    Summary

    She tugged Tony against her body, the baby cradled between them. With her forehead pressed against his, she murmured a blessing. Tony felt like he was four again, going to Mass with his Nonna.

    “If you would save all creation, look beyond each single life. Let those who must fall, fall. Mourn the fading of each dead leaf but do not pause to stop it. Instead, create anew. Create out of ashes and death. Create out of darkness and chaos. That is how existence fought for life. Remake yourself, Anthony. And rise.”

    Summary

    “There’s a boy alone in the woods,” Talia said with a furrowed brow, hanging her coat up by the door.

    “Yes, sister dear, there is,” Peter drawled back from the couch.

    “He seems a little young to be out there by himself,” she continued. “Do you know how long he’s been there? Maybe we should ask if he’s lost.”

    “Considering that this is his third visit this week, and eighth in the last month, I think he can probably find his way home."

    Summary

    Kurama! Kurama, go right to baa-chan! Get to her or I'm going to smack you, believe it!

    “Ha,” Kurama mutters under his breath, and deliberately turns away from the hospital, heading for the market instead. “You're not in the driver’s seat right now, brat. Let’s see how you like it.”

    Kurama! Kurama, don’t you do anything—

    “Sorry, can't hear you,” Kurama says smugly, and drowns out Naruto's voice from his inner world with all the spite of twenty-three years spent watching his host shovel down a truly nauseating amount of ramen each day.

    Summary

    Stiles' hands don't shake when he kills Theo. They're steady as he slits his throat, watching impassively as the blood drains onto the nemeton's stump, soaking into the dry, jagged rings.

    His hands don't shake when he presses them against the blood-soaked stump, murmuring in a dead language he only knows because of the nogitsune. Magic flows from him, charging his words, his blood sacrifice. It seeps into the nemeton, cleansing and healing it, purging decades of misuse and abuse.

    His hands don't shake as they call up the earth, revitalized from the magic he just poured into the nemeton, to swallow up the body he'd kicked to the ground, dragging it deep under the forest floor.

    Before he leaves the clearing, he pulls a bottle of water from his backpack, washing Theo's blood from his hands. They don't shake then either.
