Answers to the meme here: http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/900498.html (Give me the first line of a fic I have not written yet and get a summary, snippet, soundtrack.)
The trouble, Merrion had found, with acting on premonitions was that sometimes you only found yourself in the frying pan instead of the fire. rix_scaedu
The September Story: Merrion learns, though trial and error (mostly error), when he can act to shift premonitions and when he has to let them go.
But on the way, he ends up in hotter water than even he could foresee.
Another snippet: “I knew you were going to say that.” Merrion smirked.
“Then why did you…” The officer shook his head. “Never mind. Sit down and shut up.”
The dragon in the bathtub snorted at her, sending bubbles flying across the room. kelkyag
Aloysia found herself in any number of strange babysitting jobs, but when she found herself babysitting the girl babysitting the baby dragon, things were about to get super strange.
Another quote: “But I don’t know what to…”
“Relax. Junie has the dragon.” Mrs. S managed to make it sound nice and ordinary as a Girl Scout project. Maybe for her, it was. “All you have to do is keep her out of trouble.”

Never Open the First Door
Don’t buy monkey paws from strange stores – don’t buy anything from strange shops – don’t make deals at crossroads, and never open the first door.
Gareth knew all this. But when his kid sister bought the monkey paw from the little antique store on the corner, well, what was he going to do? He couldn’t let her take the fall…
So he took it.
