    Summary

    Percy knows he rambles quite a bit in his prayers to Poseidon, but at least he is safe in the knowledge that Poseidon is too busy of a god to ever really listen… right?

    Meanwhile, Poseidon is trying to be a responsible god, but Sally Jackson keeps praying to him about their son (aka I wrote another chapter because I’m weak).

    "I may have been postponing this last meeting of ours," he admitted. Sally tilted her head. The question wasn't said, but it hung there. "My... my son pointed something out to me. I needs to be rectified," he murmured and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. "Mortals are supposed to pray to gods," he explained, voice growing quiet. Sally tilted her head. "And every time I hear your voice... I only wish I could pray back to you. It is... unbecoming."

    Sally nodded slowly for a moment and then gently placed a hand on his wrist, pushing it away from her.

    "Well, we can't have that, can we?" She asked softly. "So this is goodbye?"

    Summary

    His marriage was already dying when the soulmarks came.

    Still, they were comfortable. They hadn’t moved into separate bedrooms yet when the soulmarks came, but they were thinking about it: Harry kept odd hours for work, Ginny got up damned early for practice, and both of them had nightmares, although Harry’s were, they both agreed, worse. Ginny had mentioned it, tentatively, as something the very old-fashioned pureblood families did, and Harry hadn’t agreed yet because he liked it when he could smell her in his sleep, but he had already known he was going to.

    And then one night, as he was changing into his pajamas, Ginny had asked, “What the bloody hell is that?!”

    It wasn't red, Harry thought distantly. It was darker than red, almost maroon. The color of dried blood.

    Any wizard would have called the color "Gryffindor red."

    He swallowed, once, and jerked his chin at the closest restaurant door. "Come on," he said. He got to his feet with more aches and pops than he really felt entitled to. "We should talk."
