Something called ‘Destiny’
Something was bothering me. Well, something’s been bothering me.
It started way before my visit to the Pole, but returning home now caused me to really think about those concerns.
What really happened to him?
Knowing Pitch, he would’ve made an appearance by now. I doubt that with his personality, he could never linger in the darkness for very long. At first glance, that might be his nature, being the Boogeyman and all, but his actions made it quite obvious, he didn’t like being alone. He didn’t choose to remain in the darkness because he wanted to, it was something that must’ve been forced on him. With no one to believe in you, what could you do?
He said so himself, though not so directly. As soon as he discovered he could be seen, he made a big effort to keep it that way by visiting me often.
Now, I wasn’t getting any visits and it bothered me.
Jack said that Pitch was at

All Those Pretty Lights
Everything felt so quiet, time itself didn’t seem to exist, or maybe it just didn’t matter.
I had my little girl back and that was all that truly mattered to me.
I would never give her up, not ever again.
I let out a soft sigh, feeling content with having her back, though I couldn’t help but feel nervous about losing her to someone like Pitch. He was so close to beating us, who knows how close he’ll get this time around.
Ashe bent slightly as she spoke to Jamie, causing small locks of her brown hair to lay on the side of her face. I watched as she tucked them behind her ear when she tilted her head toward Jack as he spoke to her. Although, between the three of them, Jamie was doing most of the talking.
Yeah, there she was, my little girl. I really should have known better, I shouldn’t have been such a coward.
What kind of Guardian does that anyhow?
I should’ve at least asked Sandy to visit her, t

It was always you
North’s enthusiasm never faltered as he continued the tour. The entire thing felt like my high school orientation all over again. There were so many floors and rooms, even a set of towers on either side of the building overlooking the arctic. Everything had a set purpose and that was only the main building. Over towards the west, just across the bridge Jack had led me on, there was another set of smaller buildings I hadn’t noticed before, though perhaps that was because walls of ice shielded them from my view. Below the bridge, there were even more smaller buildings. They looked like tiny villages which the yetis apparently lived in when they weren’t working in the main building. There was also an underground, a sort of dungeon made out of mostly ice, along with a storage room where he kept his finished work. North went on and on, how everything worked during the “work season” and how it worked when they had time o

Frailties of the Heart
Bunny’s girl? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
I felt myself become frustrated all over again. I whipped around, looking over at Ashe who sat close to Bunny. “H-h-how? Wh-when?” I muttered quickly, eyeing Ashe before turning back to North and Tooth. “You- you said... four years? Right?” I asked with some hesitation, holding my staff tightly, wanting and not wanting to know the answer.
I had been waiting for this, even if Pitch forced me to share her a little earlier than I had planned. I was savoring my moments with Ashe until I was ready to introduce her to the others. I wanted to see how they would react to a teenager that still believed in them.
None of it went as I had hoped.
North and Tooth shot nervous glances at one another, before eyeing Bunny down the hall. He was a good distance away with Ashe and Sandy by his side, completely surrounded by an army of curious elves who were mostly
