    Summary

    It’s just after 7:00pm, somewhere in North America, and Nile needs something to distract her before she gets in the car, points it towards Chicago, and drives until she sees the lights of her mother’s house. Alex Trebek is there - just like he's always been.

    (The gang watches Jeopardy!: wagers are made, popcorn is thrown, and peace is found).

    Summary

    Nile doesn't think she's ever actually mailed a postcard. She bought some once when she went to Springfield on a class trip, but she just gave one to Mom when she got home.

    She isn't sure what to say. Whether she can even safely say anything.

    She settles on writing, simply, Wish you were here. She copies down the address that Copley sent over, buys absurdly cheap stamps, and drops the postcard in a mailbox outside one of the sunbaked white resort buildings.

    There. Done.

    ---

    Or, Nile and Booker fall in, out of, and in love again over the 100-year exile.

    Summary

    Yusuf is twenty-seven when he learns the last principle of growing up: you can't go home again. He's thirty-three when he meets the love of his life. He's... a lot older than that when he comes home again.

    Summary

    “So this is getting up?” Joe mutters after a minute has passed, carding a hand through Nicky’s hair. “I must remember it wrong.”

    In which a very productive time is had by all.

    Summary

    “You know, we could probably get a little robot to do that,” Nile said. “Put you out of a job.”

    “Yep,” he said, nodding seriously as though she’d made an important point. He carefully wiped away some excess glue with a Q-tip. “This is the only thing I do around here.”

    The team adapt to new technology as best they can, but sometimes they need to find a workaround.
