    Summary

    The first thing Epsilon opens is Wash's personnel file. Most of it is information that Epsilon can remember from Alpha, who'd been given access to every Freelancer's file. Epsilon scans it quickly, in case there's information in there that they had hidden from Alpha and doesn't miss the large gap in Washington's service history immediately following Epsilon's implantation.

    That should have been his first hint that something was deeply and terribly wrong.


    Epsilon realizes that something isn't adding up about what he remembers from his and Washington's time together, and goes to dig for the answers.

    Summary

    Things that Jaskier can remember about his family:
    -His mother stroking his hair, the soft murmur of her voice as he settled more comfortably against her. There was firelight and warmth and love.
    -A brief moment of triumph and then the feeling of weightlessness as his father lifts from the tree and cradles him to his chest. The steady rhythm of his heart in his breast.
    -Reaching up to the sky. He’s not sure what for. Possibly for his parents, though he knows that they are gone, that they have left him, that they are never coming back.
    -His grandfather’s stern visage. The knowledge that he doesn’t want him. that no one wants him. Being sent to temple school is honestly a relief.

     

    Jaskier is (unknowingly) a dragon and is (forcibly) adopted by Borch, post Rare Species.

    Summary

    After more than fifty years with Yaz in Sheffield, the Doctor has formed a web of personal connections. Her instinctual move, to disappear without saying goodbye and never return, would hurt a lot of people and disrespect her wife's memory. But old habits are hard to break, especially when you're more than 2100 years old.

    Summary

    Just as surely as she was attuned to the beats of her two hearts and the oxidation in her respiratory system, just as surely as she could feel her regeneration energy always thrumming under the shield of her skin, she could feel Gallifrey fall.
