    Summary

    It had been five months since he and Clay had arrived, bleeding, broken, to the kingdom of the Pig Nosed Lord, and four months since they’d walked free of the castle.

     

    It was strange, after all this time living on the knife's edge, to be free. But he knew, in the back of his mind, as long as the Mad King knew he was breathing, they could never be free.

     

     

    After escaping the crushing rule of the Mad King, George and Dream have settled into their roles in the Domain of Technoblade, the Pig-Nosed Lord. One spring afternoon, just as the flowers start blooming, news comes in from the fiefdom of the Mad King. Suddenly, they're both staring down the prospect of another long, dangerous journey.

    But they both knew. The Flag of the Pig-Nosed Lord would fly free over the land of the Mad King, and they would be the ones to raise it.

    Or they would die trying.

    Summary

    George’s legs ached.

     

    His lungs felt tight and too small.

     

    His breath was loud in his ears.

     

    His pack bounced uncomfortably on his shoulders.

     

     

    George, homeless and adrift, is an outlaw of the Mad King's reign. He'd spent the last two months being hunted across the wilderness at the fringe of society by a ruthless killer in a smiling mask and bright green coat. This, he understood.

    What he didn't understand is why such a ruthless killer kept letting him go.

    Summary

    The rocket launcher leveled with his forehead until it was all that he could see. Stripes of red and white blocked Techno from view, but Tubbo could imagine his face was just like it was seconds ago, twisted and remorseful.

    For a brief moment Tubbo caught a glimpse of Schlatt’s grin, his goat-like horns stark against the backdrop of sky.

    Then—

     

    “I’m sorry, Tubbo.”

    —————————————————

    Tubbo dies. Then he wakes up. That isn’t exactly out of the ordinary. Except, the respawn magic must have glitched, because he’s now in an entirely different world, with no hope of seeing a familiar face.

    /-/

    Dream honestly hadn’t planned on adopting this random kid while there was a manhunt for his head on a silver platter. No, really.

    Summary

    It's Sarah Wilson who found him on the couch in the morning after their long weekend boat-fixing getaway.

    He was grinning like a loon with his arms stretched out behind his head, happier than he’s been in… well way too long.

    She watched him, leaning against the wall with her hip cocked out and a small considering smile on her face.

    “Now I know you didn’t spend all night out here,” she said.

    Bucky moved slowly into a sitting position. “Oh,” he said innocently, very proud of the way his voice didn’t crack. “Where would I have slept?”

    She snorted. “Please, my brother thinks he’s slick but he’s not. And you aren’t either. You’re just lucky my sons sleep on the second floor so they couldn’t hear you. I was not so lucky.”

    (Or Sam and Bucky's eventful night at the Wilson residence, and of course the morning after.)

    Summary

    “I knew it,” Sherlock says breathlessly, hand shaking as he smoothes the rough pad of his thumb across the small, tidy imprint of ‘Sherlock Holmes’ set neatly into the pale skin of William’s wrist.
