    Summary

    grand pause: a symbol used in music that indicates to the musician to rest indefinitely. Exactly how long the rest lasts is up to the musician or the conductor.

    Jaskier walks away from the mountain having lost a witcher and gained a drinking partner, and everything is fine, really.
    Until a curse takes his voice away and the only way to break it is with a good old-fashioned true love's kiss. Easier said - or not, in this case - than done.

    Summary

    “Please don’t do this, Yennefer.” She leans back.

    “Do what?”

    Jaskier swallows hard, bringing one knee up and pressing his forehead to it, his arms wrapped loosely around his leg. His voice, when he finally speaks, is soft, pain clear in his tone.

    “Don’t give me hope.” He tells her, swallowing hard after he says it. “I can’t do it again.” He turns his head to look at her from beneath his fringe. “I spent decades hoping, Yennefer. And it got me fuck all besides the dressing down of my life on top of that fucking mountain and a fun little session of torture later.”

     

    (Jaskier hoped that he could have more with Geralt once, and all it had gotten him was abandoned on a mountain. He won’t make the same mistake twice.)

This year's stories will be exploring helicopter culture and celebrating the helicopters we know and love. But don't worry, many of our other favorite characters from the Planes universe will be popping in to make appearances.

    Summary

    “I know you well enough.” Javert’s voice was an acerbic rasp. “That knife suits you better."
    “Hush. Be still.”
    Valjean's rough fingers were under his chin now, somehow avoiding the rope that sank its teeth deeper into him with every motion, and tilting his head upwards with a surprisingly gentle grip.

    There is always bitterness and spite when Valjean and Javert clash. Sometimes, to Javert's dismay, there is also kindness.

    Summary

    The money he'd stolen from Hydra has almost run out when he finds a black piece of card stock with blocky capital letters stapled to a telephone pole:

    FUNNEL NO. 9

    DO YOU HAVE KNIFE SKILLS?

    WE NEED YOU

    And then below, there's a phone number.

    Knife skills? I have knife skills, he thinks. That part is pretty self-explanatory, though he has no idea what Funnel No. 9 could mean. He doesn't really want to get back into the hitman business, but needs must, and Bucky Barnes is a practical man.
