    Summary

    Not one species of any creature which flourished before the tertiary now exists. Thus to find not only frequent additions to the previous existing forms, but frequent withdrawals of forms which had apparently become inappropriate is a fact calculated very forcibly to arrest attention.
    Robert Chambers, Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation (1844)

     

    In which Dr. Goodsir lives to become a renowned naturalist studying the history of extinction, John Bridgens quotes Sappho, Crozier lives happily ever after with Silna, and a reasonably non-horrible time is had by all, except by those who are dead.

    Summary

    An alternative meet cute in which Harry Goodsir is a young anatomy student, Hickey is a friendly neighbourhood body snatcher providing him with cadavers to dissect, and cute is a very relative term anyway.

    (Aka the history of medical scholarship, and the academic background of the historical Harry Goodsir, are a joy to behold.)
