  1. Summary

    Change may be the only constant in a city like New York, but one can argue there are acceptable limits over the course of a day. Myka Bering, a relative newbie, had no idea just how quickly her life could go from sorted to gutted.

    When Myka loses everything in a tragic fire, she takes refuge at a nearby hotel offering room and board to catastrophe's victims. Helena Wells, a bartender at the hotel, instinctively takes Myka under her wing. Though a complete stranger, Myka feels compelled to eventually accept Helena’s offer to stay with her and her daughter until she finds a new place to live. As the weeks pass they get to know each other and grow closer, but just how close?

    Summary

    Alex’s life has somehow become like that comic Winn showed her once, where the house was on fire but everything was fine, because somewhere along the way, between her sister leaving and the city descending into chaos in the absence of its hero, she and Lena had become the sort of friends who fucked in the darkness and didn’t talk about it.

    or

    the one where alex and lena spiral mutually downward and surprise themselves by colliding with each other instead of rock bottom.

    Summary

    Claudius’ whisper carries over to her. “A nun, my Lord? Do you want to send us to the fiery pits of hell?!”
    She pretends not to listen as they walk away.
    “She’s not yet a nun,” Sir George points out.
    Claudius gives him a stern look. “She belongs to God.”
    “Good,” Sir George replies. “You keep telling me that I should get closer to God, don’t you?”

    Summary

    Because I am pretty sure we have not had deskclerk!Myka and businesstraveler!HG, and I was feeling all holiday-happy (though this is not holiday-related): here is that kind of sweet thing. Ugh, these two are the cutest and sweetest--and I hope I have done them some justice here.
