    Summary

    The Ascians have summoned their god, and the scars on Thancred's soul resonate to His song. The twins have a plan that might spare his life, but only at costs far too great to consider under any other circumstance.

    Sacrificing oneself is difficult. Sentencing a dear companion to a fate most would consider worse than death a thousand times more so.

    Summary

    And suddenly Martin can feel his tongue, and sense each swell of his lungs. He realises how sore his neck and lower back are after months of hunching over a computer. The suit jacket he wears, has worn every day for weeks, is too tight on his upper arms.
    Oh, god. He is in a room with Jonathan Sims.
    “You’re really suggesting this,” Martin says, voice pulled thin.
    “Yes.” Jon does not hesitate.
    “You would- actually do it?”
    “I would.”
    “Why?”
    Because love is blind, says something cliché and cruel in the pit of his gut. Christ, he never was much of a poet, was he?

    Or,

    When Jon asks Martin to Quit the Archives with him, Martin says yes. In the Scottish Highlands, they hurt, and they heal.

    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?
