I love how you highlighted Vera's manipulation in keeping Joan here through the destruction of evidence. Any mention of Sappho makes my heart sing. A beautifully painful verse that lets us into Joan's inner sanctum. I adore this fic. Thank you for sharing it with us.
I was originally looking at Poe, but on a whim I looked at Sappho instead (I'm not super well-versed in her poetry) and I thought this was pretty near perfect. Thank you for reading and taking the time to give feedback!
