We haven't visited the Secrets and Stones universe much in this series, but we will today. Today's flash fic is set three or four years before all of the other stories in that series thus far.
We're back in the Supers Universe with today's story. "Your Timing Needs Work" takes place about an hour or so after the events of "Not in the Job Description" and "Symbolic Name Fail."
While it is not necessary to have read these particular flash pieces or the series as a whole to understand today's story, having done so will probably make it more enjoyable. Emma and Cameron are two of the main players in the universe as a whole, so long time readers have seen the dynamic between these two in different situations and know why Cameron is beaten to a pulp.
Today's story takes us back to the AI Universe immediately following the events of "Unauthorized Call."
While those who have read the AI series up until this point will have a deeper understanding of what is going on, the flash fiction is written from the point-of-view of a character who doesn't know what is going on. So, no prior knowledge is needed at all to understand the fic.
We're back in the Myth and Science universe today with a story set about four months after the events of "Strange Neighbors."
Those who have read the series will recognize the characters and understand their backstories; however, the story can be understood perfectly well without having read any of the others.
Today's story ventures farther back into the past of the Yekara Universe farther than we have ever gone before. "Before the Fall" is set roughly 30 years before the events of Right of Succession.
Those who have read the novel will notice a few familiar names; however, the story makes sense on its own and does not contain spoilers for the novel.
I did adjust the wording of the last sentence in this dialogue prompt just a bit to fit more with the setting, but the meaning and tone remains the same.
We are back in Little Pearlington in the Icarus Universe today. "The Lesser of Two" is set the evening before "An Awkward Tea Party."
It is not necessary to have read any of the other stories in the universe to understand this one.
We're back in the Supers Universe today with a story set about fifteen minutes after the events of "Off Night."
It does follow the events of "Off Night" and vague references to other stories or characters are made, but the story can be understood on its own.
We're back in the Myth and Science Universe this week with a story set right around the same time as "Return to the Wood."
Reading might be a bit more fun if you have read at least up until that point, but it is not necessary to understand the story.
Today's flash fic is set in the AI Universe a few hours after "A Lesson in Politics." Reading up to that point in the universe will fill you in on perspectives outside those of the characters shown here, but it is not necessary to understanding what is going on.
Today's flash fiction takes us back to the Icarus Universe a few hours after the events of "A Gift Horse."
You should not need to have read any of the other stories to understand this one.
