    Summary

    Lysithea can barely keep afloat under the workload of giving undergrad lectures and finishing off her PhD thesis. Meanwhile Dr. Hilda V. Goneril is somehow both the laziest person as well as the most successful young professor she has ever known. It's absolutely aggravating.

    Summary

    “Do you two know each other?” Elena asks, passing Eve a fresh cup of coffee. “You and the new lawyer, I mean.”

    For a second, Eve imagines telling her everything. Saying, remember that night Niko left last year, and I thought we were really done? Well, I went out, got drunk, met her, and we fuc--

    Eve can’t even make her pretend-self confess it all to Elena, not under the stark fluorescent lighting of their office. She can’t come up with a good lie, either -- a whole two seconds after seeing Villanelle again, her brain is still busy numbly cataloguing her every too-fast breath and rushed heartbeat. “Uh, I’m pretty sure we ran into each other at a conference, once?”

    “Oh.” Elena pauses. “I wish I had her jacket. Her outfit is amazing.”

    Eve’s smile would probably be a little less fake if she could entirely convince herself that she’s also thinking about Villanelle’s clothes, and not what’s underneath them.

    But she and Niko are trying, right? So she smiles harder.

    A breakup. A hookup.

    For a year, Eve does her best to forget it all.

    Then chance brings a new hire to the office, and everything gets a lot more complicated.

    And that stubborn random girl might actually agree.

    Summary

    “Hello, Quinn,” Rachel says, pulling her hand back closer to her body and smiling very gently. Quinn tries to force a smile on her face, but it doesn’t come easily.

    “Hi, Rachel,” she says. “How are you?”

    “I’m doing rather well,” Rachel says. “I won a Tony Award recently.”

    “I sent you flowers,” Quinn says, laughing. “I won a Golden Globe.”

    Quinn Fabray has a pretty nice life. And then Rachel Berry shows up, again.

    Summary

    Blake looks at her and swears she can see the particles of the universe settling, can see them laid out and miraculous like a map of fates for gods, can see the stars all spinning at her from underneath a sky that could very well be a dark, murky ocean. The truth is that it's been six years of too much fear and not enough skin. This is the anatomy of breaking down.

    Date me, Yang says, which seems like a great idea at the time.
