Papier mache birds: Clare, one of the main characters, is an artist who works with papier mache and often immerses herself in work while Henry is time traveling. She makes giant sculptures that capture the strains in her relationship with Henry.

DNA: Henry is diagnosed with"Chrono-impairment," a genetic mutation that is passed down to his daughter.
