    Summary

    How many has it been again? Time isn’t sure—as much as he tries with his clocks and his calendars and his notebooks, keeping count of things has always been a struggle. It’s such a human disposition, as inconsequential to him as it is significant to them. But he knows, with certainty, that there have been many so far.

    Enough to capture his attention, anyhow.

    Summary

    The Time Engraver snaps his fingers. A laughing woman in a red dress, a cocktail in her hand, vanishes from his workshop with new crinkles around her eyes.

    Another snap of his fingers; another woman appears - and the workshop changes around him.

    Summary

    As far as time stretches, the Time Engraver has been content with his tower and workshop and one-sided discussions with those on whom he works his delicate craft – the small niche time carved itself simply for being, outside yet within its intangible, implacable nature.

    And then one soul sparks his curiosity.

    Summary

    "This is our new menu," Bai Yu tells him, for the first time, for the fifth, for the tenth. "Please take a look."

    Please take a look at me, thinks the Time Engraver. But Bai Yu's eyes hold no recognition - of course they don't. It's why the Time Engraver doesn't often walk the mortal world: he can speak to mortals, but the moment he is out of sight, they will forget. He does not belong inside time, and something in their souls knows it, rejects him for it.

    Summary

    "What am I supposed to do with you?" the Time Engraver asks, and hates the way his throat is closing up. He snatches up his burin, moves to apply it - the only thing he can do. The only thing he's good for, to keep time moving, to keep life in flow.

    This is his purpose. Time cannot stop.

    Summary

    The Engraver sees countless faces and bodies pass through his domain, each one unique -- at first. Over millennia they blend together, young turning to the old, eyes and noses and mouths repeating under his hands. And although the Engraver is supposed to be impartial, he begins to develop... favorites.

    In time’s eyes, no one is special, everyone falls beneath its hand. Even Time Engravers.

    Summary

    “Who are you? Where am I?” demanded the man.

    “I am-” He often spoke to the people he worked on, scolding or admonishing them, praising or encouraging them. They never answered. They certainly didn’t ask anything.

    He didn’t know what to say.
