    Summary

    Taako and Kravitz fell in love fast after the Crystal Kingdom, but perhaps it was a bit more complicated than that. When the Story and Song unfurled through the planes, Kravitz remembered his own impossible past. The strange, beautiful realm that spread across the expanse of an asteroid belt. He remembered Taako, and how they’d fallen in love there, too, but it was soft, slow, and in secret.

    It was the 71st cycle of the Stolen Century. The Starblaster crash landed on one of the asteroids of this plane, and the Light of Creation fell far away and out of sight. They must find it before it slips into the wrong hands, before Taako falls too far in love to back out, before the Hunger arrives to destroy them all.

    Summary

    “Magnus Burnsides,” he says, “I think I might be your kid’s new coach?”

    Oh.

    Taako reluctantly takes the hand in front of him and gives it one up-and-down shake before letting go and tucking his hand into his armpit. “Oh, he’s not my kid.”

    Summary

    "Lup’s heart hammered in her chest as she looked down at the dagger.

    She had come so close to dying. So close to burning her body on this last cycle.

    She breathed a sigh of relief and gathered herself before quickly leaving Wave Echo Cave. The gauntlet was safe now. No one could possibly find it and she would be able to sleep at nights now."

    Lup does not die in Wave Echo Cave. Unfortunately, Lucretia's plan still goes into action. A chance meeting in an inn changes the story. A chance meeting brings people together much sooner.

    Summary

    Summary

    Barry knew Lup would absolutely adore Angus, and he ached thinking about how much she would love the domesticity of it all, taking care of just the best kid in the world. It was sad to think he’d finally gotten some piece of that domestic life, and none of it was how it was supposed to be. He and Lup weren’t raising a kid together in a nice home with all of their friends around to help out. Taako was supposed to be the cool uncle who was a bad influence and Magnus was supposed to balance him out by being an excellent influence. Davenport was supposed to teach him important life lessons and Merle was supposed to balance that out by teaching him terrible life lessons.
    Instead of that beautiful fantasy, Barry was in a cave he had haphazardly turned into a home, half-raising a kid who wasn't his to raise, all by himself.
    And yet, he was grateful to be able to do it.

     

    The one where Barry pseudo-adopts Angus before he's recruited into the Bureau.

    Summary

    Barry doesn't feel pain in this form. Or, he shouldn't. He doesn't have glands, or a brain, in the typical sense, and he definitely doesn't have a heart. Despite all of that, what he's feeling can only be described as heartbreak.
    Lup's gone. His family doesn't remember him, except Lucretia, and she... Well. They're not on speaking terms. And he doesn't even have legs. How can a single malfunctioning robot save the world?
    Of course, none of that means he's giving up. It just means he's got to get creative.

    Summary

    It was supposed to be like all the rest of their missions. Go in, get the relic, go back to the Bureau of Balance tomorrow with minor injuries. Well, the relic was a false tip but they did go back to the Bureau at least! Albeit, with an injury worse than they've had to deal with so far. (Basically, Taako gets hurt unexpectedly and the Dos Horny Boys (ft. Bone Daddy) are here to help).

    Summary

    As it turns out, one of the Starblaster crew isn't quite as altruistic or optimistic as the other 6.

    The Hunger gets a new member.

    "I’m sorry, but I’ve been living a hundred years with me and one year with millions of people, interchangeable! I guess I just got to a point where… I was the one that I could focus on, because everybody else that I ever met, aside from the six of you, were dust. They were just talking dust, okay? So I started worrying a lot more about me, because what was the fuckin’ point."

    Summary

    As the Starblaster crew settle into the routine of each cycle, they have a lot of questions to answer about the situation they find themselves in. A quarter of the way through their journey, events conspire to eventually answer an important one (its almost completely irrelevant actually)

    The crew of the IPRE have lost their entire world. They must figure out how to adapt to their new mission-- stopping the plane-consuming mass that swallowed their world and every one they've visited since.

    This is no life for a child, and Taako never wanted his baby to grow up like this. But at least they have their family around to help.

    Summary

    "Mavis stared out the window of Merle's hippie VW van and popped another lemon Skittle into her mouth, chewing pensively. Beside her, Mookie's voice chattered on and on, asking about what they would find in their new home. Merle occasionally answered noncommittally but mostly drove along content to let Mookie ramble.

    New home—that's something Mavis hadn't been expecting when she got up this morning."

    While their mom's sick at the hospital and they're being shunted between relatives who don't want them, Mavis and Mookie are surprised by Merle showing up and taking them to a home in the country. Together, they rediscover how to be around each other, how to be a family. And if they discover a little magic along the way? Well, the kids aren't complaining.

    Basically, this is a retelling of Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro in which Mavis is Satsuki, Mookie is Mei, and Merle is their dad (obviously). Other characters to be revealed as the story goes. ;) Technically, this is part of a series, but they're only connected thematically, and this can be read on its own.

    Summary

    Barry has known Lup and Taako since kindergarten. He knows how they can be when they want something. Lup wants nothing more than to protect her brother, and Taako- well, let's just say that he's come to the conclusion that Kravitz and Barry are a bad influence on his sister.

    Maybe he's right. But those anomalies aren't going to kill themselves, and someone has to keep the existence of monsters under the wraps.

    Currently undergoing some edits! Please forgive tense inconsistencies.
