"Tricksters, magicians will show you all that's real
Careless jugglers, snakecharmers by your trail
Magic of a moment

Parish 1: Buy the Book
"It's a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you'll see I'm right
It's a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light"
—Epica, "Terra Sancta"

"Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm
Come in, she said
I'll give ya shelter from the storm"
— Bob Dylan
This story does have some scenes of self harm and heavily implied child abuse.
It's not graphic, but it is there.
Teri has finally found the help she desperately needs, and Mouser has promised to do all she can to help the lost, little fairy. But even with new friends and the start of a family, it is far from smooth sailing.

Part 3: Arabesque pour une Garrison Chinoise
Shadowing an office-bound employee should be child's play for an AI capable of tapping any electronic device the employee touches. Colombine has two weeks to learn the high-stakes game said employee is playing. How Benjamin plans to cash in his chips and who's looking over his shoulder remain a mystery.
A Whateley Academy Tale
Part 2: Count Zero in Concerto
Just before midnight, January 6, 2017,
Elmendorf Air Force Base
"We are on standby for take-off. The seatbelt light is on. Passengers, please return to your seats if you haven't already."
Benjamin was still dead to the world, and if it weren't for his seatbelt, he would have slid out of his seat by now. Colombine amused herself by sabotaging Kota Kobayakawa's attempts to call out on his phone despite security restrictions. The various numbers he'd tried to reach could be extended into a useful exercise in social network analysis. Once they were clear of the air base and Anchorage, she let him try his luck with the extensive cell coverage in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.
