  4. Summary

    From Love’s Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley

    The fountains mingle with the river
    And the rivers with the ocean,
    The winds of heaven mix forever
    With a sweet emotion;
    Nothing in the world is single,
    All things by a law divine
    In one another’s being mingled –
    Why not I with thine.

    Summary

    "Midway along the journey of our life I woke to
    find myself in a dark wood, for I had
    wandered off from the straight path."

    Dante. The Divine Comedy: Inferno.
    Canto I, l 1-3

    As Spring dawns in Oxford, Robert Lewis teeters on the brink of New Life; respected retirement, new relationship, the prospect of seeing his children and protege set out on paths of their own.

    But his nights are spent among the dead, in a prison whose secrets are so long buried all joy, hate, grief and secrets are crumbled to dust.

    Set at Easter 2014, some months after Season 7.

    Summary

    A series of stories set in a crossover MCU/Lewis universe. Things a prospective reader should know:

    1. Darcy Lewis and Robbie Lewis are cousins in this here pocket universe. Distant cousins, but family nonetheless.
    2. Darcy Lewis is a BAMF.
    3. Robbie Lewis is the best of men.
    4. The author adores James Hathaway nearly as much as James Hathaway loves Robbie Lewis. So, like, A LOT.
    5. Series will have a variety of ratings, pairings, relationships and hopefully a healthy dose of humor to go with the angst they're all usually swimming in. Perhaps those cardboard coffee rings can double as life preservers?

    Set after Thor: The Dark World and the events of the Convergence. Will incorporate canon elements from both MCU and Lewis as the author can shoehorn them in.

    Summary

    ‘Or I can punish you myself. Off the record. Without destroying your career.’

    Set after Life Born of Fire, so spoilers for that episode, and the story makes more sense if you’ve seen it.
