Summary: In which there are some hurdles to being the only human on a fireteam.
Remarks: Pure unbridled sap, as a gift for some friends. Of course they then swung around and outsapped me by actually drawing a bit of it! Critical hit.

Remarks: A fair while back someone in the Destiny community remarked on how strange it was that the Traveler supposedly watched countless worlds get flushed down the toilet before finally creating the Guardians, who are generally portrayed as having a decent effect against the Darkness. One possible reason kinda stuck with me.

Summary: It's not fun being undead.
Remarks: I wanted this to be longer, but after weeks of wrestling with it I threw a minor tantrum, slashed it down to 500 words...and decided that actually worked pretty well. Sometimes drabbling is the way to go.

Summary: Jaren's back in Palamon after a longer absence than usual, and Shin has a realisation coming.
Remarks: This is still some of the nichest bullshit I have ever written, outside of original stuff knowingly written for an audience of one. At least it's a good step towards the motto of Be The Fandom You Want To See In The World or, in this particular case, Write The Sappy Found Family Formed By A Semi-Immortal Timeless Warrior And A Wide-Eyed Town Kid (Inherently Backdropped By Regretful Knowledge Of The Coming Tragedy) You Want To See In The World. Because Palamon continues have all of about five mentions in canon, I'm continuing to run with the details cobbled together for Paterfamilias.

Summary: Shin had three fathers in his life. Two of them overlapped.
Remarks: I had a hard time pulling the pacing together and it's very talky (surprise surprise) but I think it hit the notes I meant it to.
