    - a story in which a transmale, somehow-Jewish, grieving, smug Hermann Einstein becomes utterly captivated by one of his teacher's unbelievebly tall grandson, or :
    - a story in which it's not any easier to be the partner of Jonathan Brewster than in any other story, or :
    - a story in which living through the Weimar Republic and its share of aspiring Nazis gets a hell of a lot harder when you happen to be very much queer, or :

    Hermann Einstein and Jonathan Brewster have a lot of business together.

    Summary

    Jonathan and Dr. Einstein were not kids, and they were definitely not in love. Their relationship was weird in a way where everyone was a bit confused over what they were- it was clear that Jonathan scared Dr.Einstein, but at the same time, he constantly praised him on his work. In truth, Jonathan liked only one person besides himself, and that was Einstein. But no one was sure just in what way Jonathan liked him.

    Summary

    Jonathan Brewster is in jail, Teddy and the aunts are off to Happy Dale, and Halloween is over. Hermann Einstein has reasons to believe he can now live a happy life, entirely Jonathan- and stress-free as the merrily intoxicated surgeon he is.

    Yet maybe no one should count their chickens before they're hatched, and maybe, just maybe, he shouldn't count his psychopaths either. Having one on your trail is bad enough as it is, but more than one - certainly is rather untoward. He guesses that's what they call fate.
