    Summary

    After years of toiling in the music industry, traveling hundreds of miles across Europe in the process, the successful launch of his solo career is a huge milestone for Luka Couffaine; as the accolades pour in, though, he wonders if the personal cost might be higher than he realized. For without one woman in particular in his life, he finds the rest of it pretty much just one empty achievement after another that comes nowhere near filling the hole in his heart. Suspecting strongly that time is running out, Luka hurries back to Paris to fulfill another obligation altogether – while hoping to have one last chance to make things right.

    Back in Paris, Marinette Dupain-Cheng has it all, finally: her small but agile design studio has gone head-to-head with the best and become a top-tier competitor in its own right. But the one thing she assumed she’d have forever seems to be receding from her reach; as hard as it is to accept, she decides to move on from the man she thought loved her and go it alone. And as Ladybug, Guardian of the Miraculous, she is feeling very, very much alone.

    Summary

    “The only honest art form is laughter, comedy. You can't fake it." - Lenny Bruce
    ---
    “Two failed marriages. I really am the Mad Divorcee of the Upper West Side.” She laughs once, unconvincingly.
    “I could propose and make it a round three,” Lenny offers, playing into her joke with – he hopes – enough humor in his tone.
    ---
    A sort-of sequel to Broken Colour.

    Summary

    “You’re in love with my daughter,” Abe said. It wasn’t a question.

    Lenny flicked the lighter shut and shrugged. “She’s my friend.”

    “You’re in love with my daughter,” he repeated.

    “I’m not trying to marry her, if that’s what you’re worried about,” Lenny took a drag of his cigarette, arms coming around himself like he was exposed and always, always trying to make a joke out of something.

    When Susie collapses during a set, Midge is terrifyingly unshaken. She seems to barely notice, acting as if nothing is wrong despite everyone knowing it is. When she tells her father she plans to do another routine the next night rather than visit Susie in hospital, Abe decides to call a friend.

    Summary

    Luka and Marinette had it all worked out: they'd be friends who slept together sometimes. No one needed to know, especially not his little sister. It was simple, it was fun...
    So why did Marinette have to go and get feelings!
