    Summary

    Ridding herself of the habit of giving her full name is far more arduous than it has any right to be. It's the way it rolls off the tongue, you see: Sasha Rackett. Sasha Rackett who’s-asking. Sasha Rackett now-get-lost-and-forget-I-was-here.

    Summary

    At his desk, Jon closes his eyes. He waves a vague hand in the man’s direction. “This is Michael-uh, Mike Crew,” he mumbles. “Ex Altiora, Lichtenberg scars, tosses people off skyscrapers.”

    “Oh," Martin says. Recognition strikes a moment later. Like lightning, he thinks, and immediately feels tactless. "Oh. I see.”

    “I wish you wouldn’t,” Mike Crew says pleasantly. “I really just want to be left alone. It’s what I’m trying to communicate here, but it seems to go in one ear and out the other.” Again, Martin feels that awful swooping in his stomach, as if the floor is lurching away under his feet.

    Summary

    Martin’s curtains are open. Beyond the blackened silhouette of the building next door, he can just make out a sliver of skyline. Stars, winking as if at a joke he doesn’t understand. They seem so much more distant than usual.

    The man with the Lichtenberg scar is alive, seeking revenge for the Archivist's transgression.

    Martin is sacrificed.
