    Summary

    Frowning, Bruce feels Tim’s forehead and cheek with the back of his hand. “You’re feverish.”

    “I think I’m allergic to Alfred’s new detergent,” Tim says, scratching, scratching, scratching.

    Unconvinced, Bruce takes Tim’s hand away from where he’s tearing at his neck and pushes up the sleeve. Tiny pink dots freckle across Tim’s skin. “You have chickenpox.”

    He might as well have just told Tim he had testicular cancer with the way his face blanches in horror. “You’re kidding me."

    Summary

    Spock tells Kirk about his planet long before they go. He is logical and straightforward, listing the objective facts, but Kirk knows what he means. When Spock says, “The temperature is significantly higher than Earth’s,” he means that sometimes the Enterprise gets cold, and he misses home. “A dry heat,” he assures Kirk, and Kirk knows it means that Spock can’t stand humidity. “The sands were always red,” and that’s why it’s Spock’s favorite color. “Near my home there was a Korian tree, and it was only in bloom five days a year,” so Spock sends a communication to his mother every year on those days and asks how the tree is doing. It’s a very beautiful picture that Spock paints with facts and numbers.

    When Spock asks Kirk about Earth, about Iowa, all Kirk can describe are the stars.

    Summary

    Like impressionistic paintings, he says helpfully, offers the metaphor like a prayer, something familiar they might grab hold of.

    So you can see, they say, and Matt sighs.

    And people say autistics take things too literally.

    Summary

    “Just keep coming back to me,” says Foggy, and Matt could kiss him then, he could, but that’s not fair, because one of these nights Matt will come back to him in a bodybag and it’s already bad enough. It wouldn’t be fair. It’s unfair enough as it is. Matt Murdock, finally finding the sin he won’t commit in the name of justice. Matt Murdock, never quite falling out of love.

    “I promise,” says Matt, and Foggy isn’t the one who hears heartbeats, can’t catch the lie.
