    Summary

    “All right, then, Hayward. We have a dilemma on our hands. I’m done with my coffee. I’d just as soon send you back over the water and let you go, but the ferryman is at the prayer-meeting and so’s anybody else I’d trust to mind you. So until we decide what to do with you, you’re going to have to await judgment somewhere safe.”
    “What? You’re throwing me in jail?”
    “You did come here to kill Brother Faulkner,” Carpenter says mildly. “So there’s no use in getting all indignant. And anyway, this is an abbey of two hundred people. We don’t have a jail. What we do have is an old root cellar that bolts from the outside. We throw the drunks in there if they go overboard on the rice wine at a feast. It’s not as bad as it sounds.”
    “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Hayward says.

    Or: Mason gets the Withermark, and uses it to rain destruction down on the enemies of the Parish of Tides and Flesh. This is what happens next.

    Summary

    Carpenter slid into the passenger side gratefully.
    “Do we still have those nuts in the glove compartment?”

     

    Faulkner turned the key in the engine, then got out and smacked the bonnet a few times before the car started up proper.
    “Sacrificed them to those compost heaps the other week.”

     

     

    Or, Faulkner and Carpenter's road trip brings them to a place that the locals call the Chalk, the out-of-towners call a whole bunch of fields and not much else, and which they will shortly come to know as a truly miserable detour

    Summary

    “Do you think he’s okay in there?” she asks, smoke billowing from her mouth in tiny clouds as she speaks. And honestly, I don't know what to say to her. I just sit against the car, twirling the hotel keys in between my fingers. 

    after the wither mark, faulkner's faith changes. paige and carpenter stand witness.

    Summary

    “You ever think, if it was possible to create something better, someone would have done it already?” Carpenter asks.
    “All the time,” Paige says. “But I’d still like to try.”
    Carpenter thinks on that for a few moments as the dump grows darker around them. “We need to get Faulkner and get out of here,” Carpenter says. “All the rest, you and I can talk about later.”
    The rest? Paige thinks. The rest of what?

    Summary

    Overall, going into training to become a carpenter has been a good move for Faulkner. For one thing, he could move out of his dad’s house to a new town where he didn’t know anybody, and that made it a lot easier to transition socially. It’s a trade that involves precision, and he’s good at that, and it pays well enough that he can meet his basic needs and still be able to afford hormones and counseling for his OCD, no sweat. The only problem is his boss. They’re having some compatibility issues.

    Summary

    “There’s one option left to us. Tonight, at least,” Carpenter says. “We could run.”
    Faulkner looks over the half-completed Withermark, and back to Carpenter. He thinks back to his call with Eddie and his call with Mason. You’re only a martyr if somebody knows why you’re gone, a small, truthful voice inside of him says. And if you die tonight, nobody would know or care.
    Carpenter cared, at least, enough to come back for him. Even if it had been with half a mind to kill him. That had to count for something. “Okay, then,” he says.

    or: five times Carpenter protects Faulkner and one time it's the other way around

    Summary

    "So what's your name, sir?"
    "... Faulkner, mind the step,"
    "Thanks."
    "And you? Uh, name?"
    "Inspector Hayward. Police officer-"
    Faulkner interrupted him, voice dry, "Yeah I noticed from the uniform. Think I knew a Hayward once."
    He had, back in school. He'd been one of the bigger, rougher boys. Faulkner had enjoyed watching as he'd managed to knock himself unconscious trying to hear the Trawlerman's blessed music, and been disappointed when one of the boy's friends had hauled him, still breathing, out of the bathroom sink.
    "We ain't never met, I don't think,"
    "Nah, different Hayward."

    A canon divergence one-shot taking place immediately after episode 4.
