    Summary

    When the ice melts, when the magic comes pouring back into the walls, breathing tremulous life into the castle, reversing the effects of the magical death of the grounds and its occupants, it meets the emptiness inside of her and she collapses.

    (Magic is an organic thing; it lives and breathes and grows at its own rate. It cannot be forced along, can only be nurtured or confined and repressed, and although it grows, although it regenerates, it cannot be manifested suddenly out of the aether. It’s fundamental magical theory, really.

    And it's for that reason Hecate lies, slack-jawed and frightfully pale, in the infirmary for five days before regaining even a whisper of consciousness.)

    Or, the magic at Cackle's takes some time to recover, and Hecate has some personal demons to battle in the meantime. Follows Hecate across the ~6 months after the events of The Big Freeze as she navigates her recovery of both her magic and her way of life - with a great deal of help from her support structure.

    Summary

    Water sloshes down into puddles on the stone beneath their feet and they stand together, soaked and breathless, Hecate staring at her in a way that makes Pippa itch with satisfaction. As if she’s finally seeing her.

    “Have you,” Hecate begins, voice pitched low, “lost your modern mind.”

    Pippa closes the distance between them until they’re toe to toe. “Have you forgotten that there’s more to The Craft than a dusty old book of rules?”

    ****

    Hecate learns modern magic. Pippa learns why Hecate is so loyal to Cackle's. Together they learn how much better life can be if they only just work as a team.

    Summary

    “They’re for you,” Pippa says, pushing the tin of biscuits back towards Hecate. “Unless you want something else? Mum and Dad sent loads.” She sifts through the parcels. “There’s chocolate, and—”

    “But it’s yours,” Hecate cuts her off. “For your birthday.” There’s a question in her voice as she struggles to understand: she can’t quite grasp the elaborate affair that Pippa's birthday has become. But more than that, she can’t understand why Pippa would want to share with her.

    Pippa glances up again, grinning as she pops a thin, wafer-like biscuit into her mouth. “So? We’re friends, aren’t we? Friends share.”
     

    Or (an only slightly out of order) 5 times they gave each other birthday gifts, and one time they didn't, interspersed with other stuff I couldn't resist including because in the end I have no self control.
