    Summary

    Billy's used to being afraid of his father, and he knows he's not the only one scared. But it's one thing to know your stepmother gets smacked around every once in a while and another thing completely to find her body on the bathroom floor.

    He's a mess, Max is even more of a mess, and Joyce Byers is a queen among mothers, she really is.

    Summary

    This is the story of how Kraglin Obfonteri - a strangely quiet and cold young man - eventually became a part of Yondu Udonta's crew, his right-hand man, and most loyal crew-mate.

    This also the story of how it almost never happened at all. The story about how Kraglin's mask fell, and how Yondu almost cost himself one of the best things to happen to him.

    Summary

    This was why Hobbits did not leave the shelter of the Shire. The world outside was a Dark place where you would only starve and starve until you broke, until it would be all that remained, like in the Wandering Days, like in the Dark Days.

    Summary

    "When two souls, which have sought each other for, however long in the throng, have finally found each other …a union, fiery and pure as they themselves are… begins on earth and continues forever in heaven." -Victor Hugo  

    It is like this: when a matched pair meet, it is usually not long before the first Touch and then the Words. There is always a stirring under the skin to reach out because humans were never designed to live in isolation. There is a pull that never wavers, quiet and calm under the surface. Denying it only makes it stronger and causes chance meetings again and again until they Touch.

    It is like this: even Valjean thinks the number times they have met by sheer coincidence is ridiculous and Javert is frankly sick of it.
