    Summary

    Taako sweeps himself into the common area of the Starblaster with all the drama and panache that he reserves for alternate Tuesday afternoons. Barry ignores him with all the practice he has from a decade of alternate Tuesday afternoons.

    “I’m exhausted,” Taako whines, draping himself across Barry’s shoulders, the sharp point of his chin poking into Barry’s collarbone. “I’ve been up since for-ev-er, working on this dumb transmutation thing for Lulu.”

    “Go meditate, then,” Barry says, absently reaching up to pat Taako’s head.

    “Meditate?”

    “You know, meditation? Isn’t that, uh, one of your elf things??” Barry finally looks up from his book, barest hint of a wrinkle in his forehead. Taako shakes his head.

    “Never heard of it, homeslice. Musta skipped that day at elf practice.”

    Barry laughs.

    “Elf practice, sure.”

    Summary

    She doesn’t have the right to forge any kind of relationship, and she’s well aware of it. And while she refuses to feel guilty about what she did, she doesn’t exactly feel good about it either. (Lucretia, and the time alone.)

    Summary

    Taako is missing, but does it matter? When the world is your home you can feel at ease anywhere. When your brand is your name it’s nice to be recognized, to be wanted. But not like this. He never wanted this.

    Summary

    "Then you don't know me," Taako says. "Because I don't give a shit. About other people."

    "You saved the world," Magnus insists a bit pleadingly, with a quality Taako quietly resents.

    "It was a job, bubbeleh," Taako shrugs. His voice wavers, for just a moment, before Taako wrestles it back. "Just a job."

    ---------

    Life is short and some people keep rushing through it.

    Summary

    "Please hear me out," the pants say, urgently. "M'names Barry. I've been trapped in these pants for fucking decades."
    Sildar pauses. The voice sounds so sad.
    "This has literally nothing to do with me," Sildar says. "I guess I can take you to the university, if you want?"
    "Nonono, they'll just destroy me," Barry says. "Maybe, uh, don't do that."
    Sildar pauses. "...Are you a lich?"
    The jeans are silent for a moment.
    "No-oo," Barry says.
    "You're a lich," Sildar says flatly.
    "Yeah, okay," Barry admits. "But in my defense it was an accident."
