    Summary

    Imagine someone tracing back over your life and looking for the one thing that makes you stronger. The thing you couldn’t live without. The thing that makes you feel smarter, braver, kinder, funnier, more you. Simply MORE than you were before.

    Maybe someTHING is inaccurate. No, that should be someONE.

    Imagine someone found that person in your life, and they ripped them out. I don’t mean remove them physically, I mean rip them right out of your memories. Make it so you might as well have never met them.

    Are you imagining it? Yes? Good. Unfortunately Dan Howell doesn’t have to imagine.

    Now imagine being on the other side. Imagine that the person who matters most to you in the world, your best friend, the reason you are better, has no memory of you. Imagine them trapped and terrified and confused…and there’s nothing you can do about it. Well, almost nothing.

    Unfortunately Phil Lester doesn’t have to imagine either.

    Summary

    Thoughts come and go like waves on the sand. Standing on a beach on Aotearoa, it's hard to remember any time it wasn't sunset. It's hard to imagine any time the beach wasn't empty. Any time she wasn't alone.

    Summary

    Claudia Atieno does not like being put on a pedestal. Once people think highly of her, they don't work to understand her art. They assume, if they do not get it right away, that it is above them. They assume there is always some hidden meaning. But Roimata tries. She searches for intention, for purpose, and she asks the questions left unposed. If only Roimata knew all of this too...

    A sunny day at the beach. A future hinted at. These are the things Hester hopes are not dreams.

    Summary

    I know circuits, Hester. I know how electrons flow, I know charge and resistance and capacitance--I know circuits, and if you and I are a closed circuit when we touch, then maybe I do know you.

    Summary

    Oleta still gets things in bits and pieces. There is much she is missing that Hester is not. They try not to talk about memories from the Institute, but that couldn't last for very long.

    Summary

    I still wake up early. I know it even though I can't see the early morning light or go for a jog. All the lights at The Institute are on timers, on at proscribed times off at proscribed times. I always wake up before the lights come on...

    Summary

    I sat up, waiting until the night had swallowed up the stars, for you to come.

    You were coming.

    You HAD to be coming.
