    Summary

    Barry had four rules for himself, to keep himself on track and focused on saving the world. No matter how much he wanted to, he couldn't break them, or he risked bringing about the end of everything.

    Rule one: He could not lose control.
    Rule two: He could not give up in his search for Lup.
    Rule three: He could not let Lucretia go through with her plan.
    And finally, probably the hardest one to keep by far,

    Rule four: He could not see his family.

    Attacking a cooking show assistant in the back of a small caravan, Barry blows his last rule out of the goddamn water. And then he keeps breaking it. It might just be worth it though. Even without his memories, Barry could use Taako's help now more than ever.

    Summary

    Standing on his doorstep is a human man Angus doesn’t recognize. He has short grey-brown hair and a round, anxious looking face. His glasses are foggy in the chill of the night and he’s glancing around nervously. From what Angus can see, he doesn’t have a bag or anything with him. All he has are the clothes on his back; a white cotton shirt, a studded leather belt, and a sturdy pair of denim pants.

    “Hello sir,” Angus says through the door. “How can I help you?”

    The man jumps and waves awkwardly. “Uh, hi. I uh, I’m looking for a mister Angus McDonald. The folks at the station told me I’d find him here.”

    Angus perks up and jumps down from his stool, unlatching the door. If this stranger is asking for him by name, that can only mean one thing.

    Angus throws the door open with a wide grin. “Yes sir, that’s me. I’m Angus McDonald, and I’m guessing that you have a case for me.”

    The man blinks down at Angus and says, “Fuck.”

    Summary

    Angus McDonald is having a lot of trouble finding a lead on this missing-people-who-maybe-don't-exist case. He doesn't come across any moon bases or conspiracies or big memory-erasing jellyfish.

    Instead, he comes across an odd lich who seems connected to this case in more ways than he can say. And Angus kind of gets adopted, accidentally? You know. It happens.

    Summary

    The old joke in the necromancy department was that raising a family wasn't all that hard if you buried them close enough together. Barry Bluejeans had always thought it was a dumb joke. At least until the day he committed a death crime and got a son.
