    Summary

    Lionel is the first, approaching Merlin one late summer afternoon as the sun slants through the dust in the stables and turns the air into heavy fire.

    I mourn, now that your house contains
    such fractured shadows.
    This wine you’ve handed me
    tastes sour. I joke and you do not laugh.
    When you speak, assuming my approval,
    I stare into discoloured
    depths of my glass, longing
    to get away...
    (Harry Guest, "Death of a Friendship")

    Summary

    We make choices everyday. What shoes to wear, which book to read. Whether to take that job or sign up for that course.

    When to save the world. When to save yourself.

    Every choice has consequences, every decision has a price.

    And, too often, we pay the price for someone else's choice.

    When they try to hang him, he floats.

    *

    They put him on the pyre at dawn.

    He doesn’t burn.

    Summary

    Storing the Winter Soldier at the same facility where they were trying to grow Captain America’s clone is probably not the wisest decision Hydra ever made.

    Summary

    Cougar only has himself to blame when he's captured during a routine smuggling run. One lapse of judgment is all it takes and suddenly he's being loaded onto a prison transport with a very bleak-looking future ahead of him. He's usually more careful than this.

    Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, Cougar can't find any opportunities to escape — not on his own, at least.

    Out of nowhere, one of his fellow prisoners — an overexcited, overly friendly man named Jensen — offers to help him out of his restraints, as long as Cougar promises to fly them to safety afterwards. Cougar knows better than to trust strangers, especially ones as weird as Jensen, but he admits that he might not have much of a choice. Unless Cougar wants to end up in jail, he's going to have to put his faith in this Jensen fellow.

    He sincerly hopes he won't regret it further down the line.
