    Summary

    “My working theory is that her torturers wanted to make her as compliant as they could. Even once they realized there was no real information to be extricated, it was too much of a risk, having her hold any allegiances to known or suspected traitors. Such as Johanna Mason, or Katniss Everdeen,” she says. “That last propo would have been not long after they started the treatment. And in the time between that and our successful rescue of the Capitol, they would only have done more, and worse, and . . . rendered her unusable for any future propaganda in the process.”

    It’s like I’ve been dropped inside of a tin can. The conversation continues, behind and beside and in front of me all at once, and very muffled. What are they saying? And more importantly, what does it mean?

    “Unusable?” I echo, though I’m not sure how long it’s been since I first heard that word. “No-- what’s--?”

    Summary

    “Consider what’s at stake, Michael,” she pleads.

    “I have.” Michael’s shoulders straighten. “The lives of my captain and my crew.” Her mother opens her mouth to retort, but Michael preempts her. “Even if I were to reach Vulcan in time, against all odds, there would be nothing for me there. No mate. No ritual. Only death.”

    Summary

    It’s the next morning, her mouth bone dry and her stomach unsteady and Lup snoring under her cheek, that Lucretia remembers an oversight the size of a fucking planet. She squeezes her eyes shut and pictures it. Her journal, lying prone and unprotected on the side table in the living room, pen left where she stopped writing to mark the page where she went on a pathetic rant about the very girl sleeping beneath her. A girl who, for all her kissing and touching and cuddling, didn’t give Lucretia much more physical attention than anyone else as far as she could tell.
