    Summary

    Vex puts down the cup, and then notices the letter on the table. “What’s that?”

    “Haven’t opened it, but my best guess is that it’s from Father.”

    She reaches for the envelope, flips it over, and snorts inelegantly. “Of course it is,” she says dryly. “The wax seal’s got the crest of Syngorn College on it. He hasn’t talked to us in almost ten years – how on earth did he know we were here?”

    “My best guess? He heard a pair of twin adventurers blew up a building in the east last week, and figured it was us.”

    ~

    Explorers-for-hire Vax'ildan and Vex'halia Vessar receive a request to track down an elusive artifact, and find themselves tangled in events more complex than they could imagine.

    No prior knowledge of His Dark Materials required; all necessary concepts are explained in the story itself.

    Summary

    Grog is traveling though the woods several days south of Whitestone when he finds an abandoned baby tiefling lying in a clearing. Picking her up and comforting her is instinctive. Everything after that is... complicated. He doesn't know what to do with the baby, but he does know that he found her, that she trusts him, and that she's his responsibility, now.

    Summary

    The summer after senior year starts normally enough, with the gang spending their final months before college together at the Martin family's lake house. Then Jackson stumbles onto the burial ground of a witch's ex-husband, Stiles is magically turned into a fox, and things somehow manage to get worse from there. The gratuitous Princess Bride references are only of moderate help.

    Summary

    Stiles' kid has a tendency to get into fights and possibly has bad taste in friends. Or enemies. Stiles isn't sure yet, but he's pretty sure the other kid's dad is too hot to be human.

    Summary

    In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

    Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)
