    Summary

    "“To grow old is a gift” doesn’t apply here. That little proverb is for people, normal people. People who get to live full lives that aren't woven with a too short thread. Old age may be what takes him in the end, if a poorly timed fall or the cigarettes he plans to quit don’t get him first. And yet, it gives him no respite, since for him, at the rate he’s dying he won’t see the better side of forty-five.

    With the Patriots and their System gone, he has nothing really to distract himself anymore. No way to pretend his end isn’t hiding in the shadows around the corner, waiting. "

    David doesn't have an external purpose to fulfill, so for his last days on Earth he looks inwards for something to live for.

    Summary

    "You're the best. You teach her."

    "See, that's the thing." Kishibe gestured to himself. "I'm old and cranky and my knees are about to give out any day now."

    "Nonsense, you don't look a day over twenty-five."

    "Whereas you," Kishibe continued without skipping a beat, "The love of my life, are beautiful and wise beyond your years. A young lass like her is impressionable, and you have always been impressive."

    Against her better judgement, Quanxi takes on recent hire Makima but finds there's more to the new Hunter trainee than meets the eye.

    Summary

    “But Hubert,” Ferdinand said, “I do not have any dossiers. If you have done something to earn condemnation, then I have no way of knowing what it is.”

    I took another pull from the flask. “Very well. In the absence of a dossier, I will tell you everything. Every last sordid deed. And then you may pass your judgment.”

    Summary

    You are an overworked and exploited employee of a downtown coffee bar intended to appeal to the denizens of the finance district. You hate every single one of them with the kind of passion Karl Marx only dreamed about. One day, passions of a different kind ignite when the tallest woman you've ever seen comes to the cafe. Alcina Dimitrescu is smart, funny, beautiful, and pushing on what has to be like 7' tall. She also seems like maybe she likes you? Is that even allowed??

    At first you just enjoy an excuse to be around such a strong and attractive woman, but as you spend more time with her, you begin hoping that Alcina really thinks you're special. Is she just toying with you? Does your time with her mean something? Are you ever going to be able to unionise your workplace?
