    But now she is in a penthouse, on a leather sofa, a Stratocaster giving her a lap dance, and working on a song—The Song that will put the ghost of her mother to rest. But the amp crackles and fizzles. The notes are wrong. Again. It sounds like the beginning of the Pixies’ “Debaser.” Then it sounds like a Scarlatti sonata. The music morphs, running through her fingers like water. She isn’t sure if she changes it, or if it changes her.

    The way Serena haunts every fragment of this.

    Summary

    "He can hear Bridget’s voice, the light tone she’d used the afternoon of the picnic because she hadn’t known.
    She hadn’t known he wasn’t there.
    He wasn’t there when his son was born. He wasn’t there when it counted."

    He should have run from bedside to bedside, from his wife to his partner, making good on his promise to them both, to protect and to serve, for better or for worse.

    Really great post-return Elliot characterization. I love that he's saying things he's needed to say for fourteen years, and other things he's needed to say since he got back. It's just so many things I wanted, crammed into one fic that's the perfect length to reread as often as possible.

    "I've never quite gotten the hang of backseam stockings, Jean-Luc. Will you help me straighten them?"

    "Anything for a lady," he says, already in Dixon Hill's voice.

    Hot and infuriating in that special way only Picard/Crusher is.

    "I didn't turn you in," she says, softly, warily.

    He gazes at her for a long, long moment. "I know," he finally says. "Shit, Olivia, you know every dark thing I've done in the past ten years. If it had been you they'd have hanged me."

    I think about this at least once every couple of weeks.

    It felt like mathematical equations, like things that made logical sense. It felt like opening the front door and tossing your keys on the counter, exhaling. "I swear to God," Elliot muttered as he moved inside her, one hand on the side of her face, the tip of his thumb in her mouth. "I swear to God, Liv, if you run away from me again I’ll bring you back my goddamn self."

    That was what made her come.
