    Summary

    Dip wakes up, but upright, cramped, aching, and confused. They’re not on the couch were they fell asleep. They’re huddled in the dark of their coat closet, in front of the utilities panel. The song from their dream still echoes in their head, and no matter how much they try to shake it out, it doesn’t fade.

    ----

    Dip doesn't want much- just for their family to stay intact, but if there's a word that describes their life, "lucky" isn't it.

      Bookmark Notes:

      This is a lovely exploration of both what tempts people into working for SAO, and what drives them away from it. Gorgeous dream sequences, and a consistently tense tone all throughout: the interactions are a gorgeous mixture of just sparse enough to keep you feeling as off-balance as Dip does throughout the fic, and just substantial enough to let you make an immediate connection to the characters.

    Summary

    “My name’s Anya. And I don’t reckon I know yours,” she says, and her voice’s small, small, small in the tincan of her room. “But I don’t care. Fact of the matter is, I’m scared, and this is - this is real fucked up, ain’t it? I ain’t supposed to be scared. I’m thirteen. And I shot someone. And - maybe it ain’t fair, but - I wasn’t scared any until you folks started talking. I didn’t know there nothing to be scared of.”

    She’s never managed sugary sweet, not even one day in her whole life, but that’s okay, Anya thinks. She isn’t like her mama, but maybe she can be like the mountains, instead. They flake, sometimes, big old showers of stone and shale. Used to be, folks said, they’d even shake. But they’re solid under all of that, the Blue Ridges, and she can be, too. “CHORUS - maybe you’re saying all these things, but at least, they’re our family. We didn’t know they were doing anything, until you started talking.”

    “What’re you, except trouble?”


    Red Acre, Virginia is one of the safest towns in the National Radio Quiet Zone. There's no drama, no secrets, and certainly no mysteries - which is why when Anya Littlefeather stumbles across one, she's determined to solve it.
