templemarker: generation kill: two soldiers watching artie rain on a city (when the world ends)
Combination of States
by templemarker

Notes: This story has been on my mind for almost exactly a year. It's plagued me with insecurity and rewrites and not a few sleepless nights; it's been the fodder for countless analyzations over coffee and one particularly memorable three-hour car ride in which it was dissected to abstraction. This story is but half the story I want to tell; but it is the story that I have.

With thanks to everyone who has ever listened to me go on at egregious length, including [livejournal.com profile] dine, [livejournal.com profile] thessaliad, [livejournal.com profile] marcolette, and [personal profile] callmesandyk.

This is the penultimate part of the agentverse, which is as much an expression of an idea as it ever was a plot. So, here's my suggested reading order, with the caveat that the order is thematic, not chronological, and shouldn't be considered to take place in the same linear time. You do not need to read any of the following stories to read this story.

Only Inaction
field expediency
an ability to improvise
for the criticism of one (deterrence and provocation)
a liar, a lover, a brother in arms


You can also read this story at livejournal or on my archive.

Twenty years in the service, twenty-four embracing military life, and that devotion had only ever been tested once. )
