    Summary

    “I mean, this whole, this whole thing, it’s kind of a shitshow,” says Merle. He sweeps his arm out to include the dining room, the ship, the marshy world they’d landed on that morning, and, well. Everything. This whole half-century, probably. Lucretia’s nightmares, maybe, though no, he doesn’t know about those and he doesn’t need to.

    “In all of this,” he says, “what have ya got? Just life, just joy, just, y’know, the little moments. Gardening and shit. Booze.”

    Summary

    (It's funny, he thinks, how he can set up a whole windy barrier around a house almost an hour away from civilization and they still try to get inside when they think the Empress is visiting. Of course, the worst are the tabloids convinced they're having an illicit interspecies romance and desperate for any photo they can take. Last week’s Enquirer had a cover story featuring an image of John screaming as tiny sea troll babies burst from his stomach. The tagline had read HUMANS TO HOST ALIEN OFFSPRING and John hadn’t even bothered to turn to page 2. Funny how the truth would have worried humanity more; it was such a good idea he’d talked Feferi out of telling them everything right away.)
