    Summary

    His father scoffed and looked down at him with disgust. “I won’t have a fucking weak-hearted son ruining the family name. Clearly, I’ve let you indulge too much in soft-bellied fantasies and the weak-natured world of women.” Stede’s eyes flicked to his mother who refused to meet his gaze. “No longer.” His father spat at him. “This stops today. You will learn to face your problems on your own. Or you can no longer call yourself my son.”
    And with that Stede’s father spun on his heel and stalked away, his mother following dutifully.
    Stede never did get that hug. And he never would again.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Pretty much exactly what it says on the tin.

    Summary

    “You’re not going to die, you—you dumb fuck,” Ed insisted, and grabbed his shoulders with more care than was probably warranted. He laid Stede down so that he was lying on his back instead, and pressed his hands down hard on the epicenter of the blood. “You’re not allowed, I’m still fucking furious at you.”

    “Acgshhhghhh,” Stede replied.

    Summary

    The circumstances of Ed and Stede's reunion are similar to their first meeting, except for the laudanum, reckless self-sacrifice, and agonizing history between them.

    Not that Stede seems to care about those last two. Probably because of the laudanum.

    Summary

    “Speak to me,” Nandor says, sounding portentous. God, he has a good profile. Just, Guillermo doesn’t know how someone can have a perfect forehead, but Nandor has a perfect forehead. A really good brow bone. “Remind me you are a rational creature.”

    “...I am speaking to you,” Guillermo says. “Actually, I spoke first.”

    ___

    A vampire and a really good baker are chained to a ballroom wall, and they're totally going to die tomorrow.
