    Summary

    "You don't owe me anything," Magnus says quickly. "You're my friend and you were in trouble and protecting that button clearly wasn't working – really sorry about that, by the way – and I couldn't just stand there and do nothing!"

    Taako is staring at him. He doesn't quite slump, just holds himself at different angles as the indignation slinks out of his posture to be replaced by bewilderment. "I'm your what?"

    Summary

    The questions are almost always mundane, is the thing. Never even capital-c Compelled from him. Just—questions.

    (The first one, Martin remembers quite distinctly, was what’s your favorite color? He’d burst out laughing, and Jon had frowned at him, corners of his mouth pulling down comically. Serious question! Jon insisted. I wanted to know! Martin had kept on laughing even so, and Jon had swatted at his arm, fighting back a smile himself. Fine! Suit yourself! I didn’t want to know anyway, then!)

    (Eventually he’d told him it was an autumnal, muted orange, and Jon had sat back, a satisfied smile tugging at the edges of his lips. Good color, he’d remarked. It suits you. Do you want to ask me one now? Martin had been confused, which he’s pretty sure was reasonable. Does it work like that? Jon squinted at him, raked a hand through his own hair, frowned again. Does it—Martin, of course it works like that.)

    Summary

    Peter’s wrong, of course. When it’s all over, Martin does still want to tell Jon everything. It’s just—well, there’s a few things they need to work through first before they can get there.

    Martin and Jon find each other again in Scotland.

    Summary

    The singer croons something about money and other women. Akira looks at Goro and thinks about cheesy pickup lines. Hey babe, those clothes look nice. They’d look even better on my floor.

    (Seven years later, they're at a jazz lounge, and Akira's been waiting too long.)
