    Summary

    Because civilization is a specific code of social interactions, and because Opal isn't in a dream anymore, civilization has to occur.

    But a year of kindergarten doesn't teach precisely what one had hoped.

    (or: Opal is sent to school)

    A really interesting character-piece.

    Summary

    When someone touches you and it’s the first time that you’re being touched, do they stumble upon places on you that make you sing or do they form them like points on a map? He wants to say, does Adam discover those places on the insides of his arms, or do those places exist because they were kissed into being first by Adam?

     

    Over the course of a handful of fortnights, Ronan comes back to himself, and Adam.

    Summary

    "If I had to have magic ritual sex with someone," Blue said thoughtfully, "Ronan would be near the top of the list."

    "That is less helpful than you seem to think it is," said Adam.

    “...you'll end up with more than when you started.” Exactly.

    Summary

    It wasn’t a night terror after all, but it still stopped Adam dead in his tracks.

    It, straight out of Ronan’s dream, was peering back at Adam with murky blue, Henrietta deep-set eyes.

    (In which Ronan accidentally dreams himself a baby, which looks oddly like Adam.)

    Summary

    Ronan's lungs feel tight. He’s not actually worried about what any of these idiots will think of him for being who he is. It’s just that it’s none of their fucking business. It’s that Adam’s whole survival plan hinges on going unnoticed in most places. Ronan knows that accepting the kindness of the ticket is a big step for him. Accepting Ronan himself is even bigger. It seems selfish to push for more. Also, dances are still stupid.
