    Summary

    “You’re awfully nervous for a man with nothing to fear.” Andrew has Neil in one hand, his cigarette in the other. One moment of inattention and either could be sent tumbling over the roof’s edge. Neil’s heart hammers so frantically that he’s sure Andrew must feel it through the hand bunched in his shirt, stuttering nervously like the beating wings of a sparrow. The frailty is an illusion; Neil has yet to meet anything that will stop it powering on, dragging him through the worst the world has to offer him.

    “You and I know there’s far more to fear in this world than death.”

    Andrew makes a noise several shades too derisive to count as laughter. “And what do you fear?”

    Neil thinks of a dark, musty room, and the steady drip of blood on tiles. “Eternity.”

    Summary

    The most shocking thing about the sight of Neil is how still he is.

    Andrew has seen Neil bloodied and bruised before. But even beaten to a pulp and beyond exhausted, Neil talks and twitches and kicks in his sleep, restless fucker.

    Now, Neil’s only signs of life are the shallow rise and fall of his chest and the steady beep of the heart monitor beside his bed. That’s all Andrew has to hold onto as he drags a chair from beside the window to the gap between Neil’s bed and the door and sits down.

    Andrew breaks into Neil's hospital room after Baltimore. (Inspired by this artwork by @himawarrior)

    Summary

    Blue touched Gansey’s faced. She whispered, “Wake up.”

     

    ....

    “You’re alive,” Adam said. Ronan didn’t know what time it was or what day it was, only that the world was purple and blue now, foggy and chilly enough that Ronan knew they would all be shivering soon. They were all still talking. He was going to hit something. He needed to put his fist through the wall. Something. Anything. Gansey was alive. What did that even mean now? Cabewater had given itself up for Gansey because he’d asked. There wasn’t a way he was getting out of this without losing something.

    Summary

    The idea, the hope, is something like a final farewell. Gansey finds what he thinks is a remnant of Cabeswater, and the four of them go to see what's left of the forest that loved them. One last adventure, while some magic remains.

    Two problems. The first is that there's a lot of things that they haven't talked about yet. Things that have had time to fester. Things that maybe make being alone as a group in a magical landscape not the greatest ideas.

    The second is that what Gansey's found isn't Cabeswater.
