    Summary

    Jonathan Sims is rather tired of being kidnapped but Martin Blackwood, a fully-realized Avatar of The Lonely, is a better host that most. True, he's an empty, washed-out version of a human, but piece by piece Jon manages to unearth someone worth knowing behind the isolation and the distance.

    Of course, there's the questions of why Martin kidnapped him in the first place, what The Lonely wants with The Archivist (or with The Archivist out of the way), why Elias Bouchard and Peter Lukas still seem to be working together despite that, and what The Web has to do with. Well. Everything.

    Other than that, though, Jon is as interested in Martin himself as he is in everything surrounding him. Which include the end of the world. A world that Jon's not completely convinced shouldn't end.

    Summary

    “Who is that?” asked Tracy. Tracy was May’s least favorite of her orientation friends. She was hoping that Charlie, Lindsey, and Ben agreed, and that they would start doing things without Tracy soon, but she did not know everyone well enough yet to judge whether that suggestion would be well-received.

    “It’s my roommate,” May said. “Olivia.”

    “I am so sorry,” said Tracy. “What is she even wearing.” Olivia was wearing the same thing she was always wearing, which was a pair of ratty jeans with holes in the knees, heavy combat boots, a t-shirt with an obscure logo, and a leather jacket covered with even more obscure pins. It was a terrible outfit for the warm months. The dining hall was a large, airy room, with ceiling fans on long supports suspended from the high rafters, but it wasn’t air-conditioned, and Olivia was visibly sweating as she picked her way down the aisle towards the condiment bar.

    “I really don’t think what she’s wearing is her biggest problem,” May said, absently, watching Olivia absolutely obliterate the hot dog on her tray with a barrage of condiments.

    Summary

    “Elias, no.”

    Elias eyes Jon across the table, taking a sip of wine rather than responding. The quiet chattering of the restaurant feels muffled, far away, as Jon squirms under the weight of what feels like too many eyes.

    “I mean you, of all people, should know that I’m hardly one for socializing with the Lukas family, nor am I one to attend 'galas' for God's sake-”

    Elias’s lips quirk upwards in a smirk.

    “Yes, Jon. I do vividly recall that my dry cleaner was never quite able to get the stain out of my tie. Though, perhaps this time you’ll be better in control of your, frankly overzealous habit of gesticulating with Pinot Noir?”

    Jon feels his skin prickle with a blush.

    “He started it,” Jon mumbles bitterly.

    “Yes, well, you know better than to let Peter get under your skin,” Elias sighs, “I’m afraid this isn’t a request, Jonathan. As you well know, our people have a way of doing things, and they want to meet the new Head Archivist. Besides, as I recall you do look rather dashing in a tuxedo.”
