    Summary

    Booker had imagined his penance very differently. He’d been planning seventy or so solid years getting drunk in Paris, wallowing in his own guilt – nothing new there, he’d been doing that for two hundred years already – and then taking the final thirty to get his shit together enough to be…something, when he met the others again. Less detestable, maybe.

    Quynh had put paid to that notion, and he’d been hungover, unshaven and miserable when he’d seen them again.

    Unfairly, Joe has shaved since Booker had last seen him. To throw people off their trail, to keep anyone from recognizing him, to keep Merrick’s people from recognizing him, and Booker swallows that down miserably with the rest of his shame. The torment of Joe looking like that, younger and sharper and more furious with Booker than ever, is nothing Booker doesn’t deserve.

    Nicky still hasn’t even spoken to him.

    Summary

    "I'm sorry, could you repeat that?" Nicky asks.

    Booker startles. He hadn't been aware Nicky was even listening to him, he'd seemed absorbed in his book, hunched over the kitchen table and staring at the pages.

    "Uh," Booker says. "It was very cold in Russia?"

    "No, before that."

    Booker smiles against his own better judgment. "I was lucky to share a bed with my lover at the time, because it was very cold in Russia."

    OR: Nicky and Joe didn't know Booker was into men or they would have asked a lot sooner.

    Summary

    He just wanted to be loved. He just wanted affection from those he thought of as family, but he never received either. Nicky and Joe were too absorbed in their own relationship. Andy was grieving on her own, not wanting to let go of the woman she had lost over half a millennium ago. Desperate to see those who loved him and those he loved, he decided to turn himself, just him, in for experimentation. He requested Copley for one last mission, one last chance to do some good before he tried to figure out how to die.

    Summary

    "What was her name?" Nile asked, which made me look down briefly in my wine glass and think back.  I was thinking back to those flicker of moments in time that were but blissful and beautiful, and also tragic and painful.  Joe was a major part of my life, he was my life.  To look back at one point when I felt as though what I had with Joe was going to be in jeopardy.  But now, all I could do was be guilty of having those evil feelings.  I was a fool then, and when I thought there would be a moment, it slipped away.

    "Her name was Adaline,"
