    Summary

    Night Vale may have clouds that rain dead animals, occasional government kidnapping, and non-linear time, but they really don't care who you date.

    Summary

    Sammy didn’t feel it at first, even as the crowd around Grisham gasped. Sammy’s Games were more than a decade ago. They’d long faded away, as horrible as that sounded. But there was a Games that haunted him even more, one that floored him fast and hard, and suddenly he found it difficult to breathe, something like tears blurring in his eyes though they felt too hot, too painful, more like acid than anything else.

    District Five had Victors to choose from. Death had stopped scaring Sammy a long time ago.

    What rattled him to his core was that District Twelve didn’t have Victors to choose from. District Twelve just had the two. Just had Ben Arnold. Ben Arnold and Emily Potter.

    That – that was worse than death. Ben Arnold and Emily Potter back in the Games, after everything they’d been through, and Sammy still alive on the other side. There was nothing worse than that.

    Summary

    “Oh fuck,” Richie moans. “Please don’t let it be a dead body, I will so vomit.”
    But now that he can see it better, the stripe of skin that's peeking out of a sock is too smooth to be human, it reminds more of a—
    "Doll."
    The word leaves his lips with a not small dose of relief. He hooks a finger under the sheet that covers it and, keeping as far away from it as possible, he lifts it up and away.
    There's a boy underneath. Well, it's a doll, Richie wasn't wrong about that, but it looks like a boy, roughly Richie's age. The Uncanny Valley effect is difficult to ignore: the face of the doll is alarmingly realistic, and so are the brown locks of its hair and the proportions of the body. He keeps waiting for it to blink its eyes open.

    Richie waits. It doesn't blink.

    Until one day, it does.

    (Or: Richie is lonely, Eddie is an automaton rotting away in Neibolt House, and the Turtle decides to play matchmaker in a very unorthodox way.)
