Based on the life of Alan Turing - a mathematician, code-breaker and pioneer of computer science.

In 1938, he began working for a secret British organisation called the Government Code and Cipher School. He helped the government decipher the German Enigma machine. He designed a machine - Bombe - that successfully decrypted the German war codes. In 1945 he was given the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services.

Post-war he turned his attention to another sort of machine, and in 1949 he developed a body of work that became the basis of artificial intelligence. In 1951 he was named as a fellow of the Royal Society.

In 1952, he was tried and arrested for being a homosexual (then a criminal offence). To avoid prison, he accepted treatment through injections of estrogen for a year that were meant to neutralize his libido. All his security clearances were also withdrawn.

He died in 1954, he committed suicide.

i keep thinking about this moment it’s so important. 

yeah, you could absolutely write off simon’s shell-shocked reverence here as part of the supposed revelation that kieren is the first risen, but i think it’s more than that. i think even more it’s about what’s actually happening between them, which is:

1) he did the makeup and the contacts and the awkward family lunch, all after laying it on the line for kieren, that he wasn’t trying to convert him, or trick him, that he really would do whatever kieren asked of him, and here is kieren in silent apology telling him he did good, he did right, but he was wrong to ask in the first place

2) up until this point, simon’s seen kieren stand up to him, but only in the way that denies him or refuses his supposed missions or morals about the undead. now, simon’s seen kieren stand up for himself, to other people, but in a way that affirms his — kieren’s — own experience as a person (living or dead or undead) as valid, as important, as not a joke, or a biblical pawn, but as his own life

3) this is probably literally the most simultaneously innocent and intimate thing that has ever happened in simon’s life, tbh. jesus christ when do you think was the last time anybody looked at simon monroe like that. more importantly, when was the last time anybody touched simon monroe like that.
