    Summary

    If you asked Richie to name the three people least likely to be handling the animal talent on this set, he would say Sandra Day O’Connor, Mike Tyson, and Eddie Kaspbrak. All preposterously out of place, and all uniquely intimidating. But he swivels around in the makeup chair, takes two steps, and there he is, his Eddie, with a furry monstrosity heaped in his arms like a museum with no coat check, milling around by Camera 2. Here we go: initiating Jell-o spine! Locking knees into position! Dumping sweat reserves to palms in three, two, one! With any luck Richie will shoot through the roof at an angle that crash lands in the ocean. Then the cat hisses at a boom op, and Eddie shushes it with a withering scowl so familiar Richie breaks out in a snorting giggle he hasn’t had genuine access to since he was a snotnosed kid. Not in decades. Not since Eddie declined to take their little double act from radio to the screen, and Richie went ahead without him.

    Summary


    He found one such little railed observing space to watch, curious, as one of Tommys older colleagues picked up the framed photo from Tommys desk, scrutinizing it with a scowl.

    “Wait, where the hell did the fucking spook who was in this yesterday go?” Despite the scientists rather sour looking countenance, the words did not seem truly aggressive. Just vague curiosity, with an acidic edge.

    ---
    Mr. Coolatta is much more used to observing then he is being observed in turn. Partially, this is because he often doesn't particularly exist. And were it not for becoming a Father, he would certainly exist a great deal less. This may explain, perhaps, why some of Tommy's new co-workers taking notice of him is.

    Interesting.

    Somewhat distracting.

    Obviously not something he can do anything about. Certainly not. And so long as he doesn't, it's not as if anyone ELSE would do something about it. ...Right?

    Summary

    Vortigaunts do not experience time the way humans do. Time is not a flat line where the past is behind them. It is with them always. More then memory. Regrettably less then time travel. Because if Uriah could change these moments of the past, then he would have known what to say when the human he did not yet know as Dr. Arne Magnusson finds him.

    But he revisits it often all the same, with the appreciation of the many years between them.

    It is the day of Black Mesa; when the end of the hopeless future will come. It hasn't happened yet; and the Vortigaunt who is not yet named Uriah remembers how it felt to first look at the sky.

    (Or: In which the author gets kind of Really Into trying to write an alien perspective with a wholly different outlook on time, and also what that would mean when you are in love with someone, and also no force on earth can tell me these two aren't A Thing.)
