    Summary

    Being an account, in pastiche style, of a boy whose story may or may not be the embodiment of the hero’s journey, and who therefore encounters a call to adventure, a wise advisor, a mystical weapon, a road of trials, a rogue, a princess, and a villain (in that order); and who, over the course of fighting an evil empire, finds himself attaining his goals, both symbolic and literal. In space.

    (Victor Hugo writes A New Hope.)

    Summary

    Oikawa Tooru, Japan's representative pretty boy actor, lands the best movie role of his career yet. Shame about who else is acting in it, too.

    Dearest Oikawa,

    I am sorry that you hit me at the party last week. I am confident that your reputation will survive the backlash. Hopefully we will be able to speak on better terms the next time we meet.

    Yours,
    Ushijima Wakatoshi

    Summary

    Devon, 1939. As war with Germany looms, British victory may be in the hands of a small group of radio interceptors and codebreakers at Messina House. Specifically, of two young mathematicians - impoverished aristocrat Stella Beattie and Oxford crossword champion Ben Padova - that is, if they can stop flirting over the intercepts.

    Summary

    “I could make you a king,” Tom said, because like the many spoiled heirs who used to sneer at him in the corridors, muggles were foolish enough to believe that power could be handed over on a platter.

    Summary

    "Potterwatch was legitimized by its dedication to truth, capacity for serious discourse, and avoidance of reverse-propaganda. This separated it from other rebel media, such as the short-lived radio programme Up Voldemort’s Arse which spent several months insisting that Harry Potter was raising an army of dragons in Romania."
