    Summary

    The trial's ended, and in its wake is a sense of finality. Not closure, because nothing's ever really, honestly over: ghosts haunt, and nightmares come, and then there're the little things. And in the face of all these changes, Alec and Ellie are forced with defining a new normal. But what will they make of it?

    (Set after S2, Alec and Ellie consult on a missing person case, while navigating the struggles of parenting, grief, personal growth, and love.)

    Summary

    “One of my mother’s infrequently indulged in hobbies was making preserves,” he said absently, seeming to look over her shoulder and into the golden light streaming through her gauzy curtains.

    “After she passed, I took the last jar and hid it away,” he continued eventually. “Mycroft never knew about it." He pressed his lips together. "He’ll never know about it."

    “What kind of preserves?” Joan whispered.

    “Ginger,” he replied, “boiled in simple syrup.” He sighed, blinked slowly. “I ate it under a bridge on my eighteenth birthday.”

    Summary

    "We don't have a lot of time," she says, brushing dust off her pants as she jumps down onto the ground. "If you have something to say—"

    "I heard you," he blurts out.

    She frowns, looking up. "What?"

    His heart kicks in his chest, thudding faster and harder against his ribcage.

    "Your messages," he says, willing his voice to remain steady.

     

     

    Or, the one where Bellamy finally gets the 2,199 messages he'd missed.
