  2. Summary

    By the beginning of the 1920s, almost fifty million people have died on the battlefield and in the hospital. Death is a part of every day life, and ghosts saturate the earth beneath the feet of the living, but they don't always stay put. Like the Fisher King's wound, they never heal.

    In steps the Preternatural Investigation Agency, home to the most preeminent supernatural investigators of their time, Taako and Kravitz. With a lot of help from everyone's favorite kid detective and the family we all wish we had, they put a stop to those trying to bring up old wounds and lay some ghosts to rest.

  3. Summary

    Seven members of the IPRE still board the Starblaster, still spend one hundred years searching for a way to save every world they've ever set foot on, it's just... not quite what you remember hearing.

    (There's a certain not-so-grim and not-currently reaper in charge of necromancy on the ship, and he's very handsome, and very awkward, and Taako's very into it, too much to actually say anything in fact, but it's alright; they've all got time.)

  5. Summary

    The weight of the world
    is love.
    Under the burden
    of solitude,
    under the burden
    of dissatisfaction

    the weight,
    the weight we carry
    is love.

    —Allen Ginsberg, "Song"

    there's nothing quite like watching a show four years too late and immediately shipping two characters, assuming that there will be absolutely no fic, and then being pleasantly surprised by the eight whole works anyway this made me cry! maybe! a little!

    truly the only ending i will accept from this show is them all being gay and rerealizing their destiny of being a gay bar

    Summary

    Carlos's reaction to the first date involves a lot more anguished cries than Cecil's, though to be fair, they're only anguished cries of "Why did I do that, why did I say that, why am I allowed to interact with other people" so they're still better than at least eighty percent of Night Vale's late night wails.

    (also i would absolutely read a whole fic of just neighbor harriet trying to take care of crowley tbh)

    Summary

    Kravitz knows Taako is a very capable person. Kravitz knows Taako is a very powerful wizard. Kravitz knows Taako is the most powerful transmutation wizard in this, or any, planar system. Kravitz is... frequently, and in increasingly outlandish ways, surprised and impressed by the scope of power his boyfriend hides behind a layer of glitter and charm.

    Or, five times Kravitz is kinda taken aback by how ridiculously powerful of a spellcaster Taako is, and one time he learns to expect it.
