    Summary

    “Joe didn’t lie back in that lab,” Booker tells him gently. “I am selfish. I am a liar. But beyond everything else, Nicky, I’m a coward.”

    “Really,” says Nicky, looking unimpressed.

    [Booker tries to save his family from Quynh. He's rather good at it, if not a little dramatic about the entire process. In the meantime, he learns a little more about himself, his family, and the definitions of bravery, forgiveness and love.]

    Summary

    It was somewhat ironic that Booker had learned just how much the team meant to him right in time for it to get him killed. Repeatedly.

    Still, it wasn't like he was about to just tell Quynh where Andy was, now was he?

    Summary

    Booker had imagined his penance very differently. He’d been planning seventy or so solid years getting drunk in Paris, wallowing in his own guilt – nothing new there, he’d been doing that for two hundred years already – and then taking the final thirty to get his shit together enough to be…something, when he met the others again. Less detestable, maybe.

    Quynh had put paid to that notion, and he’d been hungover, unshaven and miserable when he’d seen them again.

    Unfairly, Joe has shaved since Booker had last seen him. To throw people off their trail, to keep anyone from recognizing him, to keep Merrick’s people from recognizing him, and Booker swallows that down miserably with the rest of his shame. The torment of Joe looking like that, younger and sharper and more furious with Booker than ever, is nothing Booker doesn’t deserve.

    Nicky still hasn’t even spoken to him.
