    Summary

    Tristan Beauregarde had once been the most beautiful, talented and well-regarded operetta singer on the continent. Royalty regularly fell in love with him. Other singers could only hope to imitate the rich timbre of his voice. Audiences flocked to his performances. He was at the top of the world.

    But that was almost twenty years ago and time had stolen all of that.

    Summary

    "There's no need for champagne, we've got loads on the plane," Merlin tells Eggsy, but it's not champagne he finds in the cabinet for their victory toast, it's his favourite Macallan - because saving the world, even at a cost he can't quite bring himself to imagine just yet, calls for more than the swill you drink at weddings.

    Not that it matters anyway, since he abandons both glasses he poured when Eggsy strides through the plane doorway with his chest heaving like some damsel in one of the tacky bodice-ripper novels Harry used to read when he was convalescing after injuries. He stares hungrily for a moment as if Merlin's an elaborately garnished kebab after a long night out drinking, and Merlin has just enough time to think with a sort of diamond clarity oh good lord before Eggsy's launching across the cabin to kiss him.

    Summary

    Most of the ships Malathi has made contact with are captained by bear-forms, big cat-forms, gorilla-forms. She once met a ship with a dolphin-form captain, and found it strange but charming.

    Dandelion is a rare outlier. She could form as anything at all. It’s odd that she wants to look human.

    Summary

    Olympia sits up and stares at her. “Bev. It’s been a month, and you’re still flooding the city four days out of seven. We can’t leave when you’re still like this.”

    (Peter is gone, and Beverley isn't coping well.)
