    Summary

    The blood rushes through his ears and drowns out all other noise as he goes still. Intentionally, he reaches deep within himself, down to the very essence of what makes him the person he is, and twists it, knows it. It hurts; of course it does. But in the end, he opens his eyes again and he knows that he has to go on.

    In this moment, the Archivist forces himself to become Jonathan Sims once more.

    Summary

    “It’s a preexisting condition,” Jon explains, sipping more bitter tea. “I sort of got—hm. You know Spiderman?”

    Tim raises an eyebrow.

    “Heard of him, yeah.”

    Jon nods, studying his tea.

    “It’s sort of like that,” he says. “A spider killed and ate me when I was a child, and now I can’t stay dead.”

    Summary

    Tim is beginning to realize that research at the Institute is a very different beast from research at the publishing house. For one, there’s the content of the research. For two, there’s the actual research materials. And for three—

    “Come on, Tim.” Jon waves to him from halfway up the fence he’s currently scaling. “If I’m going to break my neck today, it had better be for a good reason.”

    For three, there’s the research methods.

    Tim gets paired with Jon for his first big research assignment. Things don't go that great.

    Summary

    “Jonathan,” Melanie says, with full contempt, stopping her physical assault on Gerry to start her verbal assault on Jon. “Just turn your head. There are, what,” a brief pause to count, so as to keep her criticism accurate and incisive, “six two-meter windows looking in. If he can’t infer that the place with all the books on shelves is the library, he wouldn’t be a threat to our society in the first place.”

    “No,” Gerry says, thoughtful. “I think you should do a sign. It would be fantastic. Welcome to the M.A. Library. Enter to experience books older than your great-grandfather’s dick, and also maybe premeditated robbery.”

    “Alright,” says Jon. “I get it. There was no reason to bully me about it. Christ.”

    Summary

    “I’m already dead, after all.” Gerry smiles, a mirthless flash of teeth. “If I pop out of existence tomorrow, fine. If I stick around for a while, well—at least now I’ve got someone to talk to.” His tone of voice is still blasé, but his gaze falls heavily on Jon, as though asking, Right?

    “Yes,” says Jon. “Yes, of course.”

    ---

    When Jon wakes up from his coma, he finds that while Gerry may still be dead, he’s not exactly gone.
