    Summary

    The dream had been a continuation of the last one she'd glimpsed. A young boy with aristocratic features wearing a fancy school uniform. A gun glinting under the fluorescent lights of a classroom. Children screaming and clambering under tables. The bodies of those that weren't fortunate enough to make a quick getaway. Blood blooming across white buttoned shirts and spoiling blue blazers. The alarm bell droning on and on and on in the background.

    She'd watched as a bullet tore the boy's shirt in half. She'd watched as he fell out of his chair and slumped to the ground, as lifeless as all the other children. She'd watched as the gunners left the classroom, triumph visible in every line of their bodies. She'd watched as he jerked back to life, the bullet pushing through his skin and bouncing off his thigh. She'd watched as he stared at the bodies surrounding him. She'd watched as something inside him fractured and broke.

    She hadn't wanted to watch anymore.

    Summary

    Matt Harris. He's just a fairly average guy really. Nobody so much as spared him a second glance, he drifted between the same group of friends and was a basic, ordinary guy. This is, of course, not the case for all aspects of his life. Turns out that the reason he keeps winning out on the breakroom darts championships is because he's got a great aim and his reflexes are absolutely on point.

    This is the kind of thing a lot of companies hire for, and more specifically, the Commission. So, before he can really process what's going on, he's being brought back to the 60's by a woman who claims to have noticed his abilities and is interested in seeing what he has to offer.

    So, he joins the Commission, but in honesty did he really have another option? And it so happens the assassin program is hiring, nobody said a word, and he was the newest consideration. Did he know this? No. Was he going to do it? Not quite willingly.

    Summary

    Time moves differently for different people.
    For Five, ten years in the apocalypse had dragged on forever and yet they had also passed by in a flash. Ever the same, never changing, until the Handler showed up to recruit him.
    For Helena, her time serving the Commission had been dangerous and exciting, and then eventually, mundane and repetitive. Ever the same, never changing, until the Handler brought her a new partner.
    Time moves differently. It placed them both here and now, and they'll move time itself to stay together.

    Summary

    Five and Vanya pretend to be married (for completely legitimate reasons) while fighting off the Commission. Vanya dresses in a variety of period-appropriate clothing, Five mancries on a balcony, and, by the end, everyone in the Commission is more perplexed by their relationship status than the fact that they’d successfully staged a coup.

    Summary

    “Better than the Handler,” Five says, “is a very low bar. But it was really my mistake for trusting you, wasn’t it? For thinking that you would be different. That different is better that dead – but everyone who would ever work here is rotten to the core. I guess you can’t change your nature.”

    “If you think that’s true,” Dot says mildly, “then what does that say about you?”

    Five hoists the gun up and points it at her smile. “Let’s find out, shall we?”

    ...

    Set vaguely after season two. Five finally gets his closure with the Commission.

    Summary

    The 58-year-old man trapped in his 13-year-old body froze in place, eyes glued to the scene in front of him, slowly lowering the gun he was holding. Klaus was on his knees on the asphalt, his green eyes wide open to Five, Handler's hand encased in his brown hair, the gun in his temple.

    The Handler disabled the safety with one click and looked at Five.

    "So, Number Five, what's gonna be? "

     

     


    Or

     

     

    The Handler remembers the smart-ass Five really is on S1 E5 and her plans change.

    Summary

    Spoilers for Season Two

    Dave Katz was supposed to die in Vietnam. He'd never believed the man from the diner until a woman appeared on the battlefield, offering him a job. Now he's been working for the Commission for three years, making corrections to the timeline as outlined by his superiors. He's a little lonely, but at least he's still alive. And his job is surprisingly normal for something so weird. Until the Numbers show up and his life is turned upside down.

    Klaus Hargreeves has had it tough. First he loses the only man he's ever loved. Then he meets and loses him a second time. Oh and let's not forget the timeline changing so drastically that he and his siblings now have weird evil twins out for blood. Klaus is dragged along on Five's crazy mission to once again save the family and avert the apocalypse. While they are safe for the time being, Klaus certainly isn't happy.

    It's when Dave and Klaus see each other across a crowded lunchroom that the pieces begin to fall into place. With dangerous enemies, ghosts, and another world ending event on the line, the strain is palpable. Add in a meddlesome family and the dying flame of a relationship that no longer exists, and anything could happen.
