hazel: all our plans are useless indeed
Thomas’s back and knees creak alarmingly when he gets out of bed these days. He’s still an early riser, up with the birds, but it’s getting more and more tempting to stay in bed where it’s warm and comfortable, to perhaps hint to Molly that she could bring him breakfast on a tray and he could rise afterwards, perhaps even start work at a later hour.

He doesn’t. He is the last wizard of London and he doesn’t know what will happen when he dies.

Dense and varied nonlinear character study of Nightingale through the years. Really great Nightingale POV.

sour_idealist: Oh Children, Rejoice
She finds an old man just past the edge of the Citadel.

She waves to him, pulling her hood back. “Hello, stranger,” she says, moving forward; she has a knife at her waist and a whistle at her throat, so she can greet him without much in the way of worry. “We await one like you.” She raises her hands above her, fingers pointed.

“What?” He lurches forward, grabbing at her wrist; he lets go the instant she pulls back, folding his hands in front of him. “Why are you making that sign? Immortan Joe’s sign?”

“The Immortan?” She blinks. “What’s he got to do with anything?”
