    Summary

    The monster in the woods was not always a monster. It used to be something else -- maybe even a man. To the hunter Javert, the only difference that makes is in how he'll have to kill it.

    Summary

    Peter and Elias adopt a fifteen-year-old Martin. It goes as well as you’d expect.

    It sounds like he’s reading from a brochure, Martin thinks fleetingly, vaguely amused. These men – his new parents – do not seem like they know what they are doing.

    “Peter,” Elias says dangerously. “place in the family. Reaffirming.”

    (Taking a last long look at the employee contract in his hand, Martin sighs. “Dad is so going to divorce you for this,” he mumbles and signs the papers with a sense of inevitability.)

    Summary

    When his father said that someone ought to get rid of Nie Mingjue, that he was in their way, that he would never stop, Jin Guangyao’s first thought was about the Song of Clarity that Lan Xichen was teaching him – and the Song of Turmoil, that he’d taught himself. He’d long ago noticed the similarities in the tune between them; it wasn’t enough to fool anyone skilled in music, of course, but Nie Mingjue rather infamously wasn’t.

    His second thought was: let’s wait and see.

    (And then Nie Huaisang got involved...)
