    Summary

    “About that,” Vi says. “How’d you end up here? What did a girl like you do to get tossed into this two-star shithole?”

     

    “Really? That’s how you ask? No subtlety in it?”

     

    “Uh, yeah? I saved you from getting shanked in the shower, so fair’s fair. What’s your deal, topside?”

     

    “Caitlyn,” she says. That isn’t right. That wasn’t the answer Vi was after. Names are easily given away but so seldomly remembered in Stillwater, but it echoes in Vi’s head. She almost doesn’t hear the actual answer. “And though I have no doubt a thousand people have given this answer before, I did nothing. I was doing my job, and then I was here. No trial. No sentencing. No crime to speak of.”

    Half a decade into Vi's stay in Stillwater, a topsider turns up, raving about being a Councillor's daughter.

    Summary

    Eris abruptly returns from Luna desperately seeking the comfort of a trusted touch. Ikora has an idea to help. She also might end up on the receiving end of the affection and affirmation she needs.

    A coda to Confusion lines, but works as a standalone. Context: Eris is very touch-starved but also often touch-repulsed, and she's been working on the latter to alleviate the former. Ikora is very emotionally repressed, but she has been working on being more in touch with her feelings and more open expressing them. The two of them have been together awhile now and have been working through their challenges together.

    Summary

    Caitlyn is a struggling author living in Boston, and she has found sanctuary in an old used bookstore called The Last Page. It would be the perfect place to write if it weren't for one, persistent, thorn in her side in the form of an attractive pink haired employee.

    Vi has worked at her adoptive father's business for a year now, and her favorite workplace activity is teasing a certain gorgeous posh regular. Her, Vander, and Powder are the only ones who work at The Last Page, and there may be more going on behind closed doors than one would expect.

    Summary

    “You’re sweet,” Caitlyn says, then demurely adds over the rim of her cup, purposefully glancing at her through her lashes. “I’ll try not to be a burden on your hospitality.”

    Vi’s resulting grin is charged. She settles back in her seat with a short laugh. “You don’t need to worry about that.”

    Then she winks and Caitlyn wonders if they have any hope of accomplishing anything this evening.
