    Summary

    What if Wilde had chosen to stay dead?

    //

    “Wilde, I can’t stay here.”

    “You can though, I just told you I’d make it nice for you,” says this strange, young Wilde, frustrated, and he throws his arms out and backs up, gesturing to the expanse around him. Zolf follows, from an almost instinctual need to have Wilde in his radius, frightened of what might happen if he goes too far. “Look—there. Right?”

    The sand is coarse beneath his boots, crunching and sliding. Wilde points behind him, and Zolf turns; the door he’d just come through leads not back to Wilde’s Parisian apartment, but into a kitchen. Zolf backs up, startled, slipping in the sand.

    Summary

    There are, as far as Steven’s concerned, Steven Problems, Marc Problems, and Jake Problems.

    Jake Problems are actually few and far between. He keeps to himself, mostly. Steven’s been quietly trying to find out what sort of tea he might like so he can leave a cuppa out for him every now and again. Steven Problems are mostly things like “buy groceries”. They’re rather essential problems, he thinks. As far as he knows, Jake has never set foot in a grocery store, and Marc tends to only buy cereal and instant coffee. It is entirely plausible, Steven thinks, that Marc has never heard of a vegetable.

    Marc Problems can also be simpler. Marc’s job is to pay the rent, with money Steven generally tries not to think about the origins of. Marc has to remember to feed Gus and Gus 2.0. There’s some very easy, very solvable Marc Problems.

    However, there’s a woman with long blond hair who’s been sitting at the cafe Steven’s at watching him for about fifteen minutes. She’s wearing a dark green vest over a black turtleneck and jeans, and every time he sneaks a peek at her out of the corner of his eye, she’s watching him.

    Summary

    Marc originally sets up the phone line to help keep tabs on Steven whenever he was too tired to crawl his way into consciousness and pay attention--but he can only listen to Steven beg for his Mum to talk back for so long until he has to do something about it. A one-shot about how Marc takes care of Steven by writing postcards pretending to be someone they both miss.

    OR: Marc Spector takes "reparenting yourself" literally.
