    Summary

    What Horatio wants to do is shield Hamlet’s eyes from a world gone terrible and tell him to be silly again, have him listen and have him next look at Denmark the white of their youth, washed clean of stains like something waiting to be coloured with good things, better things, anything but this.

    What he does is stare at the dirtied cuff of Hamlet’s sleeve and mourn how he is allowed dirt now – how they’ll allow the prince gone mad anything, now that he’s been denied everything that matters.

    Tread lightly, Horatio, he tells himself, and maybe you’ll make it to the end of the night.

    Summary

    A train window rattles cold against a cheek. The black eyes are half-open but too alert to drowse. One hand has folded itself over the top of a damaged suitcase, pressing hard enough to leave creases on the thinly-mittened palm. The legs are dark brown and tired, well-used, jutting out from under a hand-sewn skirt and folding down into beige socks and battered boots. The heels of the socks are clean but threadbare, and the jacket has been ironed but bears stains of years. Lying over the jacket is an anomaly, an expensive cloak of rich green wool. The other hand, ungloved, twists in its warm fabric, worrying thick threads between its nails.
    The traveller’s eyes flick open, staring keenly at the passing trees. The countryside of Germany is lit by a full moon, parting into towns and steeples on either side of the charging train. The clatter of wheels on tracks fills the traveller’s mind, lulling her even as it heightens her anxieties. She is headed North, into bitter cold and bitter mourning. The King of Denmark, her dear friend’s father, has died.

    Summary

    “I heard nothing from you for so long, and now that you’re here, I wish you hadn’t come,” Saavik says flatly. She wipes her eyes, understands that her logic is unstable. “I will be in Amanda’s garden if you need me.”
    “Wait.” Spock's voice stops her as she turns.
    Saavik makes no verbal response to the command.
    “Is there any way-”
    “No.”
