    Summary

    After, it took weeks before he thought of the twins – really thought of them, two teenagers whose brother he almost—

    It took him weeks to wonder how they must have felt, and now he wonders again, wonders if, just like him, Mairu inhales smoke so she doesn’t have to breathe in the lack of Izaya. God knows there seems to be more of it than there’s oxygen in the city.

    God knows cigarette smoke is nowhere near as bitter.

    Or, Shizuo can't forget Izaya, so he decides to remember him instead.

    Summary

    "Shizuo stares at the broken dummy, sweat trickling against his forehead and down towards his eyes; and then there’s the sound of clapping, the noise of incongruous applause, and his attention jerks up and away with all the speed of startled adrenaline behind it." Shizuo is dreading the start of peace talks between the neighboring kingdom and the one he will one day inherit, but when he meets the foreign prince, he finds himself more than a little distracted from politics by his personal feelings.

    Summary

    "For Izaya, the truest expression of his humanity is in drawing together the fragments of information scattered like clues through the data link and the offhand speech of witnesses or suspects alike, of weaving a tapestry of understanding from the threads of seeming meaninglessness that surround every living organism in the city." Izaya is the best investigator at the detective firm he works for, but when he gets assigned a new partner, he finds questions of humanity taking the lead in his attention.
