    Summary

    Max is immortal, and not exactly human, and the apocalypse is mostly just a PTSD-inducing inconvenience for a man who can't die. The world has ended, and that means the things that were buried by Humanity are coming out of hiding again.

    AKA: It's some weird nonsense mythology but everybody lives and trees come back.

    Summary

    “I wanted a choice.” His hand lingers on her diaphragm, steadying her furious, heaving breaths, and there’s nothing but defeat left in him as he says, “I wanted a choice for you and me, Andy. For us to move past all this fucking violence if we wanted to.”

    Andy scoffs, and winces as Booker moves lower, closer to her wound. “And do what?”

    “You really don’t remember, do you?”

    When Andy finds out the truth behind Booker’s betrayal, it makes her take stock of the past she’s left behind and the legacy ahead of her. She has a choice to make—one that becomes even more difficult when she comes face to face with Quynh again, and finds Booker tortured by her hand. A choice between living life between cycles of violence or carving out some semblance of normalcy.

    Andy has left her mark on countless lives across the millennia, but the thought of leaving a bit of herself behind scares the shit out of her.

    Summary

    Ginny's season ends, but not because of a stupid fielding injury. In the aftermath, relationships - platonic and otherwise - will be tested, strengthened, and burned to the ground. Picks up about mid-way through 1x10. Canon compliant-ish up to that point with the exception of Will and Amelia, Tommy and Robles. In this universe, Will blamed Amelia "having it out for [him]" on her being worried that he would replace her again. So the two of them have both continued lying to Ginny about the June incident. Also, Tommy didn't get traded, because I love his relationship with Ginny, and I want to keep him. So someone else was traded for Robles (any of the many ballplayers whose names and faces we never saw or cared about).

    I should probably rate this M for gratuitous usage of f-bombs, but I'm not going to, because I'm a horrible person who doesn't believe we should be clutching our pearls every time someone says f*ck, especially not in the year 2020. And honestly, teenagers who have to be teenagers this year deserve the freedom of saying f*ck whenever the hell they want. So... you've been warned.

    Summary

    Sobriety will not stop the dreams.

    It takes him a while to remember that he’s no longer the only one dreaming of Quynh, and that’s what breaks him.

    He sobs and curses and breaks a window before he decides that is enough. He thought of his family, the nightmares they were doubtless suffering from now. Because of him.

     
    OR

     

    Booker gets his shit together and realises he needs to find Quynh in order to get himself a good nights sleep, so he does.
    Canon divergence from after the group exiles Booker.
