    Summary

    “Listen- I really appreciate it but I’m not a talking-about-my-feelings kind of guy Madi.” Murphy paused to take a shaky breath. “Especially not with you. I'm supposed to be the one comforting you and protecting you. I promised Clarke and I-I won’t let her down. I can’t. Not again.” Murphy looked off to the side, unshed tears glistening in his eyes like waves yearning to crash.

    -

    Madi Griffin is kept from falling asleep by the sounds of Clarke's old friend, John Murphy, having a nightmare on the other side of the room. She decides that it's time to return the favor from when he helped her through a panic attack of her own earlier that day.

    Summary

    "They destroyed the way we were going to test the nightblood." He continues. "Raven said we could go to space- back to the sky, where we're from. She's a pilot, and a mechanic- the smartest person I know. So we got ready to go to space. But the rocket couldn't launch because of an issue with the satellite. Someone had to stay behind and fix it so they could lift off." 
    Madi looks at him, her mouth parted in shock. "You stayed?" 

    Murphy shrugs, suddenly feeling self-conscious. "I was the only one with nightblood." 

    "But you didn't know if it would work!" She cries out. Murphy shrugs again. 

    "But it did." He says simply. "Our radio connection- it broke during the wave. I call them every day anyways- just in case they can hear me. I can't hear them, though."

    alternatively, murphy's the one that stays behind to save his people, finds shallow valley and a daughter that comes with it. he still calls bellamy on the radio every day- it's enough to keep him going for six years.

    Summary

    “I need your help,” he says. Bellamy is good at things like this; pulling people in: he knows how they fit together, how to make them work cooperatively. “I have a tattoo,” he half-explains, not really wanting to get into it.

    “I’m not doing shit for Lexa,” says Bellamy, which, okay. Fair.

    “It’s not for the Commander,” says Murphy. “It’s for Raven.”

    Bellamy wipes sweat off his brow. “Okay,” he says. “I’m listening.”

    "He’s relentless; if he’s on board with you and he’s after what you’re going after, I think he’s a great soldier to have." --Richard Harmon about Murphy

    Summary

    Murphy has completed his mission, but is still stuck between the worlds of Skaikru and Polis. The Coalition calls on his services. Bellamy returns from his exile. Also Murphy can ride a horse now.

    ---
    Murphy is taken upstairs to a bedroom and given an assortment of warm clothes -- what are the chances Polis would give him twenty of these for wintertime, for the dropship? slim, probably, he doesn’t get to ask for payment for services rendered -- and given a crash course in How the Ice Nation Works. Here’s the gist of it: the Ice Nation is a monarchy, sometimes it’s called Azgeda for no reason, it’s full of ice and it’s very cold. Whatever. He’s got it down.
