Intertwining Stories

- Most of my HL stories are connected to the others or are part of a series. ("The Tide that Drags" and "There Goes a Horseman" are stand-alones.) Sometimes the same events show up in more than story, told from a different character's viewpoint. Stories in the Hope Series all have the same image, but with different color borders.
