    Summary

    When Jo arrives in Portia, she’s not sure what to expect. Despite her confident nature, Jo isn’t completely sure how to live out the life her father has left for her. But along the way she meets Arlo, the Captain of the Civil Corps - and their draw to each other is instant. However, both just pin each other as merely a friend and "nothing more." And yet, they continue to fall into situations that suggest otherwise.

    Who's Gonna Take You Home largely focuses on a relationship between two friends who find themselves constantly dancing around one another. However, it's also a story dedicated to Jo's journey as she finds her place in her new life and how that changes her and those around her.

    Summary

    Wren left a broken life in Barnarock behind when she moved into her father's workshop in Portia. At first, she settled nicely and could preoccupy her encroaching loneliness and homesickness by developing friendships and gorging herself on work to keep pace with settled builders in the area. A dreamer at heart, she came to find something more than a career, but finds herself romantically uninterested with the singles in town. When a new stranger arrives, a pull between the two sends each of them on a journey to share tragedies, experiences, and more.

    Summary

    Builder Liz has spent her first couple of seasons in Portia doing what every new Builder does: gathering materials, completing commissions, expanding her work yard, assembling relics, occasionally helping the Civil Corps... And she's even made some friends along the way.

    Liz can't exactly explain what it is about Gust she likes so much, but they've grown close in a way that can only be rivaled by her friendship with the Captain of Portia's Civil Corps: Arlo. Unlike Gust, however, Arlo has been actively pursuing his friendship with Portia's newest Builder for quite some time. Will Gust ever work up the courage to tell Liz how he feels? Or will everyone's favorite Captain sweep her off her feet right out from under Gust's nose?

    And if he does...then what?
