Summary: In the early 2020s, in a world already filled with turmoil and uncertainty, Homo sapiens variens emerged on the scene. Denoted by their distinctive markings, these telepaths, telekinetics, truthsayers, timewinders and other mutants exhibited powers that seemed straight out of comic books, and had the potential to do both great and terrible things. Unfortunately, they became a universal target for fear and hatred. Fifty years later, mutants are hunted, persecuted across a fractured, post-apocalyptic landscape. A decade ago, the last mutant safe haven in North America was wiped out by the Variant Affairs Commission. Now Jared Padalecki, newly promoted VAC agent, and Jensen Ackles, former mutant freedom fighter, must work together to unravel the mystery of what happened to Haven before VAC exercises a final strike to end mutants for good.

Summary: At the end of all things, Claire Novak finds herself alone, when an unexpected entity offers her a choice—fade away with everything else across all the multiverse, or take a chance to save her sisters and forge new connections with a different version of her family, and maybe restore a future to at least one version of reality. But making the choice to go on will mean giving up everything she has ever known and loved, and traveling through time to a different world, a broken world lost in time, where she doesn’t exist, a teenaged Sam and 21-year-old Dean have been separated for years, and the Thule Society have infiltrated the mysteriously named “Department of Internal Services,” and history is not what she knows. The road will be long, but if she succeeds, Claire has a chance at saving the Alex and Patience she knows. If she fails, all existence will be erased.
