    Summary

    She stays firm, and present and here, because she refuses to let herself become a ghost. Not with Jesper. 

    It’s just Jesper, she thinks, just Jesper.

    He’s harmless, she thinks, which isn’t strictly true, but he’s harmless to her.

    Summary

    jesper is slightly terrified that kaz brekker wants to have a conversation with him, of all things, but he's not exactly in a position to refuse. he is, after all, jesper's boss. technically.

    (AKA Kaz has his own terrifying way of doing official office conversations and Jesper thinks he's gonna die, and then spills his entire life story. You know. As you do).

    Summary

    The Ketterdam Guild’s annual dinner is held around midwinter, frost icing the streets like a silent menace. There’s a certain, specific joy in knowing that despite the best hopes of at least ten of the main Guild council, they’re forced to let him attend every year anyway.

    Summary


    Transcript from an unaired 60 Minutes special; intended release date: April 12, 2008.

     

     

    [...]
    COOPER: I’m told that, uh, historically, you did not get along with your father. Why do you think that was?
    VAN ECK: [Laughs.] Well, uh, my father was not a very...a very trusting man, to say the least; I think it was the Dutch in him. We never quite saw eye-to-eye where business was concerned, and I think because of this, he was very...reluctant to pass the reins.
    COOPER: Did that not upset you?
    VAN ECK: The man built his company from the ground up; I thought it was only natural for him to be...shall we say, possessive, and he had every right. Everything my family has now, we owe to him.
    COOPER: I think many would disagree, especially now that Van Eck Inc. has expanded into so many different, uh, sectors of the market. Wouldn’t--Don’t you think you owe your employees for your success?
