    Summary

    “Well how did you fare in those Cambridge networking events, hm?”

    “Poorly,” Neil grins at him. “I showed up in a lab coat and they treated me as one would a box of wasps.”

    (Or, the Protagonist invites Neil to share in the administrative side of things.)

    Summary

    The possibility of not recruiting Neil at all is never discussed.
    It brings up a lot of questions, the protagonist thinks later that night, staring up at the ceiling. He will recruit Neil because he knows who Neil will become. It’s a stunted paradoxical little loop. How did it start?
    The protagonist knows how it will end.
    Unless…unless he walks away. Lying in the dark, wide awake, the protagonist is tempted.
    (Can we change things, if we do it differently?)
    But…
    “What’s happened, happened,” the protagonist reminds himself.
    Besides (selfish, selfish). He wants to see Neil again.

    Somewhere in between the end and the beginning, Neil and the protagonist manage to find a little time.

    Summary

    All those Bond movies you watched as a kid never really prepared you for just how boring International Espionage can be, especially when you're trapped in the window seat on a transatlantic flight, with Neil sleeping in the seat next to you.
    Your mind wanders, and you wish you could stop it.
    Or maybe you don't, not anymore.

    Air travel gives enough liminal space for realisations about the nature of the things you're in the middle of...

    Summary

    You’ll be on equal ground, after years of you having this small pocket of time hidden in a corner of your mind, of your heart, your very soul.

    Or, a post-Sator mission reunion.

    You don't let him die (and then the reward sex against the garage door...)
