    Summary

    "You're angry," she commented quietly. “I’m not angry,” he refuted immediately. “There’s nothing to be angry about.” Emma simply hummed. “Nope, you’re definitely mad at me. Or rather, mad at who I used to be.”

    Or the one where Ray has to communicate about his feelings. He doesn't recommend it, but saying no to Emma is out of the question.

    Summary

    Ray is freezing.

    Norman dragged him and Emma outside in the middle of winter for a reason unknown to Ray, and now he's cold and wet and yearns to go back inside.

    Ray hasn't ever experienced a real winter before. Seasons are human inventions, and Ray doesn't approve.

    But when little white flakes start falling on him and Emma and Norman, Ray begins to understand the appeal of the cold season.

    Summary

    Norman and Ray share a bedroom in the Ratri’s facilities. In Norman’s initial absence, Ray had pushed their two allotted twin beds together, creating a larger mattress. (“The littler kids asked to sleep over a lot when they had trouble adjusting to their new rooms,” Ray explained to a question Norman never asked.)

    Since his breakdown and their subsequent fight, Norman sleeps there most days. His futon in the study remains, but lately it has felt cold and empty. Winter is approaching, he supposes.

    It’s not winter that has Norman feeling fragile, just like how it's not the body heat beside him that warms Norman to his core.

    or: Norman falls apart. Ray puts him back together. Norman and Ray, figuring out the spaces in between them when the girl they both love no longer inhabits it.
