    Summary

    It’s Basira who catches onto it.

    The collective shift that seems to come over them when heading in or out of the Institute. Not just the oppressive sensation of being observed, their every move catalogued for the voyeuristic cravings of some unseen Eye(s). That feeling remained with them even when they left the Institute these days, but it was always stronger inside its walls. That wasn’t the change. Nor was it the point.

    The point was: making life worse for Jonathan Sims.

    Summary

    The sky has been looking back for days now. Theoretically.

    Days aren’t what they should be anymore. Not marked by a sun, so much as by how much Dark there is in the air at a given time. Clocks are a joke. Digital readouts turn into flailing sigils if looked at for too long and the hands of the old log cabin clock that had come with the house won’t stop spiraling around each other. Which is just as well, for the numbers have been replaced with twelve staring eyes.

    Jon can’t bring himself to care anymore. Not in a way that feels real and present. Not for anything other than Martin. He had cared for some while after the Change occurred. If he asked, he’s sure he could just Know how long that had lasted; his final vestiges of pure, raw horror and guilt before he had simply…switched off. As much off as he could make himself.

    It had been ugly for a time. Hours? Days? Who knew? Who cared?

    Hint: not Jon.

    Summary

    Hide is on a quest to learn more about ghouls and he isn't interested in the false picture the government and the media is painting.

    In a cozy bookshop he meets a young man named Kaneki who seems to be very knowledgeable about ghouls. Soon, Hide finds his interest split between researching ghouls and finding out more about Kaneki, but are the two areas really as separate as he first thinks?

    Summary

    “It’s just — I’d have kind of expected...”

    “That given the opportunity I will tear into you no questions asked, the way Georgie has when we first met up?” she asks, deadpan.

    “I — well —” he flounders. “You did ask Martin if he was holding my hand because you wanted to push me into that sizzling pool filled with definitely-not-water the other day.”

    “Because you were being annoying,” she just says.

    ...

    Melanie and Jon have a bonding moment of sorts, apocalypse-related circumstances notwithstanding.
