    Summary

    Every day brings with it a fresh batch of work, and a man throws himself into his bed late at night without having completed what he had expected to do; then in the morning he hurries to the unfinished task of the previous day. Life goes, and there is no time left to think, no time to consider the direction that one's life is taking. - Pyotr Kropotkin, Memoirs of a Revolutionist

    Nile and Booker meet up mid-exile, get into productive trouble, and go on a journey (metaphorical and literal).

    Summary

    It was about four minutes later that Nile was forced to confront the fact that, perhaps, it had not been her mother that she’d followed out of Gymboree.

    Nile Freeman is eight years old, and she is lost in the mall. These two things are not entirely unrelated.

    Summary

    When they get the first dreams, none of them can make sense of it: darkness, an enclosed space, the smell of earth and old, stale air. No useful clues or even meaningful stimuli to use in figuring out who they’re dreaming of or where they are. The dream remains similarly opaque for the first week, and the frustration grows as they come no closer to understanding. Nile, the most sensitive of the group, gets the impression of terror, and Joe hears a voice screaming a name: Bruce. The name, unfortunately, means nothing to any of them. All of them notice that the subject of the dreams suffocates a couple of times. They don’t really talk about it.

    ((AKA Jason is one of the Old Guard and that's why he comes back, with the addition of Talia being a good mom and Jason meeting Damian in his time with the league, because I love that trope.))

    Summary

    Summary

    “Nicolo would never risk the fates of children over his own.”

    “And look where that got him!” Andy roars, her throat burning with a desperate rage that has nothing to do with the pills, and right there, in that precise moment, she watches, devastated, as the words carve ruin into Joe’s grief-stricken face.

    She hears the tiny intake of Booker’s breath, sees the even tinier lift of his shoulders towards his ears.

    *

    An Old Guard, incomplete, and how they find each other again.

    Summary

    Nile’s seen a lot in three hundred years. Some of it terrible, some mundane, and sandwiching it all together was some pretty good stuff.

    The hoverboards promised in the eighties took a lot longer to come around but she'd argue they were better suited to zipping between biomes on Mars anyway. The sea levels did rise. They never did get their third World War. And when the Antarctic gained its first metropolis, Nile got her chance (and future bragging rights) to slide down the side of an icescraper with only her crampons.

    Perched on the end of those three hundred years with the warmth of another sun on her cheeks, Nile finds there's still one question she just can't seem to shake.

    "I don't get it. I don't."

    "What don't you get?" asks Booker.

    She minimises the initial star map of the uncharted sector they’ve finally reached after four earth-years of travel and drums her fingers on the blank tabletop. "You know. It. "

    Summary

    Quỳnh should feel sorry, for making them help Booker while she keeps a tight grasp on her Andromache. 

    She should feel sorry, and in a way, she is. 

    But she won't apologize, not when she knows she was doing something right.

    [OR : Quỳnh is out of her iron-maiden, and she vows to show Booker why he should never have hurt Andromache. It's a sort of therapy, although Nile strongly disagrees with it.]

    Summary

    - It fucking burns, hearing that they've so easily accepted Copley into the fold, when Booker's sentence is exile, is missing out on whatever years Andy has left. But then again, Copley hadn't necessarily betrayed them, just provided Booker the means to do so. -

    Booker drinks, gets a job, sort of just...ends up with a boyfriend, and finds his family again.
