      As the saying goes, diamonds and dynamite come in small packages.
      And though this is a digest-sized gen zine, it's nice and *thick,* filled
      with engaging stories such as:

      "It's Time" by Lorraine Anderson - (Doctor Who) -- River Song knows the
      Doctor has had too many terrible blows in too short a time and he needs a
      time and place to just. be. And to learn what 'family' means. And to
      maybe, finally, admit he really does care. Could another Amelia teach him
      all that?

      "Dead or Alive" by Susan Macdonald - (Magnificent 7) -- Trapped in an ambush
      in the middle of nowhere, Vin and Nate contemplate the 'dead' part of that
      'dead or alive' bounty on them.

      Denethor, Steward of Gondor, endures the final days of his life, the loss of
      Boromir and the fate of Faramir. Can he find reconciliation within himself
      at the end?

      "Apology with Pizza" by Susan Macdonald - (The Avengers) -- Tony Stark
      could, and often did, come off as a jerk. Rarely, if ever, did he apologize
      for it. But this time, he wanted to . And worse yet, he *meant* it.

      "Mardi Gras" by Susan Macdonald - (Beauty and the Beast) -- A costume ball
      allows Catherine to not only have an actual date with Vincent among her
      friends and co-workers, but lets her play Cupid between a new friend and a
      beau who hasn't see her in fifty years. Love is in the air.

      "Happened Before and Again" by Dana Bell - (Stargate: Atlantis / Stargate
      SG-1 / Falling Skies / Battlestar Galactica / Caprica) -- Something -- or
      someone -- inhabits the city of Atlantis. Humans come and go in the city's
      long history; should Atlantis protect its newest inhabitants, or go back to
      sleep for another thousand years to see what a new millennium might bring?

      "Professor Snape" by Susan Macdonald - (Harry Potter) -- Grading papers is a
      great way to get to know one's students, if one *wants* to get to know one's
      students, that is.

      "Those in Darkness" by Susan Macdonald - (Hogan's Heroes / Phineas and Ferb)
      -- Colonel Hogan is asked to help a young prince from a tiny country annexed
      by the Third Reich before this 'inconvenience' is made to 'go away,' but
      Hogan isn't sure he wants to get involved. The one asking is a soldier who
      guards Stalag 13, and wouldn't that be helping the enemy? With pressure
      from both the 'friendly' German soldiers and his own men, Hogan must decide
      -- and then live with the consequences.

      "Riding the Range" by Susan Macdonald - (Magnificent 7) -- Ezra wins at
      poker, even when he doesn't cheat, and JD tells a joke no one laughs at.
      Just another day in Four Corners.

      "Innocents" by Lorraine Anderson - (Stargate: Atlantis) -- A new experience
      for Ronan, fireworks at a July Fourth celebration in a San Francisco park,
      puts Rodney McKay in danger when he gets kidnapped right under Ronan's and
      John Sheppard's noses!

      "Flynn or Eugene?" by Susan Macdonald - (Tangled) -- The king has a
      difficult decision to make. Does he hang Flynn Rider for being a thief, or
      does he knight Eugene Fitzherbert for rescuing his daughter? A decision
      made all the harder, as both men are one and the same person. Heavy is the
      head that wears a crown.

      "The Quest" by Sheila Paulson -- (Lord of the Rings) -- When Pippin visits
      Faramir's new city in ithilien, bringing with him his son, young Faramir

      many times?
