    Summary

    He proffers the whisky again and this time Childs doesn’t refuse. He shrugs, accepts a glass, and sinks down on the bed, his foreshortened fingers clamped around the tumbler. “You gonna tell me what you dreamed about?”

    “You really want to know?”

    Childs shrugs. There’s a flatness about his eyes, a tension to his shoulders. A tendon in his neck stands out, like he’s bracing himself for what’s coming.

    MacReady swallows. Relishes the burn. “You were one of them,” he says, and Childs doesn’t look up. Just nods as if he’d known. Of course he’d known. Why else would MacReady fight him? What else would MacReady be having nightmares about?

    Summary

    “What on Earth is he doing?” Stanley asked. 

    “It seems he may have, ah... imprinted on me, sir,” said Goodsir sheepishly. Gore was now nuzzling at Goodsir’s neck and ear, his golden hair brushing against Goodsir’s whiskers. He smelled not of death but not of life either; more than anything he smelled of the clean sharp air of King William Land, a scent unknown to Goodsir until just this week past.

    Summary

    A summer by the sea.

    “There are stories, you know, of men coming home and being unable to settle back into what's normal. I feel it, sometimes, like an itch at the top of my spine.” James leans forward, clasps his hands together. “You do not have to say yes, but I believe a change in scenery might do us both good.”

    Summary

    No. No no no no no. It can't be. Human and kaiju genetics are so radically different, nothing communicable could affect him, surely? People all over the world have handled kaiju tissue countless times, and none have reported weird stuff happening to their privates. No. It's just one of those superbugs. Something normal. Human.

    Something brushes against his thigh.

    (or, in which Newt develops kaiju tentacles, and Hannibal is surprisingly into it.)

    Summary

    James was working in the new sketchbook, cadged from one of the Enterprise officers of a similarly artistic bent. His previous lay on the table behind his elbow. Idly, Francis flipped it open. The early pages were all pencil sketches, such as he’d seen James do before; a few charcoals, in the middle, which were getting awfully smudged. Towards the back were the paintings. Here was the Terror, wedged skew-whiff in the ice. Here was an ice shelf in layers of green and blue. Here were the tents out on the shale in their orderly rows. Francis flicked by these, nauseous with memories of all they did not show.

    A splash of vibrant pink was visible on the edge of a page which stuck out a little from the others. Francis turned to it, and stopped still.

    For the terror.exe flash fic fest, from the prompt: Tell us about watercolours, why don't you, James?

    Summary

    “Good. Then it’s a bet.”
    Yennefer’s voice is sticky-sweet in the dim light of Geralt’s bedroom – although Geralt would hardly call it his. Not because the room, and the mansion around it, are just the last in a long line of properties the mage ‘borrowed,’ but because he has yet to spend one second alone in it.
    “Care to shake on it?” Jaskier’s words come out just as low, as he stretches a hand towards Yennefer with defiant eyes.

    ---
    Or, Geralt gets hit by a succubus spell and literally no one cares.

    Summary

    But for a moment the brain’s full complexity is unfurled before him—like Bernini’s St. Theresa, this vision of the brain’s thousand manifestations, transfigurations, iterations pours down around him like shafts of gold: a cathedral, a pudding, a geode hatched open. A chorale of light, of impulse, of blueprints and ecstasies. The holy symmetry of the lobes, their earthen ugliness; by the will of the great animator a thousand cathedrals erected and puddings confected—metaphor is inconsequential in the blinding light of this revelation. Metaphor is language: this transcends.

    But it only lasts a moment. He is used to it by now, these—what else can he call them but visions? It is like his mind’s eye is momentarily deluged with a sight not his own, and his intellect (which he recognizes with conditioned humility is not insubstantial) is left to sort it out. When he was a child he tried to share it with others, he discovered that he not only lacked the language but that others did not experience the same. A capital imagination, his mother had beamed to a friend once. Unnatural, the woman had retorted darkly. He was eight then and never spoke of it again.

    Summary

    “Evening, doctor,” he says as he sits down next to Goodsir on the trunk and reaches across to scratch Fagin behind the ears. Briefly, as though in greeting. Then he begins to stroke the cat firmly along the back of the neck, his hand cupped. The gaunt tabby digs his claws into Goodsir’s belly as he presses ecstatically up into Collins’ soothing palm. His purr deepens, becomes faintly rhythmic.

    “Oh, he likes that,” Goodsir observes awkwardly, not a little jealous of the rangy tom.

    Stephen could tell you that he is practicing a bit of deconstruction, unraveling of the braids of rope as an investigation of how it is put together. He could tell you that seeing how something comes apart tells you everything about how it is put together.
