing it out beyond the initial bombardment - all he really knows is that he was home, on his couch, content with his Jurassic Park with limited commercial interruptions, and then it felt like the whole earth was falling to pieces and he knew.

    So maybe he is sure about what happened - she’d mentioned as she left the precinct earlier that she had dinner plans with Teddy tonight. And it’s odd, how beyond his immediate concern for her, he feels his own undeniable sense of hope rising. His soulmate - who doesn’t know she’s his soulmate - is single once again.

     

    Finally.

    Summary

    All the Crawley girls have soulmarks. You'd think that would make things easier.

     

    “You,” she says, and her voice is breathless and quiet. They are alone, there is no one to say a word but her, and Branson's eyes are burning in his face.
