Vex puts down the cup, and then notices the letter on the table. “What’s that?”
“Haven’t opened it, but my best guess is that it’s from Father.”
She reaches for the envelope, flips it over, and snorts inelegantly. “Of course it is,” she says dryly. “The wax seal’s got the crest of Syngorn College on it. He hasn’t talked to us in almost ten years – how on earth did he know we were here?”
“My best guess? He heard a pair of twin adventurers blew up a building in the east last week, and figured it was us.”
Explorers-for-hire Vax'ildan and Vex'halia Vessar receive a request to track down an elusive artifact, and find themselves tangled in events more complex than they could imagine.
No prior knowledge of His Dark Materials required; all necessary concepts are explained in the story itself.

W’Kabi stares at the poodle for a little longer. And then the notice. The poodle. The notice.
The bell above the door tinkles as he pushes open the door. Somewhere, he can hear the faint sound of a hairdryer, and there’s a young man with a five o’clock shadow playing Bejeweled at the front desk who looks up as the door opens.
“Hi,” he says, standing up. His nametag proclaims him to be “Scott”. “Welcome to Mission Pawsible. Can I help you?”
W’Kabi stares for a moment. “Uh,” he says. “You’re looking for volunteers?”
In which W'Kabi impulsively decides to volunteer at a pet store, and it turns out to be the best life decision he's ever made.

The space next to her in bed is empty and cold, though it still smells faintly of MJ’s woodsy shampoo. A small post-it sits on the pillow, with MJ’s elegant scrawl written on it in blue ballpoint ink. Had to leave for a breaking story, it says. I’ll text you later for dinner? :)
Or, MJ takes Shuri on a weekend date, and though Shuri doesn't know it yet, it will be one to remember.

T’Challa is pinning his campaign poster onto the board outside the music room when someone clears their throat behind him. He startles, and turns around to see an impeccably-dressed girl standing peering at him from behind pink-rimmed glasses.
“Hi,” she says, not even waiting for him to remove the two pins he’s holding in his mouth. “Nakia. Guess we’re enemies?”
T’Challa blinks at her for a moment, and she raises an eyebrow, glancing pointedly behind him at his campaign poster. He turns to look too, noticing how it’s sagged on its side due to only having one corner pinned before the interruption.
“Ah,” he says, turning back to her and nodding. “T’Challa. That’s me.”
Or, T'Challa and Nakia, through the years.

“Aww,” says Shuri, when she drops in one day for a post-lunch coffee. “Is this the infamous lunch-stealing cat you’ve been grumbling about?”
“She wouldn’t leave,” Erik says, rolling his eyes as he froths the soy milk for her latte.
“Don’t pretend like you would have yelled and chased her out,” she grins. “You big softy. If you hadn’t wanted her to stay you wouldn’t have fed her.”
In which Erik adopts a cat (or maybe the cat adopts Erik?) after it just refuses to leave the shop.

The story of Erik, Pokemon Go addict and hipster barista extraordinaire, and his band of merry
friendscustomers. First work in the series (in midnights; in cups of coffee) introduces everyone, but later works will build upon certain characters and this lovely universe.
Stories in this universe can generally be read alone! But in midnights will help with context. :)

Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.
As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.
Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.
