    Summary

    “Gideon,” replied Harrow, thoroughly bored of this interaction already and taking no pains to hide it. “There’s been a noise complaint about your social gathering, and as it is…” – she made a great show of checking the watch she didn’t own and therefore wasn’t wearing – “…ass and balls o’clock in the morning, I’m here to tell you to break it up and go to sleep like good little children.” She made sure to infuse ‘social gathering’ with the exact same tone of withering condescension she’d use to say, like, ‘debauched orgy’ or ‘World War II LARP session’ or ‘tea party with Ronald and Nancy Reagan.’

    Predictably, Gideon ignored her. Instead, she slouched even harder and more bonelessly against the doorframe and held her hand to her face in an upsettingly decent imitation of the thinking emoji. “Ortus again?” she asked eventually, her tone carefully pruned of all discernible emotion.

    “I take my role as senior resident of these halls of accommodation very seriously, as you well know, and it is my duty to investigate all complaints promptly and vigorously while protecting the anonymity of the complainant,” said Harrow officiously. “But yes, it was Ortus, because he is a big girl’s blouse.”

    He paused, offering her a tiny, sad smile. “That’s the thing about the dead, you know – they’re quite impossible to satisfy. I find the best thing to do is to stop trying.”

    --

    “Okay, fair point,” Gideon said mildly, her cheeks tinged faintly pink, and she sprang up, calling out “Text me, yeah?” casually back over her shoulder, as though she wasn’t carrying Harrow’s heart with her as she left.

    --

    "Oh, yeah,” Gideon said. “It’s all pretty good. I have an art exhibit coming up, actually, you guys should all come, it’s all about, like – subverting the male gaze, re-examining typical depictions of the female body from an equal perspective, you know, stuff like that.”

    “You just wanted to draw sexy ladies,” said Dulcinea, passing by with a luridly bright cocktail in her hand.

    “I just wanted to draw sexy ladies,” Gideon agreed, nodding placidly.

    Summary

    Adora dances through the strands of time programmed into the system. The first week, she jumps forward just a year or two — 2042, 2043, just before the breakup, back when they were still happy. In 2051, she sports the short, choppy haircut that was popular at the time. In 2066, it’s long, and dyed at the tips. She’s twenty two, over and over and over again, each weekend spent experiencing that age right on the cusp of adulthood as she weaves in and out of time periods, searching for Catra.

    In the summer of 2044, she wanders past a sports bar and sees her own face, sweaty and breathless in an interview. Adora remembers this video — it was taken just before she received her first Olympic gold.

    Adora keeps walking. There’s no way Catra would choose to be here.


    ________

    Adora has never had much interest in the Etheria program, a virtual reality simulation in which those on the verge of death and dementia can relive their glory days, dancing side by side with the consciousnesses of the deceased — but when she runs into a familiar face while visiting a dearly departed friend, she finds herself tumbling back into a romance she thought she had lost decades ago.
