    Summary

    Jim's managing, alright? It's not exactly as if there's a guidebook on how to be a Protector--Sentinel--whatever it is he's supposed to be. He's had to figure it out as he goes and honestly, he's doing a pretty good job. He hasn't fallen into himself so far that he can't claw back out. And if he ever does? If he's ever so caught up in something (or nothing) that he can't find his way out?

    Jim tries to steer his mind away from the nagging thought, from the threat of being so thoroughly lost. He's fine. He's managing.

    Summary

    August comes regardless, and the people left have to get on with their lives.

    There are moments when he tricks himself into believing it's all the same, but now he's giving rides to Billy, whose hands, covered in scars, shake when he lights his cigarettes. And he spends most days with Robin, who can't believe that people could just forget, who says that she'll never get back to normal again.

    “You will,” Steve insists. It might not be entirely true, but who could say?

    Summary

    Harrington breezes past him without so much as a glance his way. He feels the heat rise in him again, more insistent this time, and in a blink, he finds his fist has clenched itself resolutely in Harrington’s preppy jacket.

    Harrington looks at him with—Billy’s vision goes red—polite confusion. Like he doesn’t know him. Like he isn't afraid.

    In the back of his mind, Billy can feel his conscience trying to reason with him. Remember when you used to be happy? It asks him. Remember how you used to smile and people would smile back at you, and they liked you? It prompts, showing him those same faded memories that Max’s superhero friend had dredged up.

    Billy breathes, and Harrington continues to look concerned, and finally Billy releases him as he thinks, Fine. Thinks: This isn’t my Harrington anyway.

    -

    Or, the one where Billy Hargrove is snatched from the claws of death at the very last minute, tumbled into a world that isn't quite his own, and manages to learn a few things about himself along the way.
