    Summary

    Joel and Ellie centric, because theirs is one of the most beautiful and well-written stories I've experienced in a very long time, that moved me and made me cry and laugh throughout the first game. Their dynamic was the best thing, IMHO, and that was SO lost in TLOU-2. Their flashbacks just killed me. I mean, they cracked my chest open, took my heart, stumped on it, beat it, and set it on literal fire.

    Mainly written from Joel's POV.

    This is not a fix-it or an AU where Joel lives. Although part 2 devastated me utterly and completely, I will respect the story created by Naughty Dog.

    The first three chapters are just one-shots that expand a little bit more some of the cutscenes from TLOU-1 that left me absolutely drained. The fourth chapter is from TLOU-2, an expanded last conversation between Joel and Ellie. And the fifth chapter is just what I'd imagined TLOU-2 would be from seeing the trailer, well before I experienced the game myself.

    So, basically:

    Chapter 1: Summer's end
    Chapter 2: Winter's end
    Chapter 3: TLOU-1's end
    Chapter 4: Last conversations
    Chapter 5: TLOU-2 Reimagined

    Summary

    Many months pass since Ellie's return, and as she slowly pieces herself back together, she finds her way back to Dina.

    // Post-canon //

    Dina draws back slightly, eyes lingering on Ellie’s for a long time before answering, “Okay. We’ll see.” And that's more than enough for Ellie - more than she’d hoped to get, more than she knows she deserves. She still doesn’t believe in second chances, but she believes in luck and fate and on good days, she believes that the future doesn't necessarily have to be anything like the past.

    Summary

    Dina’s eyes shone with tears and Ellie cleared her throat, nerves fluttering in her stomach again as she continued. “I’m probably gonna butcher this,” she muttered, more to herself than anyone else. “I did a lot of research about the things you told me, the Jewish traditions and blessings, and I… I found one that I really liked.”

    Ellie took a deep breath before reciting the lines she’d been practicing for months. “Ani l'dodi v’dodi li. It means, uh, that--”

    “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine,” Dina finished for her, voice almost reverent as the tears in her eyes spilled over.

    OR

    Ellie loves Dina, Dina loves Ellie, and it's about damn time they make things official.
