    Summary

    “He’s a fuck up. He’s known it his whole life. His older brother was the golden child, shining as bright as Sol, so he had no choice but to live in the shadows. This is the lot of life he was allowed, so he might as well be the best goddamn fuck up ever.  He’s nothing if not dedicated to a cause.”

    Or, the life and times of Jawbone.

    Summary

    Fig is simply amazing. She’s loud for one, playing that bass guitar at such a volume that Ayda’s bones feel it. It’s a new and exhilarating thing to her. Fig just seems to exist differently. She understands confusing social cues with ease and sends some of her own, she both casts spells and uses them in some of the most creative ways Ayda’s ever seen, and she’s drop dead gorgeous. Compared to Ayda and her cooped up studying, Fig is in a world of her own.

    (Inspired by She Plays Bass by beabadoobee)

    Summary

    It's 1920 and Adaine Abernant and Fabian Aramais Seacaster have experienced success in running their speakeasy, the Bad Kids. Popular musical duo Figueroth Faeth and Gorgug Thistlespring perform there almost every night and the bartender, Kristen Applebees serves drinks so good they say they restore your HP. A favorite costumer takes the form of goblin PI, Riz Gukgak.

    One night, Riz comes with a new case that seems to be linked with the speakeasy's supply chain problem. As more information is unearthed, the case grows in size and soon the gang realizes this might be a fight for the whole city, not just the speakeasy.

    Summary

    Aelwyn Abernant is not okay.
    Most people wouldn't be after everything she's gone through- years of child abuse, months of torture, and being stuck under the thumb of an evil cat and her own parents. But she's getting through it the best she can. And if the best she can do is drink too much and stay out too late and try and numb the pain, then isn't that good enough?

    No, it isn't. After a night out filled with dancing and gorgeous DJs and private detectives named Riz Gukgak and actually feeling something again, Aelwyn knows that something is wrong. Luckily for her, school is starting back up, and she happens to be the ward of the best guidance counselor in Elmville, who would be happy to help Aelwyn get her diploma so she can go off to University.

    But for some reason, the Bad Kids can never seem to get through a year without a mystery to solve and a mission to complete. And for some reason, Aelwyn can never seem to get away from the Bad Kids.

    Aelwyn Abernant is not okay.
    But hopefully, someday, she will be.

    Summary

    “Try not to die on the first day of school Riz”, she said and there was sincerity in her voice.
    As sad as it sounded, however, mean she was, Aelwyn Abernant was the closest thing he had for a friend the last few years. They were just two teenagers, not so subtly manipulated by forces beyond their control. It helped to be honest and open with someone, even if that someone was a stuck up, rich, high elf.
    Riz would have still killed her if Kalina ordered him to, but he’d like to think that he’d hesitate a bit.
    ~
    or, a freshman year's retelling, where Riz is balancing being Kalina's spy, working towards bringing an evil dragon back to power and being tasked protecting a bunch of idiots who can't jump over tables. Somehow, the power of friendship is involved?

    Summary

    (of a coward that you and i both hate very much)

    "But things are harder, after. Things are much harder. The Shadow Cat makes things even more awful, and the forest is so much worse, for all Baron (what’s the point, now, of trying to say Baron’s not real, of course Baron’s real, despite all his token protests that even Baron can tell hold no weight) can’t touch him. She more than makes up for it; it’s like all the things he does with his brain suddenly causing actual damage. Fun! So fun. Much harder, much worse."

    Summary

    The gravestones are lit up by slants of the setting sun, catching on the old etchings of names and lives. Aelwyn shifts the basket in her hands so that she can trail a finger over the tops of them, catching on the crumbling stone and dragging.

    “Does that feel nice?” Kristen asks.

    “Does what?”

    “Loving death?”

    “I’m just touching the graves.”

    “You don’t ‘just’ do anything.”

    Underneath an oak tree, Aelwyn Abernant finds faith, a friend, and a new way to grow.
