    Summary

    From the outside, the rain shelter looks so small—nowhere near as big and lonely as it felt the first day you sat there. You take a deep breath and try to avoid the sinking feeling of weight settling over your whole body. It’s only been a few days. You have food and everything. It’s going to be fine.

    (But nobody came.)

    Davenport, beginning to end.

    I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."

    Summary

    Five times Taako manages to get a hug from one of his friends without having to actually admit that he wants a hug, and one time he flat out cops to it.
    1. Taako hates being cold and wet. He's both, thanks to an inconvenient river. Magnus is a human furnace, and thus it begins.
    2. Waking up feeling inexplicably lonely, Taako tries to goad Magnus into bickering with him in a bid for some company. He gets the company, at least.
    3. Angus is almost hit by a rogue cart, Taako deals with being idolized and trusted by a kid he doesn't think he deserves the faith of.
    4. During a fight, Taako almost dies, and Merle gets to practice his healing skills.
    5. Magnus has a nightmare, Merle nearly loses Magnus after a fight, and Taako finds himself on the other side of things.
    + 1. Merle casts Zone of Truth, Magnus is a good friend, and Taako makes a confession.

    Lucretia has done him a great mercy, he supposes. You can’t miss what you never knew you had in the first place.

    Summary

    The book shudders violently in his hands, then. It's a signal that only means one thing; that he has a new, powerful target, one he can't ignore.

    Kravitz opens it and, very quietly, swears. Then he summons his scythe and goes to track down the man who used to be the hunger.

    ***

    Taako rebuilds his brand. John sulks his way through the afterlife. Kravitz is the arbiter of life and death, but that doesn't mean he's good at making decisions.

    Summary

    There is a version of Taako who rarely stopped holding his sister's hand for the first ten or so years of his life, and a second version of Taako who couldn't look in a mirror sometimes because he looked at his own face and saw static and everything felt wrong and he never knew why. They exist impossibly in the same space, fractured pieces that don't quite form a whole person.

    Summary

    Magnus shakes his head. “I wanna know what you mean.”

    Taako groans. Magnus is a good guy, but he pushes people too far and he just won’t take no for an answer.

    “I mean,” Taako says, softly, “why get near people when you’re just gonna get hurt?”

    ____

    Taako wonders whether relationships are worth the damage he's endured, Magnus wonders too, and Merle sleeps through their bonding moment.

    Summary

    The process of choosing the crew for the Starblaster mission was done very carefully (or as carefully as possible, but really - you need a crew of some pretty reckless people if you want to blast them off into space and beyond).

    Summary

    Barry falls in love with Lup. When he thinks it to himself, it seems inadequate. How can you find language for lifetimes spent together? For two people who have advanced science and reality and the frontiers of emotion themselves, the difficult part is expression.

    In which Taako and Barry try to understand each other.
