    Summary

    “I’m aware of the reputation this institution has garnered. What I’m wondering is why, in light of that, you still chose to come here."

    “Do you want to scare me off?” Jon frowns. This is not how he thought the interview was going to go.

    “Not at all. You like answers.” Elias gives him a conspiratorial smile. “So do I. Now tell me, what does a bright young thing like you expect to find in my institute?"

    Summary

    “Jonah Magnus.” The cloudy silhouette snarled as it’s hand clamped tightly around Jonah's ascot. That was indeed his name, but Jonah couldn’t begin to fathom what he did to have it spat out with such hatred.

    But nonetheless, Jonah was a gentleman and he would kindly address the angry figure as politely as possible, “Yes, and you are?”

    “What?” The form spluttered as it slowly came into focus. Ah, yes. That probably wasn’t the proper response to being held at gunpoint by a random stranger. Must have been the blow to his head.

    (Or in which Jonathan Sims goes back in time and tries to pull a Terminator, but fails and Jonah Magnus finds a new mystery to solve.)

    Summary

    The cold of the countertop begins to warm under his fingers. Will Hears. On the fringes of his vacant mind, he listens for something, feeling around in the dark. There is a strange fizzing sound, the sizzling of a pan. Bacon, or sausage perhaps? Fresh breakfast and spices. There is sunlight, he can hear the morning rising throughout the house. Muted voices, distant, happy chatter.

    Unconsciously, Will shifts his focus. The emotions come quickly, shooting up through the floor and into his body like an electric shock. It makes him shiver. He slips on a foreigner’s skin and feels. There is the quiet rush of joy, the elegant kind, when your hands have done something so many times that you’ve turned it into a kind of performance. A strange art. Dedicated to the enjoyment and honed perfection of a craft. Exhilarating and relaxing all at once.

    Second comes a wave of love, parental instincts, the need to mold and to nurture. To care for someone. Fatherly love for a daughter, perhaps—Touch is a tricky talent. The faint smell of old-new paper, and carpet and fresh fabric well-taken care of. Earthy, lazy impressions and hot tea in fine cups.

    ———————

    In which Will hunts ghosts. Then he encounters Hannibal Lecter.

    Summary

    Lost and alone at the end of the world, Jon decides to try one last idea. It goes wrong, as his ideas usually do, when both the Web and the Spiral decide to interfere with what he's doing. For once the disaster goes his favor. Mostly.

    He wouldn't have chosen to go back in time to when he was eight years old. He certainly wouldn't have chosen to catch Elias freaking Bouchard's attention before he's had a chance to do anything. And he cannot believe that his luck is so monumentally bad that he gets adopted by the man who wants to use him to end the world.

    Jon has to figure out how to keep Elias away, while saving his friends and the world. And hopefully growing old enough that he can go anywhere on his own and be taken seriously.
