    Summary

    Hermann gets really red when he’s mad - his ears, his cheeks, his stupid fucking cute nose. Even his neck gets these big red spots on it. It’s funny. It’s really, seriously funny.

    Summary

    “Awesome!” Newt exclaims as he slides into the room after him, letting their shared duffel bag fall to the ground. “I get top bunk.”

    Hermann sputters for a moment before collecting himself. “This is not what I meant when I told them we’d only need the single room.”

    Newt turns to him and shrugs noncommittally before looking up at the bunk bed like it’s the coolest thing he’s seen in years.

    Summary

    It’s stunning, always: a minuscule tilt of Earth, a little movement of air, and any and all probability of coming close to Hermann becomes so improbable Newt can’t trust his own memory. He may have touched him, may have gotten near, now and before in a million little collisions, but it’s always—fleeting.

    Summary

    Sometimes the weight of what they're trying to do, what they're trying to accomplish, weighs too heavily on Hermann's shoulders. He was never meant to be a part of trying to save the world., never cut out for it. So it's a good thing Newt is there for when the times get rough.

    Summary

    You seemed sad in your last message. I couldn’t tell why, so I went digging. Please don’t do the virtual equivalent of hitting me with your cane, okay, but I searched the UK papers and found the obit. Jesus, I’m sorry. I can tell you were close. Opposite of me and Mom.

    Enough with the gut-spilling. Stuff your face and chug that last glass. Elijah won’t mind.

    From my seder to yours,
    Dr. Newton Geiszler
