    Summary

    The silence stretches between them, and for the first time since Mr. Miyagi left for Okinawa, it really hits Daniel that he and Johnny are alone together here—the summer a broad, uncharted thing, stretching ahead of them like a shimmery horizon. Things could get lost, melt together, become sun-bleached beyond recognition. It’s dizzying to think about, so he shakes his head, stops himself from going in too deep.

    Or, black eyes, a broken A/C, playboy tits, and the biggest secret.

    Summary

    Of all the things Glorfindel had expected to come across on this seemingly normal day, patrolling the wastelands of Arnor, it wasn’t a group of slavers, dragging behind them a Dwarf, bound waist-to-neck with wire.

    Summary

    “You might have made a fine ruler,” Bertilak said, rising as their vessel collided with the shore.

    “That is true,” Gawain said cautiously, tethering the boat to the base of the cross, “but I am no warrior. To rule in this land is to bring ruin.”

    “Better you had died, then, in order to spare countless lives?” Bertilak asked. “You would have made a martyr of yourself like Winifred.”

    “Yes,” Gawain said, helping Bertilak out of the boat. “What a queer pair of ghosts we’d be.”

    Bertilak sighed, spreading his arms wide. “Lead on, though thy thwarted fate awaits thee.”

    “Death is not the thwarted fate I seek,” Gawain said, grabbing Bertilak’s hand, tired of waiting.

    Summary

    Kim feels for the Satellite Officer. It’s clear what he’s been through, what Harry has subjected him to over the last few years - Kim only knows the half of it, of course, but he’s seen it before, hermit-cops pushing everyone away, their partner last man standing at the bombsite. Still, it feels cruel to punish this person for it, this wiped-clean, remade Harry, looking at Kim now like a bottle-fed animal about to be released into the wild. If Kim does go to the 41st, navigating all this will be an extra layer of complexity. He should think very carefully about it - about whether it’s worth getting mixed up in all of it. The mess.

    A slow-burn, Kim-POV story about going to the 41st, against his better judgement.
