    Summary

    It was as if, for the first time, she was seeing the girl as three dimensional. As human. Before she’d only seen a statue, sculpted perfect, pretty, and ready to be displayed to the world. Now she could see the girl the statue was cast from. Marble turned to flesh and blood and skin. For a moment, Judy almost thought she could be described as ethereal, like a goddess stepping down to Earth. But that wasn’t right. She just looked like a girl.

    Summary

    When Hampden College is shut down for the Coronavirus, the six members of its Greek class, against their better wishes, are forced apart and sent home for the rest of the semester. But, as technophobic as they are, Julian isn’t going to let a little virus get in the way of their class.

    The students—normally stuck in the worlds of ancient Athens, Troy, and Sparta—are forced into the twenty-first century and must learn to navigate online learning, Twitter doomscrolling, and quarantine stir-craziness. But at the same time, some of them are hatching a plan, a continuation of a scheme from last semester unbeknownst to Richard, that may change their dynamic forever.

    Summary

    "You don’t really think Bunny was a wastoid, do you?” I said.
    “Hmm?"
    "That’s what some people are saying, right? But he was--there’s so many stories."
    “You’re obtuse,” Judy said. She straightened, then, and I realized she’d only made the shoe excuse to steal a moment alone with me. “I didn’t stop to talk about Bunny.”
    I watched the group shuffle farther away from us, taking all their secrets with them.

    ~~~

    Or, the Greek class students and the events at Hampden College through the eyes of outsiders. Plus some drama.

    Summary

    Just various plot ideas that hit me. That I’ll never go back to. I don’t own anything. Though if anybody wants to write them I would love to read them.

    Please, I would really love some of these done but I just can’t have the time to expand on them. Mostly because I’m not good with multiple chapter works.
