    Summary

    “It’s very nice to meet you,” said the erstwhile ice-cube. He had a warm, deep voice; unaffected by his long sleep as the rest of him. It really was spooky. Francis had looked up the daguerreotype: a rusted and pitted old thing, scanned into some museum’s system, taken nearly two centuries ago of a man who had hardly aged a day since.

     

    Francis Crozier, a grumpy history professor, is assigned to introduce a recently unfrozen Victorian naval commander to the wonders of the modern era. Sparks fly, and all that.

    Summary

    Crozier foolishly believed that the first Magpie case he was consulted on would be solved by the time supper was ready. He swept into Sir John Barrow’s opulent home, been directed to the man’s private collection, observed the empty space where prized swords once hung, the letter pinned in their place, the feather that had fallen to the floor.
    “You’re not looking for a magpie, gentleman,” he announced in that tone which had prevented his advancement at Scotland Yard ) as he held the feather between his thumb and forefinger. “You’re looking for a peacock.”  

    The Magpie, dashing gentleman thief, has been running rampant all over London, robbing society of their treasures and delighting the masses with his daring and charm.

    Private Detective Francis Crozier intends to stop him.

    Summary

    It is dark. The sun had set hours ago, leaving only the bright end of the lieutenant’s cigarette in its wake. You finished your own smoke already, having sucked it down to the quick almost immediately. 

    HALF LIGHT: You do that to everything. Consume it, destroy it, leave nothing after.

    VOLITION: Snap out of it.

    Summary

    YOU - You’re vastly overthinking this. No one cares about badge photos or puts any thought into them. You stand against a wall and a bored clerk tells you to hold still and don’t make that face, and you get it a week later. This doesn’t matter to anyone. Except you.

    CONCEPTUALIZATION - Because it’s taken on Significance in your mind. Now it's a symbol of all you've lost.

    ELECTROCHEMISTRY - And it's not a bored clerk taking your picture. It's Kim.

    Summary

    Kim gazes at the madman before him for a moment— a man who almost broke his body trying to save a ship full of people, who had pressed his mind into the hands of a stranger with total and complete trust, and who also just thoughtlessly offered a handshake to a Vulcan (one-quarter, but still) — and thinks ah, fuck it.

    -

    Lt. Kim Kitsuragi's transfer to the USS Parabellum is-- unfortunately for him-- not an uneventful one.
