    Seonghwa has a bird-like balance of soft and sharp features, like part of the island fauna. A dangling earring catches the swing of sunlight on one ear, but not the other.

    Quite pretty, reckons San, dehydrated.

    ---

    Rayne 'Ray' Johnson is many things: a Fighter, a Soldier, but most importantly, a Survivor. She has taken every blow in life with a curl of her lip and a bloody show of teeth, only to get right back up with arms raised, more than ready to dish out what she's received in double.

    But everyone, even someone like her, has a breaking point. And sometimes... It comes in the form of a familiar face.

    Summary

    Dismas had but a coat and a gun to his name, and he knew that wouldn’t last forever. He wasn’t twenty anymore, or even thirty. And he certainly wasn’t as discreet as he’d once been- no, that much was clear. Mortimer was offering quite a bit just for safe passage. The Old Road had always been dangerous, but Dismas wasn’t in much of a position to refuse.

    Summary

    And so it begins.

    He spends days cooped up in his study, emerging feverish, near-manic and pacing. Though they’d taken to sharing a bed for long months now, at nights, he is now a rarer and rarer guest in it. 

    Sleepless, he says offhandedly. But he barely touches Artemy, and Artemy hardly dares touch him, for fear—which he hardly voices to himself, at first—of being pushed away.

    Or: Artemy thinks Daniil is leaving; and tries to make peace with it.

    Summary

    As a girl in South Dakota Joan had spent her summers trying to catch birds. She’d been good at it, too — the hummingbirds wouldn’t come near you but you could sometimes get a wren or a barn swallow if you were fast, and chickadees were fearless, would perch on your fingers and eat out of your hand if you held still. Would settle in your hand, sometimes, if you kept it up for long enough, and unlike the wrens they wouldn’t scare themselves to death doing it. Seventeen years later Joan still remembered the softness of feathers, the tiny fluttering heartbeat against her palm.

    She kept an ear out — couldn’t not — but in the quiet night there was only Inaaya’s heartbeat fast and light, her quick uneven breath, and the trembling too-slight weight of her on Joan’s chest. Through her shirt Joan could feel every rib.

    Joan Kramer has more emotions about the newest addition to the Emporium of Bangkok Antiquities than she has any idea what to do with.

    Summary

    “That’s going to fall,” Dan observed. Phil moved to slide it onto the sofa cushion, and in that moment his attention was diverted Dan had swiftly left the room with heretofore never been seen athletic ability. From somewhere on the floor above, a door banged shut.

    Summary

    Xue Yang’s feet were moving before he’d truly thought it through, but he decided to follow the impulse and amble over to Nie Huaisang. He sat himself down in an elegant sprawl at Nie Huaisang’s table, just close enough to Nie Huaisang to be a little uncomfortable, a little improper, and smiled at him.

    “You look lonely, gongzi,” Xue Yang said, letting his head fall just a bit to the side in a way he knew people found charming when he wasn’t threatening them with sharp objects. “Someone stand you up?”

    Summary

    A ghost told Link a story once. In this story, everyone died on a burning field.

    There were two survivors –– the lovelorn princess and her battered knight, cursed in cruel mercy to a century in purgatory and a memory so shattered and broken that it was impossible to put the shards back where they fit.

    He learned atop the Temple of Time, the dilapidated ruins where his ancestors’ ancestors’ ancestors once stood, that Hyrule had sustained itself on nothing more than stories for ten thousand years. Evil collected underneath the marble floors of Hyrule Castle for centuries. Hyrule had almost unlimited time to find a way to stop it, and yet they waited for two characters out of a fable to save them. Why was anyone surprised when the myth couldn’t sustain itself? Salvation is not the job of two children, regardless of the lofty titles placed over their heads.

    But this isn’t a story about a knight. It’s not a story about a princess. This is a story about the aftermath of stories.

    This is, ostensibly, a story about a dog.

    Link, Zelda, and a never-ending story.

    Summary

    Быть Тэном наверняка было незаконно, но поделать с ним тоже ничего было нельзя — как и с тем, что из-за внимания Тэна Винвин чувствовал себя особенным. Тэн и делал его особенным. Когда Винвин смотрел на Тэна, у него расправлялись плечи.

    Summary

    “Butterflies,” Crowley says, apropos of nothing.

     

    “Butterflies?” Aziraphale repeats with an owlish blink. They’ve been drinking for a solid seven hours now, and have been sitting in comfortable silence for about three. Crowley is currently half-melted into a lazy sprawl of black along the whole length of the Chesterfield.

     

    “Yeah. It’s like butterflies,” he says with a satisfied sort of nod. As if he’s threaded a particularly difficult needle of language. As if he’s found a clever answer to a question.
