Shadows You Leftby Taylor Brooke and Jude Sierra

Perfect Rhythmby Jae

Writing Her Inby Holley Trent

Syncopationby Anna Zabo

Thawby Elyse Springer

Correction: In discussing Thaw by Elyse Springer, our host incorrectly identified the asexual character. Abigail, rather than Gabrielle, is asexual; our apologies for the error.
