  1. Summary

    This is how the story goes: The people feared the Dread Wolf for he was very powerful, and he howled with pain and wrath.

    To bind him, the chain called Gleipnir was forged. It is said the dwarves smithed it from lyrium and long-forgotten things, or that the elves had their hand in it, weaving into it their barely-remembered magic, while others say it was the dragonsdaughter's blood and barbed love that gave shape to the chain.

    Which one’s the truth, then? you ask. Oh, that is the beauty of stories: All of them.

  3. Summary

    The Galra are far older than the empire, and once the empire falls, they will remain. That is why the Blade of Marmora has kept a tight-knuckled grip on any knowledge of the old ways; among which are rites so old they don’t even have names any more…

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)

    Summary

    Mississippi has little to recommend it, as far as Joe is concerned, even in this, the year of Nicky's Lord two thousand and nineteen, but it does have this going for it: they find themselves in need of some things at two in the morning and they're able to walk into a Walmart in Corinth and buy them.
