    Summary

    In the wake of Walter White’s final act of revenge, Jesse Pinkman manages to escape a life of slavery and torture, but freedom is a long way off. With the DEA on his tail, Jesse desperately tries to stay two steps ahead of the law. However, things are never that simple. His former partner made many enemies, and Jesse finds a vindictive and relentless shadow doesn’t intend to let Heisenberg’s prodigy walk free. Whatever it takes.

    New Chapter Update: Jesse watches movies, gets to make choices, and heals up. But he can't bring himself to thank her.

     
    This is a sequel fic, but you do not need to read the first to understand it. Lot of chapters, I know, but they're short.

    Summary

    Albuquerque beat cop Mike Ehrmantraut can't quite bring himself to arrest Jesse Pinkman for a failed attempt at solicitation. Instead, he takes him to Waffle House, lets him sleep on his couch, and helps him look for legitimate employment. Little does he know that the kid could turn out to be the key in the Heisenberg case, provided they can come to trust one another.

    (A parallel universe exploring how some of the events of season 2 might have played out if a law-abiding adult had taken interest in Jesse's well-being.)

    Summary

    In Mike’s experience, coincidences don’t exist, and it was no coincidence that she was at the drop zone, duffel bag full of cash and surrounded by the bodies of Salamanca men. Despite Lalo’s increasing scrutiny and Nacho’s pursuit of answers, Gustavo Fring tasks Mike with indoctrinating the girl into their operation. Mike’s certain that his employer knows more about the girl’s traumatic past, and the mysterious enemy searching for her. As the days drag on, Mike questions his loyalties. Maybe it’s his own paranoia, or maybe he believes the girl is his second chance, his way to right his biggest wrong. But Mike will learn that’s something he can never do.

    It’s over. All chapters are posted. Thank you all so much.
