    Summary

    I could post this to you and you’d get it tomorrow—did you know the mail service here is really, frighteningly efficient?—but I decided on the intimacy of slipping through your motel’s tepid security and pushing this letter under the door myself. This way, you’ll know that my fingers have brushed the grubby carpet in the seam between door and floor; that my feet have lingered on the threshold of your room and will again, whenever you choose to invite them. 

    Love letters and/or hate mail between an ex-assassin and his sometime nemesis, sometime lover.

    Summary

    After a disastrous whaling voyage, Thor decides to seek employment on land. There are few opportunities for a man of his skills, though, and he finds himself living in such dire poverty that he has nearly resigned himself for a return to the sea, when he spies a rather unusual advertisement. The position proves to be of a sort he had never imagined existed.

    As is his new employer.

    Summary

    “And how did you come across a particularly sloppy Renoir reproduction?” Theo can’t help but ask as Boris gestures at the bartender for another two shots and smirks when Theo says reproduction. Even if Boris struck Theo as the art type, a fake Renoir is not the sphere of work that Theo could imagine Boris’ collection to be.

    Boris ticks a thumbnail against the side of his glass pensively. “Friend of friend gave it to me. A gift of sorts. One of my associates suggested I get it looked at by professional.”

    “And you found me,” Theo finishes for him.

    Boris holds his hands out, palms up, and replies, “Small world, no?”

     

    [Or art restoration expert Theo Decker finds himself slowly pulled into the high risk/high reward world of art forgery at the hands of his old classmate, Boris Pavlikovsky.]

    Summary

    Richie took a deep breath. He watched his face in the mirror, watched as his nostrils flared a bit when he breathed in through his nose, watched as his pupils shifted in size as they adjusted to the early morning light of his bathroom. He puffed up his chest, putting his hands on his hips, then let his stance loosen.

    It was officially a month since he left Derry.

    Summary

    He catches a glimpse of himself, bruise-eyed and unshaven, in the bathroom mirror as he turns to leave, and that's when he sees Eddie Kaspbrak.

    "At least wash your hands, you nasty fuck," Eddie says.

    "Holy fucking shit," Richie screams.
     

    Eddie comes back, sort of.
