    Summary

    Aziraphale had been there for all of it. For the beginning, of course. For Noah. For Avraham and Sarah, for Yitzchak and Rivka, for Yaakov and Rachel and Leah. For Moshe and Miriam. For Mitzrayim. For the Desert Wanderings. For every temple, every exile, every pogrom, every suffering.

    And now, finally, it was his turn.

    Crowley was not, really, prepared for any of this - but, in the end, what was Ha'Olam without surprises?

    Summary

    “See you around.”

    “Yes.”

    Another ache. Where’s around for you? Mo Ran doesn’t know anymore. He hasn’t seen him at all this past year, for all the times he’s whipped around to double-check every lean, dark-haired figure in white crossing the periphery of his vision.

    “Do you—”

    “We’re heading out,” the nurse calls out, cutting him off as they start to wheel the trolley towards the exit.

    “Yeah,” says Mo Ran. “See you,” he says, tearing himself away before he asks him something ridiculous. He doesn’t look back.

    (When first year orthopaedics resident Mo Ran sends a cardiology consult for a patient one morning, he isn't expecting it to reach the one person he's been trying all year to forget.)

    Summary

    "She loved her. It ached within her. When she was younger, it ached in her in the ugliest ways. It made her angry, it made her jealous. She wanted to be the only person in Adora’s hurricane, the only person pulled into the vortex. She was livid when anyone else got close enough to be caught in the wind tunnel.

    It took the end of the world to realize she was never in Adora’s vortex, as she had once liked to think of it (all consuming, painful, inescapable). There was never any reason to fight or claw or scream for her place within her storm. She was never caught in the wind, swinging out wildly, hands reaching for her, for golden, darling Adora, who Catra had wanted so badly, she was willing to die out in the gale.

    Needless.

    Why did it take until now to realize that she wasn’t in the hurricane? She was in the eye. She had always been there."  

    Or: Catra has a praise kink, Adora has a Catra kink, and the both of them are drinking several gallons of WLW juice.

    Summary

    "As soon as she saw who the client was, her words died in her throat. Her drink slipped out of her hand a second later, but Catra couldn’t bring herself to care about the stain it would leave in the carpet.

    Across the table from her boss, wearing a perfectly-tailored suit that looked more expensive than most of Catra’s tuition payments, was Adora.

    As in, that Adora. The one Catra dated for all of college.

    The one that broke her heart four and a half weeks before graduation.

    The one that, according to what she’d said on the last day Catra had seen her, had fallen out of love with her."

    Or, six years ago, Adora and Catra were college students in love. Then, in one fateful meeting at a coffee shop, Adora broke Catra's heart.

    Now Catra's a junior partner at a law firm handling a patent dispute for Adora's family company. The two of them have to re-enter the other's life in an attempt for closure, catharsis, and connection.
