    When all is lost and everyone you loved has died, what are you supposed to do? Seek solace in the freezing cold of space and the warm and clawed hands of an ancient god? That sounds about right...

    Summary

    Death was inevitable. It had to happen eventually. So, when the Mechanisms learned of their own individual, future deaths, nobody was surprised.

    What surprised the Mechanics was the fact not a single one of them mentioned Dr. Pilchard's planned revenge plot.

    Summary

    “OK, last call to tell me if video or audio is bad, because I’m about to pass the event horizon and I won’t be able to get out of the black hole when that happens,” Raph said

    Marius swallowed. It would be so easy to lie, to tell her to come back and repair her equipment. But he knew better. When she tried to fix it she would realize that he had lied. Not only would he be responsible for the purest betrayal in all their many millennia, it would at most delay the inevitable.

    Raphaella partakes in one final experiment, and she livestreams it for Marius

    Summary

    And so the Mechanisms died. One by one, in stupid, pointless ways that were never supposed to be able to bring down a Mechanism. Even the Toy Soldier, never truly alive in the first place, had stopped pretending, sitting lifeless in a cobwebbed storage closet, just like any abandoned toy. Except for Jonny. For some fucking reason, the universe had decided he wasn’t done yet. And so he wandered aimlessly through the cosmos. Alone.

    After all his crew has met their pointless, ignoble ends, Jonny comes across his creator

    Summary

    " Just before he leaves, Tim looks back at the crew, blows them each a kiss, and salutes them. They all gather on the bridge, watching him as he marches toward the gunship. There’s silence for about ten minutes, then a crackle of noise as the comms system of the gunship links up with Aurora. All that can be heard at first are the whirr of the engines and the echoes of gunfire as the ship lifts off and sets out on its rampage. And then Tim starts singing. It’s a war song, a battle cry, but it’s also a love song. A love song for a family, a home, peppered throughout by bursts of gleeful laughter. It echoes through Aurora, filling the space that has felt emptier and emptier lately, and the hearts of those who remain." -The Lives and Deaths of (Drumbot) Brian M. Lazarus by emmiebee

    This is a war song, this is a battle cry, this is a love song for the crew of the Aurora from their Master-at-Arms. This is Tim's Last Song.

    Summary

    Death was always a fickle thing. Too many times in their mortal lifespan they had almost died, and too many times they had met Death when they became immortal. Death had a name, besides his title. Laszlo found they had fallen for Death, and that he was an unfortunate man.
