    Summary

    [CW: Alcoholism, Alcohol Abuse/Substance Abuse, PTSD and its affects]

    Lin Beifong has been sober for eighteen years, a hundred and five days, and twenty-three hours when the Equalists force her to kneel in the cold, rainy plaza of Air Temple Island and Amon takes her bending away.

    Eighteen and a half years of work, hours of meetings and withdrawals and makeshift sobriety chips lined up along her backsplash, gifted to her quietly by the world’s otherwise most exuberant man…all gone in an instant.

    Just like her bending.

    A wonderful gem. Great look into Lin's character. Feels 100% canon and that's how I'm viewing this story as.

    Summary

    Years. Broken into months into weeks into days—into hours, minutes, seconds—into moments. Simple at one end, complex at the other. In Draco’s experience, moments, even when simple, had a habit of becoming irretrievable. Moments grew, stretched, multiplied into ages and eras that defined whole stretches of measurable time. Draco regretted several moments in his life, some within his control, some without: all of them irretrievable in nature. At a certain point, wedged between ‘what-ifs’ of his own devising, he’d stopped trying to keep track of those regrettable moments: now and then, pushing and pulling, coming and going, beginning and end. Moments were only moments for just as long. After that, he had no control.

    [In which Draco is forced to work with Hermione, falls in love, makes many mistakes, and eventually becomes his own man. A Draco POV prequel to Wait and Hope.]

    Normally I wait to bookmark a fic once it's completed, or if it's completed then after I've finished reading.

    This FIC. Chapter 37 made me pause, scroll up to reread, then scream internally and bookmark this. I know I won't regret it.
