    “Who… What was that?”

    “A Stranger,” Sasha replies, voice tired and still unsteady. “Not Jon. But you are, aren’t you?”

    Summary

    Gestalt [n]: A whole perceived as more than the sum of its parts.

    There are a number of reasons for which Jon picks this memory: that it is a safe moment, that there is no fog outside the windows crowning the little couch in their safehouse, that the golden light of a rare cloudless day in the Scottish Highlands haloes Martin's hair. But mostly it is because Martin is sleeping. He is not singing, he is not laughing softly at one of Jon's jokes, he is not making tea; he is not doing anything at all. And it is a moment like this, Jon thinks, that Martin most needs to See.

    Summary

    One autumn afternoon at the end of the line, Caleb Widogast gathers up his spell components, his notebook, the knowledge of a full lifetime, and throws himself back.

    Over the next three years, he seeks out old friends. Friends that do not know his name. He helps each of them, in turn: telling a story, saving a life, intervening for divine favors long owed. And in the meanwhile, he nudges them closer to Trostenwald, and to each other.

    -

    They are his family, and he would do anything for them.
