  1. Summary

    What the American male really wants is two things: he wants to be blown by a stranger while reading a newspaper and he wants to be fucked by his buddy when he's drunk. Everything else is society.

    - W. H. Auden, The Table-Talk of W. H. Auden, Alan Ansen, 1990, pp. 80-81

    Or, Napoleon Solo begins to know himself, and Ilya Kuryakin makes his own happiness.

  3. Summary

    A take on the Alpha/Beta/Omega trope. In which I made up Germanic-root words for the A/O genders because Greek roots were linguistically implausible, the A/O genders are nominally hermaphroditic, and Steve and Bucky are both fitts, which is still illegal pre-WWII.

    Currently, the pieces can be read in any order (or not read); they're part of a continuity, not a chronological series.

  5. Summary

    Post-Sburb by a number of years, with diplomatic connections well-established between Alternia and Earth, the trolls and the kids try to live their lives.

    This seems to involve a lot of dressing up in suits on the parts of certain individuals. Mostly related to how Rose and Kanaya are finally getting married.

    (And sometimes it involves some discussions about Dave and Tavros's troll wigglers, and how growing up Earthborn makes them neither trolls nor human. But not yet.)

    Summary

    “What does God want from us?” Nicolo asks.

    Yusuf lays down beside him. They stare up at the clear night sky. “I layed siege to Antioch, once,” Yusuf says. “Now you do. The stars are the same. If God cared, he would change them.”

    “You think God does not care what we do?”

    “God created this world,” Yusuf says, gesturing up to the stars. “It is beautiful. I do not need more from him.”

    Summary

    Lan Xichen closes his eyes and holds the rules in his chest. He is a pond, slow-moving and lined with cattails, bending around rocks and honoring dams. He knows a limit of grass and beach and stone, knows how far he can lap over their edges. He does not dry up, he does not flood. He takes rain and spills, branches, gravel--he glints sunlight at his surface, and pulls ugly things down below the coating of his silt.

    //

    A study of Lan Xichen's year in seclusion.
