    Summary

    She is beautiful. In all her chromatic aberration, all her afterimages, each recursion – in all her drifting symmetries, she is beautiful. Reaching up to run a quivering finger along the cool glass, she looks at herself like she has never seen a face before, and when a fifth hand meets her own, morphing and bulging out of the reflection, she lets it pull her through.

    Summary

    They find their way to the couch halfway through the statement. It presses down on him this time, legs tangled in his own, long and light and wrong. He thinks before the Stranger's failed ascension he would be more upset by this. By being this close to something that wasn't human.

    There's comfort in the wrongness.
