    Summary

    What’s wrong?” It came out a little too fast and a little too high pitched. “Strand?”
    “I don’t- I don’t- ” The audio on the call crunched and distorted for a second, so loudly that Alex flinched away from the phone.
    “You’re breaking up. Is everything okay?”
    The static persisted for a moment, before Strand’s panicked voice cut back through. “<-car broke down. I- I don’t know where I am, I don’t … I don’t know how I got here!”

    Summary

    The thing with quantum entanglement is that two particles being so dependent on each other that they refuse definition without the other is dreadfully inconvenient.

    OR

    Summary

    Simon Reese was sitting knee to knee with her. His eyes, the same eyes that had unsettled her the first time they met, were fixed on her face.

    'Simon?’ she choked.

    Simon's eyes didn’t leave her as he reached out and knocked once on the coffee table. Then his face split into a grin. It was a nice, normal smile but it looked wrong on his face. His gaze was as direct as ever.

    'Just kidding,’ he said.

    Summary

    What happened to Richard Strand pre Alex Reagan’s 11 phone calls.

    Little soul,
    you have wandered
    lost a long time.

    The woods all dark now,
    birded and eyed.

    Then a light, a cabin, a fire, a door standing open.

    The fairy tales warn you:
    Do not go in,
    you who would eat will be eaten.

    You go in. You quicken.

    You want to have feet.
    You want to have eyes.
    You want to have fears.

    Jane Hirshfield

    Summary

    “So...is Happy Father’s Day appropriate?”

    Alex Reagan set his tea down and sat beside her research partner, his features focused on the paper in front of him.

    “Hmn?” He checked something off on the paper he was working on. Raising his gaze, he blinked at her owlishly and Alex snorted - amused. Richard Strand always looked like he was surfacing from water whenever she broke his concentration.

    “Father’s day. I was just about to go call my dad and I figured - you know. Given the circumstances..."

    Summary

    Staring down an angry dragon goddess at the end of the world? Easy. Telling your much older partner’s semi-estranged daughter who’s your own age that you’re going to be getting married? Much harder than that.

    Summary

    “I don’t have anything on me,” Nic goes on, his voice picking up speed. “This is what I wore to bed wearing last night. It was really early in the morning. I was standing in the woods – walked until I found a trailhead. Got a ride to the ranger station from these two white hunter guys in their fifties with a confederate flag bumper sticker on their truck. The station is closed on Tuesdays, for some reason, so I borrowed a cell phone from these hikers. I told them I’d gone camping with my girlfriend and she broke up with me and ditched me here. I don’t know how I got here.”

    He shrugs, looking helpless. He’s distracted by Strand, who’s momentarily been struck speechless, moving his jaw up and down.

    Strand settles, eventually, on: “Aren’t you freezing?”

    ---

    Dr. Strand listens to Tanis. He has some reservations. As he gets pulled into the Black Tapes' orbit, he also gets pulled, or lets himself fall, a bit into Nic's.

    Set mid-season 2, about 205 to 209. Fits in with canon.

    Summary

    It's always strange to see someone you used to to be intimate with after a long time, and Alex fully expects Richard to be thinking about Coralee the night his wife re-disappears.

    He's not.

    He's thinking about Emily Dumont.

    Also, his hand's still on her thigh, and really, she can only try to parse one mystery at a time.

    Summary

    “Stop it,” Strand says, reaching for the lamp to steady it. His eyes flick toward the tall shadow hunched in the corner of his vision.

    The shadow, taller than a human being and vaguely shaped like a man, ripples with laughter.

    Summary

    It's late and Alex can't sleep. As usual. So it's sleep note time. Except there is a lot of banging going on from her neighbor's apartment and someone with an unknown number keeps texting her. Which was entertaining until they ratted her out and her phone rang.

    ~
    Silly little one-shot. Set late in the series I guess, but that's not really that important to the story.
