    Summary

    Ten years into the war against Kaiju, what used to be a taboo against scavenging from the fallen Jaegers in Oblivion Bay had become standard practice. Armor, circuitry, rare-earth metals— the first time PPDC techs cannibalized a defunct Tacit Ronin for its conn-pod circuitry, thousands of people gathered in protests and candlelight vigils. At the time, resources were already scarce, but the government could spin it as environmental stewardship instead of necessity.

    Nowadays, those who opposed the practice were rare. Maxwell received approval to restore Titan Wind to working condition within days of her application.

    Summary

    Before he met Carlos, he hadn't known it was possible to love another person so much. Now, he looked out into the star-speckled void before closing the curtains in his son's room and he was beginning to suspect that a bit of that void lived inside himself too. An endless and consuming space from which poured a limitless tide of love for his little family.

    But then he would kiss Esteban good night and sit on the couch and, maybe Carlos would be home, maybe he'd be at work, or Cecil would have cover a late shift at the station, or they'd sit on the chairs on the porch and try not to fall asleep before dinner, and he'd have to admit (even just in a hoarse whisper to the Secret Police microphone inside the showerhead) that it was exhausting.

    Summary

    Zolf comes in rain-soaked from yet another dead end and, now that he can focus properly without getting drenched, reaches out to his new, nameless god for a jolt of that not-quite-hope that’s been keeping him going.

    It washes over him, warm and bright, for just a moment, and he finds himself completely dry, which is nice. Spares him having to wring out his beard and rebraid the bits that get mucked up. He wanders the inn looking for Wilde before he remembers Wilde won’t have any interest in seeing him.

    (Zolf quarantines, Wilde copes, and definitely neither of them has feelings for the other)
