    Summary

    You hate seeing the stars now. They are a bitter reminder of things you’d rather forget, and they put a sliver of pain in your chest every time you look at the night sky.
    So, naturally, you are sitting out on your balcony, in the too-large apartment you got with all the money from Goddard, watching the clouds shift over the black and the prickling lights above.

     

    Or: what if Jacobi had died instead?

    Summary

    Kepler had pulled him into the space as soon as they'd heard the footsteps approaching, and why exactly there was a supply closet in this office Jacobi didn't know but he could only be intensely grateful in the moment.

    Then, he registered the reality of the situation.
    --
    Jacobi and Kepler get trapped in a closet. Thoughts are thought.

    Summary

    Hermann has found that life in academia isn't what he pictured when he was a young child advancing through school at a quick pace and dreaming of the universe. Tendo convinces Hermann to move to a new town to open a bookstore cafe after he's denied tenure for the second time in his life despite being well accomplished. There Hermann finds that living a simpler life without academia isn't so bad and that there are things wonderful things to be found even in small towns.

    Newton's a park ranger who is likely too smart for his own good with numerous degrees in forestry, veterinary sciences and biology thanks to his early start at universities at a young age. After drifting for a few years uncertain what he wanted to do he discovered that life as a park ranger allowed him a certain freedom other careers lacked. When a new bookshop opens up in the empty store front that the locals joke about being cursed since Hannibal Chau lost it due to some shady activities Newton bets it will be closed within months. Little does he realize he'll quickly hope the place is there to stay.
