    Summary

    It’s not perfect. His neck is strained and his wrist hurts just a bit from the way Minerva yanked, and he knows that they should talk again later about whatever it was that had her so melancholy earlier.

    But this destiny thing was never gonna turn out perfect. And with Minerva’s smile against his lips, Duck Newton knows that he finally wouldn’t trade it for the world.

    or

    Duck & Minerva heading back to Kepler for the reunion & doing a bit of thinking on the way
    (+Aubrey and her enthusiastic support of humans loving aliens)

    Summary

    Duck sees the arc of Minerva’s blade out of the corner of his eye and reflexively turns his head towards the movement. He watches her slide her weapon cleanly through the light being, a massive grin erupting across her face when she sees the distortion she’s caused.

     

    Fuck, I love that, he thinks, and then: Wait, what does that -

     

    And then Beacon shrieks in delight at the approaching aggressors, and Duck finds himself very thoroughly distracted.

    Summary

    Picks up an hour or two after the end of episode 28.
    Duck gets back to Kepler and has to deal with - all of it.

    I apparently was not emotionally wrecked enough by episode 28 so I had to make it worse for myself.
    Mainly Catharsis for me post ep 28 because I'm a sucker for grief/angst etc.

    Summary

    Duck doesn't know how to explain it without sounding like he's finally lost his mind. One minute: he's walking home from school, glaring at a letter home. The next: he trips on an invisible ledge, falling into black space that gleams almost indigo where the light comes in. And then: he's face-down in a puddle on the same sidewalk, twenty years old in another dreary West Virginian spring afternoon.

    So yeah. Crazy.

    (Or: Someone else takes destiny into their own hands earlier than Duck would like.)

    Summary

    “What does it matter to you, Duck?” Beacon asks. “What does one far away warrior’s death matter to a simple park ranger who made it clear that he never wanted to be a part of this in the first place?”

     

    Duck closes his eyes, breathes in, and holds that breath.

     

    “She was my friend, Beacon.”

    Summary

    Leo shrugs. “It’s just my old practice weapon from high school. The blade’s pretty old, but I cleaned it up and sharpened it last week.”

    “Okay, but. Why?”

    Leo averts his eyes and shuffles his feet. “It’s just been kinda hectic lately, what with the repairs to the store and all. Then I saw you practicing out here and it looked… kinda fun. I thought you might like a, a sparring partner or something.”

    Duck stares, open mouthed and unable to do anything about it. “You wanted to spar. With me?”
