    Summary

    “I’m already dead, after all.” Gerry smiles, a mirthless flash of teeth. “If I pop out of existence tomorrow, fine. If I stick around for a while, well—at least now I’ve got someone to talk to.” His tone of voice is still blasé, but his gaze falls heavily on Jon, as though asking, Right?

    “Yes,” says Jon. “Yes, of course.”

    ---

    When Jon wakes up from his coma, he finds that while Gerry may still be dead, he’s not exactly gone.

    Summary

    “Come in, Martin,” he says, not looking up from his notes. 

    “Hi, Jon,” he says, and Jon stops writing at the sound of his voice. “We’re out of the green tea, but we’ve got lemon?” 

    Jon looks at him. Martin smiles at him in his usual tentative way as he sets the mug of tea down on Jon’s desk. Heat spikes so sharply in his gut that he twitches with it. 

    “Thank you, Martin,” he says, mouth dry, and he stands up. 

    “Oh,” he says, sounding almost surprised. He smiles again. “No-- no problem-- um, what are you--” 

    Jon takes Martin by the shoulders, leans up on the tips of his toes, and kisses him.

    “What does the Hunt taste like?” he asks. "Sorry, I didn't mean—"

    Daisy says, "Wind." She says, "Cold wind."

    Summary

    Judge Roberta Field eyed the next case on the docket balefully. She’d known it was coming. As soon as she’d seen it appear in her schedule she’d cursed and debated “breaking a leg”, since it had been too late to have another baby as a way out. She’d convinced herself that was too extreme, however, and lulled herself into a false sense of security that she must be misremembering and it wouldn’t be that bad. So she’d decided to keep working and let it happen. And now it was here.

    The Bouchard-Lukas divorce.

    Again.

    It had been three years since the last one, which had to be a new record.

     

    --

    Elias and Peter are divorcing again. In trying to decide the division of their marital property, they need some witnesses to assist their respective cases. This is unfortunate for Jon and Martin, who would really rather be elsewhere.
