4 Works in Red Valley (Podcast)
One of the few things delivered from Gordon's flat to the Red Valley Seed Vault is a poster. On the poster is a scientific diagram of a skull. Gordon stares at this poster when he needs to think. Gordon thinks he thinks too much.

There’s something about working for a group of people who you know, if given the opportunity, would kill you if you said the wrong thing or talked to people about the job you did at length. Now it really wasn’t a problem for Gordon, not really. He didn’t really have any friends, work friends maybe, but that was about the most of it. Well had work friends would be the better thing to say now. There was Warren. Could that really count though? They knew each other for all of a few weeks. Gordon sits back in the uncomfortable chair at the desk he had, picking at his cuticles as he thought about everything that happened so fucking fast, and he hated it all, just a little bit.
Warren Godby can't remember anything about his life before a year ago. He reads books, does his memory exercises, and gets a job at a quiet coffee shop. All he wants is his life back. Until an eccentric stranger named Gordon shows up and orders an absolutely appalling coffee.
"Okay look, imagine you’re in prison, right?”
Warren sighed. “Okay, sure.”
“You’re in prison, probably for murder or something-”
“Whoa, hey, hey, why murder? Why can’t I be in prison for like… tax fraud or something?”
