    Summary

    Something breaks in him in that triage room. The high-pitched whine of the heart monitor replaces Nathan’s heartbeat, and something in Harold shatters, runs out of him like his blood between his fingers where he cups his neck as he slowly, painstakingly gets up. The world has always been refracted into different pictures through the facets of his mind but it was Nathan, always Nathan providing him with a true north, the pattern to which he knows to reset the kaleidoscope. Or perhaps, the main incentive for such a reset.

    His mind is already turning again, assessing everything he knows about the people who murdered Nathan in a new light, a new facet, a new pattern through the kaleidoscope.

    They broke him, and in return, he breaks his own rules.


    Or: After losing Nathan, instead of reassessing his morals and becoming a better person, Harold abandons a lot of them.

    Summary

    "I said no such thing. Only that it would be unethical, not to mention unwise, to sleep with an employee."

    An entirely unnecessary 4C coda.

    Summary

    "She's fine," John mumbles into his hand. "In fact, she's on a date."

    There's silence on the other end of the line. Then Harold says, incredulous: "A date? In a field in the middle of the night?"

    John has been waiting for something he doesn't know how to name. Fortunately, Harold is good with words.

    Summary

    There's an unconscious smile on Harold's face, and his pupils are blown so wide that there's only the barest ring of blue left. He turns his head when John sits next to him and smiles: wide, unguarded, and fond. John looks away.

    Harold and John are compromised during a case. John is forced to do damage control.
