    Summary

    A gamebreaking glitch tore the game session to shreds, right before they reached the end. Dirk Strider was already dead at the time. Temporarily. Which left him to revive in the aftermath. As the Prince of Heart, he doesn't have much experience putting souls back together, only breaking them, but at this point he seems to be the only one who even knows shit is broken.

    He's the last person who'd trust himself with this. Not when he's out of time, out of place, and over his head being responsible for a little brother, a life, and a body his conveniently dead asshole of a splinterself already, thoroughly fucked up.

    AKA: Dirk-as-Bro attempts to figure out wtf happened and how to fix shit, because that's what he does. But no Dirk has ever excelled when truly alone. Good thing he isn't.

    Summary

    The universe spits you out straight onto the roof where you entered the game, and you catch yourself with your face.

    --

    Davesprite struggles with being the Other Dave. Bro is back from the dead, and the Strider apartment is about two times too crowded for everyone involved. Reconciliation takes time and effort, and forgiveness is a thing to be earned.
    You have to try, and when that's not enough, you have to try HARDER.

    Summary

    In the end both Jack and the scientists had to compromise. Jack didn’t want to lose memories again, which meant they couldn’t just use the brain scans Nakayama had made. So, they scanned Rhys’s brain while Jack took his body over, and cadged that together with the scans Nakayama had used to produce the AI to begin with.

    Creating Jack’s body was every bit as difficult, because the fast travel stations and New-U stations auto-deleted their information every few hours to keep from filling up their memory, and the Vault Hunters had smashed the one nearest to the Vault anyway to keep Jack from using it. It seemed like they might hit a dead-end.

    Finally, Jack himself discovered scans of his whole body among Nakayama’s other Hyperion files. He wasn’t happy finding them, because the implications of why they were there were unsavory. But at least it meant the scientists had something to work with.

    Using those, programmed with Jack’s genetic code and the scans of Rhys and Jack’s combined brains, the science team digistructed a new body, removed the AI from Rhys, and hoped.

    It worked.

    Or at least, it seemed to.

    Summary

    It's not until the final resolution of DL-6 that Miles realizes how faded his world had become - visually speaking, that is.

    (An exploration that begins with colour, continues with grey-scale, then fluctuates between the two, but which mostly focuses on the paths between and the people who accompany him on the way.)

    Summary

    All three turtles felt their blood run cold at the sound of a sickening guttural *CRACK* from far...far beneath where they were hung.

    They froze, and the city seemed to fall silent, if only for a moment.
