    Summary

    “She’s breathing.” Beatrice’s fingers twitch against Ava’s neck, near where her head is cradled in her lap. “Her pulse is fast. But she’s alive. Beyond that, I can’t tell.”

    An emergence, an escape, a twenty-four hour van ride, an abundance of beds (but no lack of sharing despite it), and any number of feelings clamoring through. [Immediately post-season 1, in five parts.]

    Summary

    She decides then and there that she’s never going to max out the Halo again.

    “I want to do a swap. A feelings swap. I want to always feel my legs, and—and I want to not feel all these stupid emotions anymore." She tilts her head back to peer up at the clear blue sky. “You got all that? We good?”

    (Ava spirals after the Vatican, but her fear of losing everything only pushes her further in that direction. Title from Taylor Swift. Three parts.)

    Summary

    “War or not, halo or not, you have us,” Beatrice assures. Ava remembers months ago, halfway into twenty feet of stone and a panic attack, when Beatrice declared the same thing. The darkness in her bedroom becomes easier to bear compared to the dead silence of Ava’s own room, what with the moonlight, the faint scent of vanilla, and Beatrice’s warmth, just inches away from her.

    “I know. Thank you.”

    or after the war, Ava and Beatrice spend a summer together

    Summary

    “Because I get you the Intelligence your General is too inexplicably stupid to get herself.” Scylla returned the glare, “They are building a base, and it will be active soon. If you don’t send in every squadron available, they will have enough power to cut off the entire system.”

    Anacostia didn’t react, brown meeting blue in a battle of silent wills.

    “This won’t bring her back.”
