    Summary

    Towards the bottom of the list, a short title stood out: “GOD.” Curious, Nile skimmed the description: By drawing on sources from antiquity to the present day, from philosophy to poetry, from mysticism to neuroscience, from Eastern philosophers to their Western counterparts, this seminar explores what we talk about when we talk about God. [Thursdays, 2-5pm, Prof. Y. al-Kaysani & Prof. N. di Genova. Max. enrollment: 10 students.]

    “I’m kind of intrigued by this one here that’s just called ‘God,’” she said tentatively.

    Professor Scythia’s eyebrows shot up. “Oh? Why that one?”

    -

    OR, college senior Nile takes a very unusual seminar, made even stranger by the fact that the two professors teaching it seem to utterly despise each other.

    Summary

    Nile is sombre when she says: “If that’s what you want.”

    Her words may seem cold, but Joe knows she is just shocked, trying to deal with the news. Her voice doesn’t falter. She’s their boss, after all.

    “Fuck, guys,” Booker is smiling. His eyes are full of tears, but Joe holds onto that smile. It’s been a long time since the Merrick betrayal. Booker is better, and he is trying to smile for them, for Joe, whose heart is breaking. It’s not a true smile, but it means a lot.

    “It’s the right thing to do.”

    Joe turns to look at the sofa, where Quỳnh is knitting a scarf, her mouth is a thin line. There is a tightness around her eyes which comes back every time she is thinking about Andy and gets sad. The moments of complete sadness, when Quỳnh acts like she sees the ghost of her wife in front of her, have decreased across the decades. But now everything is coming back, as if Andy died all over again.

    Because Nicky isn’t healing. And Joe knows they need to leave.

    Summary

    The stories say there is a ship that sails on the furthest edges of space. It's said to have left Earth with the first settlers, those intrepid and brave explorers hoping to build a new home amongst the distant stars.

    They say the ship has a crew of just five; old warriors who know their swords from their blasters, and can wield both just as well to protect those lost in the dark.

    A ghost ship in every way, they’ve put their souls into it and their very spirits are entwined in the wiring.

    If you’ve made a name for yourself off broken backs, if you leave ruined ships floating in space and jettison bodies into the icy black, well, those same stories warn that you should fear crossing their path.

    After all, how can you outrun a ghost ship? The answer’s simple: you can’t.

    With all the time in the universe, it’ll run you down. There’s no corner, chartered or uncharted, for you to hide in. And if you’re looking to test yourself against them, to trap them, to see what a ghost crew really looks like...don’t.

    Summary

    When. Tomatoes were introduced to the middle east in the late 17th century, so really, Nile thinks, this argument shouldn't be as tense as it is.

    Summary

    HSavinien's story, read aloud (9min).

    "Are you sure you're okay? The flat my friends and I are renting is just around the corner." She pauses for a second and adds, "Sorry, that sounded weird. If you wanted to sit down and have a glass of water or something, I mean."

    Jackie looks her over and tips her head, smile widening. "Wouldn't mind, if your friends don't."

    Nile feels the blush rising in her face. "Of course they won't."

    Summary

    pearwaldorf's story, read aloud (7minutes).

    “What month is it?”

    Nile looks at her watch. “April.”

    Andy looks like she’s calculating something in her head. “Ah. It’s that time of year again.”

    “Ramadan? I didn’t think either of them were religious still.”

    Andy shrugs, a twitch of her shoulders. “I don’t think it’s a religious thing anymore, not really. You can ask them about it.”
