    Summary

    *aka "his husband, his sister, and his brother in law."
    **aka "annoys his family"

    Taako is supposed to die on the 18th of October, 652 A.H. Taako knows this. Taako stole Kravitz’s calendar-slash-agenda and on 10/18/52, it is marked in red: “Take Taako home.” There’s an asterisk mark with the addendum, “buy flowers maybe?”

    Taako had grinned to see it.

    Summary

    There is a version of Taako who rarely stopped holding his sister's hand for the first ten or so years of his life, and a second version of Taako who couldn't look in a mirror sometimes because he looked at his own face and saw static and everything felt wrong and he never knew why. They exist impossibly in the same space, fractured pieces that don't quite form a whole person.

    Summary

    "You don't owe me anything," Magnus says quickly. "You're my friend and you were in trouble and protecting that button clearly wasn't working – really sorry about that, by the way – and I couldn't just stand there and do nothing!"

    Taako is staring at him. He doesn't quite slump, just holds himself at different angles as the indignation slinks out of his posture to be replaced by bewilderment. "I'm your what?"

    Summary

    It is sometimes said that death is just a strange new beginning. That's certainly true for Julia Burnsides.
