    Summary

    “It’s not wrong if you write it down,” Mo Xuanyu muttered to himself like a mantra as he scribbled down a rough explanation of what he was going to do. “If you write it down, it’s just an experiment, and that makes it okay.”

    That’s what they used to say back at Koi Tower, back when they were doing all those bad things.

    They also said that you’re supposed to try stuff out before you do the real thing, because practice makes perfect. And anyway, surely it wouldn't hurt to put the cat in the middle of the body-sacrificing array before he put himself in - the array ran on resentment, on revenge, and how much resentment could a cat possibly have?

    Summary

    Sasha fixed Tim and Martin with a glare that was deathly serious. “But why should that stop us? It is— or was, I suppose, given... everything— our literal job to investigate supernatural events. If the police won’t figure out what happened to the Institute, we’ll do it. Doesn’t everyone deserve that? Doesn’t Jon deserve that?”

     

    In the face of an unyielding apocalypse, the being that was once Jonathan Sims has one final, desperate idea. The archival assistants pick up the pieces.

    Summary

    Over the years, Kakashi’s become an expert in activating the Sharingan for the smallest moment if he wants to take a picture. A few seconds for a video. Now that he’s getting closer to the end, he’s made sure to document all the little things. Chakra exhaustion is worth it for these precious memories. Besides, he’s in War Ops now, which means he should be fine.

    And he is, until he isn’t.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “No. Please don’t ask me to.”

    He can pinpoint the moment when Shikako backs down.

    Shikako-chan gets it. She understands the underneath the underneath, and the underneath underneath the underneath.

    ___

    DoS chapter 123:

    I didn't... I didn't necessarily agree. To face death for a legacy. To cling tightly to something that could be fixed, even if it was a sacrifice. To not fight for survival, for just one more day, just a little bit more.

    It was stupid.

    But he said please.

    (In the back of my mind I knew... if it came down to it, to the crunch time, to the point of no return... I would argue it. I would poke and prod and convince, no matter how little he wanted it, because I wanted him to die even less. He'd hate it, maybe resent me for it, but I'd do it. But it wasn't crunch time yet.)

    Summary

    He winds up in an afterlife different from his expectations, in a body that's oddly familiar. When he's shoved into an office filled to the brim with paperwork, he naturally assumes he's in hell, and the crazy voice in his head backs up that assumption. Good thing he's good at adapting.
