    Summary

    Annnnnnd here goes that beautiful glass vase toppling to the ground. I think this will be a chaptered fic and probably the last part of this series? I wouldn't say it's been fun, exactly, but ~illuminating. The usual caveats apply. Everyone is a flawed person here in some way or another to some extent or another, which hopefully is widely understood by my small readership by now.

    (Content warnings: implied abuse, cheating, adultery, unprotected sex, drunk sex/dub-con, some creepy stalker-ish stuff, suicide ideations, implied childhood sexual abuse, STDs. James is limited POV but still. The back button is there if you need to use it!)

    Summary

    Affair was a strange word to toss around, old-fashioned. She considered others: tryst made it sound like a one-off. Fling, too casual. Carrying on was a term her mother might have used.

    Summary

    "I can't—" Eliza says, and turns away. She doesn't seem to have control over the words coming out of her mouth; she doesn't seem to have control over the sharp hot anger that's living inside her chest. And she is, she's angry, she's so angry and she doesn't know what to do with it all. When she'd first found out she'd been numb, and hurt, so hurt it had felt like she could hardly breathe. She had thought she'd been angry then, too, but she's realizing that has nothing on what she's feeling now: she'd been hurt by him and she'd forgiven him but she'd never been mad at him for doing what he did to her, and now she is, and it's so overwhelming she could scream.

    Summary

    Alexander feels badly the first time he sleeps with Maria. He feels badly the second time, and the third, but he doesn’t feel enough shame or regret to make him stop seeing her. When he realizes that no bolt of lightning is going to strike him down, no act of God is going to stay his hand and compel him to be a better man, his shame starts to become a routine, just like so many other routines in his life.

    (Or, Alexander thinks)
