    Bookmarker's Notes

    As Chekov and Spock close themselves into the physics laboratory, to find a cure in thirty days, Chekov remembers the year he spent at his grandmother's house in Murmansk, latitude sixty-eight degrees north. The entire month of June, the sun had never set, Chekov blinking sleepily at the bright windows at three A.M., but all of December had been darkness, a month-long unbroken night.

    Chekov realizes then that it's always night on the Enterprise, too. He hadn't thought of it, when Sulu was alive.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The cell is twelve feet by six and a half. He walks it until he is exhausted by the smallness of the distance. He divides it all of the ways that he can, but it still makes no sense. The extra half a foot is an act of peculiar and particular cruelty. He sinks down onto the floor and cradles his head in his hands. He has seen no jailors, and so his anger has no place to go. He seethes with it. His body is written in a language of tight lines. He rubs the back of his neck. If Sulu is dead, he'll never forgive himself. If Sulu is dead, he'll find a way to render this whole planet down to rubble and dust. It wouldn't be too difficult. Mass-destruction comes down to physics, in the end.

    He looks up.
    He looks up and she is already standing there.
