Continuity isn’t that important. I’ll tell you something that’s important:

We meet in out-of-the-way moments. There’s a bridge in Prague under which, September 9th 1910, you should come have a drink. If you don’t mind the cold. The river’s very dark that night.

We’ll take you shopping afterward, 33.4.7321, on the Ledge above Saturn. You’ve got a choice: you get yourself one nice suit, or you find a moment in an abandoned palace and build yourself a closet. It’s better to travel light. Don’t worry. You’ve got a line of credit there.

We’ll take care of you.

    I kind of get it, but the tone goes over my head. Is this an informal job offer from one time traveller to another? Or is it a time traveling crime syndicate welcoming a new member? Or maybe the “we” is such a powerful entity that it blurs the distinction, like a monopolistic megacorp.

    This is why I love brainharvest. I might be able to squeeze more thinking out of some high-lit story mag, if I felt like it, but this quick-and-dirty badass place is the only place that DEMANDS I think with every single story.
