    Summary

    Nothing in Angus' life made any sense. He could barely remember anything before the orphanage, he always felt uncomfortable, like there was something wrong with him. He left to figure out what, and when he get's to Glamour Springs he learns something which both makes everything make more sense and even more confusing.

    or

    Angus is the 8th bird in stolen century and Lucretia's plan made him forget something vital to himself.

    Summary

    Lucretia has died more times than she's willing to admit, but she's got a handy secret about that so it doesn't matter so much.

    Summary

    Taako looks down to find the kid already asleep, nose squished up against Taako’s shirt. He’s breathing softly through his mouth like a fish, which somehow manages to be adorable. Disgusting.

    “Some apprentice you are, dipping out right when I need you,” Taako mutters, but his chest is swelling with a weird, not-quite-painful-but-definitely-unnatural feeling. It’s like pressure, or weight, but it makes him feel light. It’s the same feeling he got the first time Angus executed a flawless Mage Hand. Not pride, not fondness, but not...not those things. Something more complicated.

    He doesn’t want to analyze it, so he doesn’t. Instead, he slouches into a more comfortable position, wrapping his arms tighter around Angus so the boy detective doesn’t slide off his lap.

    --

    Taako works through his trauma/emotional constipation and tries to deal with his newfound parental feelings towards Angus.

    Companion to Repression is a slippery slope that leads to emotions. Hopefully this works as a standalone, but I would still strongly recommend reading that one first.

    Summary

    "He walks into the cafeteria, nose buried in his book, carefully stepping around things he could trip over. He's been at the BoB long enough to know how to navigate without looking at this point, but when he does look up, nothing he sees is what he expects.
         What Angus McDonald expects to see is Bureau employees sitting at tables, chatting idly, enjoying meals, and such.
         What he doesn’t expect to see is distressed and crying staff members, curled over in the fetal position, and one, Magnus Burnsides, hero of folk legend, recoverer of many a grand relic, drinking something out of his boot."

    or, Angus McDonald deserves all the love so I've decided to give it to him. Basically just one-shots about everyone's favorite boy detective, taking place during and after canon, in no particular order.

    Summary

    After two years, College freshman Barry Bluejeans returns to fencing to try and get in shape. He doesn't expect to become the chauffeur for the Starblaster high school team, to get roped into not-technically-larping, or help this kid study for his Bar Mitzvah. He certainly didn't expect to find a community--or to fall in love.

    Meanwhile, Taako is pining for a hot dancer boy, Lup is planning her escape, Magnus is helping overthrow the student council at a school he doesn't even go to, Mavis is fighting with her father, Angus is desperate for a mystery to solve, and Lucretia--well, it's hard to know exactly what's going on with Lucretia.

    It's a TAZ High School-ish Fencing AU! There's a lot going on.

    Summary

    I rewrote an older story of mine, but it's sadder than last time.

    Angus stared at the seven flowers, trying not to break. He swallowed around the lump in his throat, before falling onto his knees as tears rolled off his cheeks.

    Summary

    She can see how he hones in on that, can almost picture the mental note he just made in his head. All she can do is smile softly as they lapse into easy silence.

    Lucretia is certain Angus will figure her out. It’s only a matter of time. But he’s smart, and resourceful, and useful, and although she’s not sure of the details she knows whatever home he had planetside isn’t good enough for him. So what else can she do but keep him close.

    Summary

    About a month after the day of Story and Song, Lucretia sends word to Bureau of Balance members- the bracers are no longer necessary. She asked members to return either to her or to Avi to have them removed, but one member would rather keep his on. Just in case.

     

    Angus McDonald, boy detective, knew better than to get rid of a way home.

    Summary

    Angus was a very smart boy, but perhaps sneaking onto a plane hopping spaceship wasn’t his smartest decision. Now he’s stuck away from his home plane, on a spaceship he’s not supposed to be on, and with a group of people he doesn’t know and who don’t know him. But that’s the least of their worries when the force they will come to call The Hunger finds them again and again and again.

    Summary

    "We did it, sir," Angus whispers as he reaches the couch. He still can't quite get his brain to move past that. Fully processing the day's events is going to take time and probably several cork boards worth of notes connected by red yarn.

    Taako's mouth twitches upward in a tired smile. "We sure did, mijo." Fuzzily, Angus wonders what the word means, but he's too tired to devote much thought to it. Besides, it's barely a flicker in comparison to all the other new information he's received today.

    --

    5 times Angus wonders about Taako's new nickname for him + 1 time he finds out what it means.

    Summary

    No one actually knows for certain.

    A curious young boy in search of family. A memory stripping curse. A bounty hunter who's not sure what he's searching for. Secrets. Maybe a pirate or two.

    The sort of story that ryhmes but doesn't echo. Let's see what happens together.

    Summary

    Nobody realizes it until Angus puts the pieces together, the way he is often want to do. It seems like something the rest of them should have picked up on but really it's not so surprising. Everyone is busy with the reconstruction so declined invitations are forgiven and forgotten. It's not until Angus finds the lingering clues that what should be glaringly obvious truly comes to light.

    Summary

    This world, like a thousand others, has ended and begun already. Just because the universe was saved doesn't mean that scars don't scar or stains don't stain.

    Each and every survivor knows this empty feeling, of guilt, mourning, regret, of feeling like you've been so tainted that your soul couldn't be cleansed by even the darkest of magics.

    Lucretia knows this feeling better than anyone.

    Summary
