I'm making dopey 'Oh you're so greaaaaaaat' faces at this Homeward Bounders/Magids fic. SO GOOD.

For the record, my name is Jamie Hamilton and I'm a Homeward Bounder.

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything like this, but I remember it being less intimidating. Of course, the last time, I was talking into one of Their machines, and it didn’t interrupt me to pick apart my story or laugh at me for not figuring out parts of it sooner - thanks a lot for that, by the way.

Where do you want me to start? You have a copy of the story of how we stopped Them from playing games with us - I left it with Adam. Did you find it on his world? After that, I kept wandering the Bounds, like I said I would. I visited Joris and Konstam first, and then Helen and Adam and Him, and I kept moving on. I tried getting back to them pretty often, though, so that they wouldn’t have aged much by the time I saw them next.

All sorts of interesting things happened to me because interesting things always happen on different worlds. That doesn't really narrow it down.

Homeward Bounders fix-it-ish fic <333333333

The first ten or fifteen years were about as bad as I was expecting. Everyone else had gone Home and they were all busy killing demons and making peace and publishing books and starting families while I was stuck on the same old round of one world after another and never a chance to settle down. Only this time I was doing it to myself, which you would think would make it better -- noble purpose and all that sort of thing, like you hear about in stories -- but really it just makes it all worse. Because you know you could stop any time you want, except you know what will happen if you give Them half a chance, so you just go on feeling like the worst kind of rat for thinking about quitting.

At least that's what I did.
