< Previous Story | ‘Verse Index | Next Story >


There’s a path that winds through night-dark woods, that runs from everywhere and everywhen and ends at the gates of Neverland. Only it’s no more just Neverland than Campana’s just a car– it’s Away, in all its forms, a constant inconsistency of truths.

The children who’ve followed Peter without regrets, throw open the gates with glee. 

But some…

Some stop a heartbeat from those cold iron doors and take a faltering step back into the dark.

So Peter leaves them.

There are worse eternities than living in those woods and someday, if they’re lucky, Wendy will come call them Home.
