Carry On
Carry On is what happens after he's injured badly at the Battle of Ypres in late 1914. When he becomes aware of things again, he is a patient in a private room at the Temple of Healing and he feels awful.   It's not just his physical injuries - those are healing - but he can't think straight and he never has the same nurse for long. When Elen becomes his nurse, she realises something is terribly wrong with his care, and together they begin to sort out what happened, why he hasn't heard from his family, and what needs to happen.
Casting Nasturtiums
Roland speaks to Golshan Soltani once Golshan has arrived at the Gospatrick care home in Casting Nasturtiums. By this point, he and Elen have been married for several years, and he is working to offer better coordination of care and assistance following magical injury.
