Thank you to my amazing betas: [personal profile] lilacsigil and [personal profile] musyc. You guys were awesome and got me from "I want to write POI Sentinel/Guide fic with soft face touching" to actually getting it posted.

Title is from the Elton John song. ("Subway's no way for a good man to go down.")

Summary: In 2001, Harold advised on a project called Cascade, not knowing he was a Guide himself. Years later, he and John, a Sentinel on the run from Cascade, must help Shaw, who has just lost her own Guide when the Project turned on her. Complicating matters is Root, searching for Harold's Machine and interfering with their rescue of Shaw.

This was amazing, thank you for writing this! I love how you intertwined Harold and John's past to Shaw and Root's present, and then Root's reaction to Shaw's 'dying'. She really is so in trouble and I love John recognizing it and kind of teasing Root too.

Also, its been a while since I watched Sentinel but this brought back memories!
