    Summary

    Morpheus’s expression melts into unreadability. “Would you have come to my rescue again, Hob Gadling?”

    “Yes. God, yes, I would have. Of course, I would have."

    Hob learns where his friend has been, and even Dream of the Endless might, on rare occasion, need a hand.

    Summary

    Emhyr was looking at him for once, with a strange expression. “I have misjudged you,” he said, sounding irritated actually: how dare Geralt surprise him.

    “I get that a lot,” Geralt said.

    Summary

    Joe debates the relative merits of making a fuss and decides ultimately that his best bet is to just make sure it’s a party he himself enjoys and, ideally, Merrick doesn’t.

    Finally, when he realizes his lunch break is twenty-five minutes away and he’s wasted enough time thinking about this that he doesn’t want to actually start working on something real in what little remains of his morning, he picks up his work phone and dials the number Merrick dropped on his desk.

    On the second ring, a deep, pleasant voice answers, “Hello, this is Nicky speaking?”

    “Hi Nicky,” Joe says, twirling the phone cable around his finger. “I’m Joe. I’m supposed to help coordinate the holiday party with you?”

    In which Joe is coordinating a holiday party over the phone with a guy named Nicky who keeps praising Joe just a little too much for Joe to be casual about about it. Thankfully, the nice HR guy called Nicolò Joe emails sometimes says it’s okay to date coworkers.

    Summary

    "So, this… look you're going for," Lucius starts, testing the waters.

    Blackbeard stares at him with vacant eyes. Jesus. Lucius is viscerally reminded of the man's dead-eyed look before he pushed him overboard.

    "Does it feel like the right choice for you? Are we happy with it?"

    "Do you have a fever?" Blackbeard asks, voice hoarse.

    Lucius cocks his head and says, "Don't think so. Do I look hot?" He winks.

    Blackbeard lifts his hand and presses his fingers roughly against Lucius' forehead.

    "What are you—"

    "No fever," Blackbeard grunts and draws back. "Good. Didn't want to cut off your fucking hand."

    Lucius drawls, "I'm touched."

     

    Or: Lucius survives. For better or for worse.

    Summary

    Julian doesn't think about it much these days. Why should he, when it's been so long?

    But when he does, if he does, well—he considers it part and parcel of Garak, that's all. Disconcerting at first, a little invasive. Awfully close to a line but not quite crossing it, and leaving Julian with absolutely no idea what he's meant to do in response. Garak in microcosm, summarized in a single unexpected gesture.

    (Or: Julian has always thought Garak just had a weird little habit. Until another Cardassian does the same thing to him, and seems to imbue the gesture with a meaning Julian really had not anticipated.)
