    Who comes out the other side?

    Or, Elliot goes undercover, and Olivia finds herself sinking at his side.

    Summary

    Then she’s twisting around slightly so that Elliot can see the left side of her ribcage, just below her breast where the band of her bra normally sits.

    There, in dainty Roman numerals, are the numbers IX.XXV.

    September 25, the anniversary of her and Elliot’s partnership, etched on her body in permanent black ink.

    Summary

    She helps him find the apartment. Maureen takes him to IKEA and helps him buy the necessities. But the daunting task of assembling everything is overwhelming. And then just like always, there she is at his door, ready to help put his furniture - and their relationship - back together.

    -//-

    “I just….Sometimes I feel like I’m in the goddamn Twilight Zone.”

    Well, that’s something he can relate to, though probably not for the same reasons. Everything feels surreal to him nowadays. Everything except maybe her. “How so?”

    “Sometimes it doesn’t feel real to me that you’re here. We’re sitting on a couch, eating Thai food together in 2021 like it’s 2006 and I’m afraid to enjoy it because up to a couple of months ago I had convinced myself that I was never going to see you again.”

    Summary

    Apparently this is what I do now, write speculative one-shots based on spoilers and promos.

    "So, Elliot does what he’s never allowed himself to do: he reaches for her. Tentative, tender - he will not touch her with hollow hands - he reaches, and feels the strands of her hair slide over his fingers, the soft skin of her cheek against his thumb.

    She is the key to all of his chains, and if she can find it in that hallowed heart of hers to forgive him he will show her what it means to be loved freely, without restraint."
