    absolutely lovely; every single line full of almost-nostalgic emotion and expert characterization. this is the epilogue we all deserved

    Summary

    “I can’t get the measure of you,” he says.

    It’s such an English idiom. John’s breathing stutters briefly to a halt. “What do you mean?” he asks, his tone unserious, except he knows what he means; he’s heard it so often. Who are you, Jonathan? Who have you been? Mischief maker, soldier, medic, brother, lover, treasure hunter. Thief, school boy, almost-priest. John doesn’t have the measure of himself.

    Summary

    Chihiro has often wondered at the world of the bathhouse.  "The world of the spirits," Sen whispers.  Does it overlay her world, like the old legends, like Neverwhere?  Will she meet a ghost on a lonely road or turn sideways in a mundane instant and fall into that world of terror, mystery, adventure (love)?  Or is it like the tales in the Langs’ Fairy Books, another world entirely, with limited doors and different kingdoms and geography, a parallel but separate space?

    Sen knows the answer.  She also knows it doesn’t matter.

    absolutely fucking incredible; I can't picture the world beyond the film to be anything other than the one crafted here in this fic. even though the whimsy and wonder of the film's atmosphere are present, it's just a little bit deeper, a little less shiny, and a little more jaded; just like Chihiro herself, and I love it so much
