    Summary

    It’s a new year, a new semester. Looking out across the classroom, taking in the bright-eyed students in their winter gear, the crowded desks, the aisles choked with backpacks and bags, Luke can’t help but feel that it’s going to be a good year.

    “Welcome to Transformative Journeys: Pilgrimage and Practice in Global Buddhisms,” he says, with a smile. “I’m Professor Amidala-Lars."

    Summary

    When the ice melts, when the magic comes pouring back into the walls, breathing tremulous life into the castle, reversing the effects of the magical death of the grounds and its occupants, it meets the emptiness inside of her and she collapses.

    (Magic is an organic thing; it lives and breathes and grows at its own rate. It cannot be forced along, can only be nurtured or confined and repressed, and although it grows, although it regenerates, it cannot be manifested suddenly out of the aether. It’s fundamental magical theory, really.

    And it's for that reason Hecate lies, slack-jawed and frightfully pale, in the infirmary for five days before regaining even a whisper of consciousness.)

    Or, the magic at Cackle's takes some time to recover, and Hecate has some personal demons to battle in the meantime. Follows Hecate across the ~6 months after the events of The Big Freeze as she navigates her recovery of both her magic and her way of life - with a great deal of help from her support structure.

    Summary

    She picks up one of the chess pieces and fingers it fondly. “I must admit, I had a bit of a hot head in those days. I believe I told everyone that they probably couldn’t win if they played against me anyway - that the logic was much too complex for them. But if they did dare, I’d go easy on them.”
    “And what happened,” Mildred rests an elbow on the table and leans closer, intrigued.
    “Well, this girl I hardly knew, who never spoke except for in class, but who always got top marks, sat down across the table and informed me that so long as I explained the rules to her, there was no need to go easy.”
    “Miss Hardbroom?!”
    “That’s the one,” says Pippa grinning at the memory.

    ****

    Mildred suffers a heartbreaking loss, but as she grows up she discovers that family comes in all forms.
