    Summary

    The door opens and Marisa is there, tousled hair and rosy cheeks, wearing her own shoes and Asriel’s gold Turkic dressing gown as if it were fashionable streetwear. The monkey launches himself away from Asriel’s body with enough force that his claws draw blood.

    “Why, what’s the matter? You all look as if you’d seen a ghost! I wanted something from my bag downstairs, that’s all. Oh, Thorold thought we might want tea, so I told him to bring some up.” She throws the monkey a look of icy condescension as she hangs up the robe, her bare skin as elegant as any dress. “Don’t be so dramatic,” she reproaches him. “See, you’ve frightened them.”

    If she ever thinks I need her, Asriel realizes, disturbed, she will look at me that way, too.

    Summary

    “When he shall die,
    Take him and cut him out in little stars,
    And he will make the face of heaven so fine
    That all the world will be in love with night
    And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

    -William Shakespeare

    Summary

    It’s her last year on the bench. She’s retiring at Christmas.

    And she’d have been happy - so, so happy - if she could've made it to Christmas without having to hear another word from either of them.

    For the @EOFicletPrompts over on Twitter: "Some things never change."

    Summary

    The keycard comes every year. Same time, same place, same hotel room. There is no catching up on the details of each other’s lives. There is no recognition of the passing of their days. There is only moments they froze time to touch one another for the ten years he was gone.
