    Summary

    Oscar Pine blinks, draws back by the slightest degree, shows no more surprise than that—and just looks at him, like a ghost out of its grave, twice over, with those filmy hazel eyes, gold and green, which were always too old for his face, too ancient for his voice, which always looked at James like they’d seen him fall a thousand times before. Well, now he has fallen, he wants to say; it sticks in his throat. Are you happy now?

    Or: a conversation that never happened.

    Summary

    “What is that?”

    “Am I to presume you’ve lost your sight as well as your wits?”

    “No, I was only--”

    An exasperated scoff, “Only wasting my time, as well as your own. It’s a child-- a girl, if I need be specific.”

    “May I ask why you are bringing this... child into our home?”

    “You’ve never needed my permission to ask inane questions before." The woman laughs abruptly, but her voice is grave again when she speaks, "No need to make faces, girl. This once, I shall indulge you: No. You may not ask. You will not get any answers from me. Nor, do I suspect, will you find many with her.”

    You wake up in a body that is not your own, in a world you only ever saw through a screen. The threads of the future are in your hands, but there are years yet until the story unfolds... and Flemeth is watching you.

    Summary

    Shaehari- or Shae- is a fighter. She even teaches martial arts at a local gym. When unfortunate circumstances lead to her being shot she wakes up in a familiar game world that shouldn't be real. Another problem is that she wakes up with pointed ears and only speaking elven. To avoid suspicion, she lies. Because who else would know ancient elven but an ancient elf?
