    Summary

    Anger is burning in Lapin’s chest. It is bitter, and it is bloody, and it shines brighter than any Bulb the church might care to invent.

    Normally, he leaves his emotions be. He cannot afford to let feelings drive him forwards. Remaining logical is the only safe way to play the game of politics - and if you do not play it safe, you die. And if you die, then what was the point?

    But nothing about their predicament is normal. So, fuck playing the game safely. Fuck that.

    The world will not play safe with the lives of those he loves.

    ***

    In which Belizabeth Brassica is looking for a heretic, and Lapin confesses to his apostasy to protect the House of Rocks.

    Summary

    “This is the Magnus Institute, not a creative writing course at university. If that doesn’t agree with him, he can leave.” There was a thud and the sound of rifling tapes. “He can take his bloody tea with him.”

    Martin’s fingers tightened on the saucer. Oh.

    -

    Martin knows better than to talk about it. It's fine. He's fine.

    Summary

    He never thought that dying would be like this. He was dying - no use in denying it. He’d always thought he’d die quickly and painfully, maybe in a fire, most likely torn apart by some sort of monster. Not laying in a hospital bed in America under a frankly ridiculous alias. Not like this.

    Not like this.
