    Summary

    When M’Baku was eighteen and had grown taller than his father and his father’s father, he saw the golden city of Birnin Zana for the first time. The sun was setting over the mountain’s teeth, drawing harsh lines over the huge sculpture of a panther, prowling out of the rock.

    “What do you see?” his grandmother had asked.

    Even in the twilight of her life, Ngozi stood light-footed on the narrow stone ledge outside the tunnel inset to the sheer cliff. She wore a longbow strapped to her back and no other weapon. In all eighty years of her life no one had ever gotten close enough to her in battle to scratch her.

    “The city of our enemies.”

    Summary

    They've had sex, of course. A lot of sex, more than Sara really expected. Some of it has been in Sara's bunk on the Waverider, some of it in more creative locations. She's got a key to Ava's apartment - because of course Ava has a real apartment - but it's not because they're dating. It's just for emergencies.

    (Or, occasionally, because she's in the neighbourhood and she knows how much Ava hates surprises.)

    So maybe they had sex this morning, at Ava's place. Maybe Sara slept there the night before, because they arrived late and both of them were tired and Ava, guard down and a little drowsy, insisted.

    (Or: the world's most competitive strap-on sex.)

    Summary

    exulansis
    n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land. - The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

    --

    Five years ago, Rhys spent the night of his dreams with his number one celebrity crush, Handsome Jack. But the next time he meets his idol, Handsome Jack doesn't seem to remember him at all.

    Broken and alone after the fall of Helios, Rhys finds something he always knew he wanted but could never admit to himself: one of Handsome Jack's doppelgangers, working as a prostitute. Now, Rhys can live out all of his fantasies, and maybe work out some of the uglier feelings that experience had left him with.
