I would probably be one of those Batman or Daredevil-type antiheroes that beats up the bad guys and is scary in general but doesn't actually kill people or hurt good guys.

Black and purple, lots of body armor and some sweet biker boots sound like what I'd go with.

it is DONE

after like

or something

idk but its been a long time christ

Chapter Two: A Good First Impression is Key to a Good Professional Relationship

Arthur Belnz stared blankly down at the PADD in front of him, reading the same three words over and over again as if they would somehow change if he just willed them to enough. He couldn’t believe what was happening to him.

He didn’t have any choice whatsoever regarding his First Officer, Science Officer or Medical Officer. Usually he would’ve trusted Starfleet to make a good decision for him, at the very least, and be quietly displeased. But he’d tough it out. Though not a social butterfly, Arthur thought himself able to befriend practically anyone.

It figured that when he was rejoicing over assuming command of Citadel, a famous ship, something would happen to ruin everything.

This something was the name on his screen—three words, Saivel Mei Athess. Even if Athess hadn’t been an uncommon name, it mentioned in her file that she was definitively the daughter of Veren Athess, an honored admiral and the last captain of Citadel, and Ambassador Rhea Athess. It also mentioned that she had a tendency to act without thinking and a hesitant addition from someone noted alcoholic tendencies, something to keep an eye on in the future.

In all honesty, he wouldn’t have been nearly as distressed if they had some sort of safer, more stable assignment. Of course, Citadel couldn’t be relegated to something like that. No, no, the famous ship had to do something more exciting than that. They were exploring where no one had explored before, of course they were, where their safety was never entirely guaranteed, where they had only rudimentary ideas of what could be past the next corner.

If Saivel Athess died, or got severely injured, Arthur had a sickening feeling that he would be blamed, whether or not it was actually his fault (and it probably would be, to some extent). He did not want the wrath of Admiral Athess or Ambassador Athess on him. That would fuck up his career catastrophically.

Still, there was nothing he could do about it. With a sense of trepidation, he decided to look at who the hell his Medical Officer was going to be. Hopefully it wasn’t another kid of an admiral, or Arthur would locate the nearest cliff and jump off of it.

As it turned out, Kaime (no last name was provided) was not the kid of an admiral.

No. They were an alien ambassador.

Arthur threw his PADD violently at the floor the moment he realized what he’d just read, and only slightly regretted it.

*~*~*~*

The PADD sat on the floor, face-down, for many hours before Arthur even thought about picking it up again. He settled for glaring at it whenever he spotted it out of the corner of his eye, and then turning back to reading his old paperback book (an oddity, he supposed, but he liked the feel of them in his hands) until guilt finally settled in. Even so, he twiddled his thumbs and sat there for several minutes before he put the book down and got to his feet.

At that point, he made himself a cup of coffee and sat down again, then got up again to go to the bathroom, and then sat down again and stared at the fiendish thing while sipping his coffee.

To be fair, it wasn’t really the PADD’s fault. It was Starfleet’s fault. Don’t shoot the messenger, he thought to himself with a grimace. Seriously though, who thought it would be a good idea to send an alien ambassador on a potentially very, very dangerous expedition into the unexplored reaches of space? What good was an ambassador on a starship that far away from, well, a place where they did the ambassador… thing?

(Was there a word for it? Arthur thought it over for a few minutes before deciding that no, there probably was not, and he was just trying to make up excuses not to pick up the PADD and finish reading through the files.)

(…he really did not want to pick up the PADD and finish reading through the files. Was that reason enough? No, it wasn’t, of course it wasn’t.)

Arthur debated whether or not he could read a few more pages of his book before picking his PADD up until it started to beep a message alert. Leaving his coffee behind, he dashed over to the PADD and snatched it up quickly, flipping it over to see it unharmed, or at least as far as he could tell. Admiral King had sent him a message.

Anger forgotten, he immediately opened it and read the entire thing. And then read it again.

Completely bewildered by the admiral’s message, Arthur turned back to the information he’d received on his assigned officers. Skipping over Kaime for the moment, he moved on to Aaron Frye, his Science Officer.

He… had a criminal record that Arthur couldn’t see?

The file was short, too short—Arthur apparently wasn’t allowed to see… what, half of it? Probably more than half of it, even. All he was left with was the basics; name, age, gender, etc., etc., etc.

Now Admiral King’s letter suddenly made a lot more sense. Arthur went back to it and read it for the third time.

‘Arthur:

You’re probably receiving this later than you ought to be, but that’s bureaucracy for you. I only just got free to write this out, and I don’t have that much time before I’m going to have to meet with someone else about something-or-other.

I expect you’ve probably read up on who your assigned officers are by now. First off: apologies for the whole ‘assigning you officers’ thing. Despite what you may think, a certain admiral was actually quite against it, as I was. However, the others came to the consensus that a ‘sensitive mission’ such as yours necessitated it.

I also expect you to have several questions about exactly who your assigned officers are, especially Aaron Frye. I assure you that, although you may be suspicious, Mr. Frye is completely trustworthy and qualified for the position. Actually, he’s probably overqualified, and could do us more good here on Earth than out in space. Once again, that’s bureaucracy for you.

There are perfectly good reasons as to why you can’t see the entirety of his file, as well. Don’t worry about it. (I know you will anyway, but at least make an effort.)

As for the others, I’m sure that Miss Athess will be more than capable of being a First Officer, and Kaime is a brilliant doctor. You could have done far worse.

-R.K.’

Although, to a certain degree, Admiral King’s message was comforting, Arthur couldn’t help but be unnerved by the fact that he had an officer he knew nothing about. Why did Citadel’s mission ‘necessitate’ Aaron’s presence? What was so ‘sensitive’ about it? Arthur frowned at his PADD, his fingers drumming thoughtfully against its surface. Admiral King had left him with more questions than answers.

Well, maybe if he met some of these officers he’d been assigned, that would answer some of those questions. That seemed like a good idea to Arthur; he began to compose a message to the three officers, tapping his chin thoughtfully as he thought up how exactly to word it. He didn’t know any of them at all, really, so eventually Arthur came to the conclusion he should go with a formal message.

He typed out the last paragraph at least three times before he decided that he should stop being indecisive and hit send before he could stop himself. The next several minutes were spent staring at the screen, unsure whether he regretted his decision or not.

*~*~*~*

It was immediately obvious to anyone that, at the moment, Saivel Athess was not very receptive to conversation. Fortunately, Kaime knew that one only needed to persist and soon enough she would be forced to listen. “Saivel,” they began, clearing their throat unnecessarily to try and get her attention.

Saivel’s eyes flickered over at them, maintaining her gaze through the mass of tangled black hair in front of her face for an impressive total of three seconds before she looked away. She made some kind of unintelligible dismissive sound as a lackluster response.

Kaime set their PADD down on the table the two were both sitting at, albeit on opposite sides. They leaned forward slightly and set their arms on the table. “Saivel,” they repeated, with a stronger tone.

Another dismissive sound. “Saivel, this is important.”

“How important?” Saivel croaked, blowing her hair out of her face with a peeved look. “Life or death important? Cause if not, then it can wait.” The last few words were interrupted by a loud yawn she made no effort to conceal.

Pleased that she had responded with actual coherent English, Kaime leaned back and picked up their PADD once again. “Your position as First Officer on Citadel important.” At that, Saivel straightened up immediately, a humorous sight with her hair still a tangled mess sticking up in various places. “It may be in your best interest to check your messages.”

“Just show me, dude.” Saivel rolled her eyes, muttering something under her breath, before she got up out of the chair with a grunt. She made her way over to Kaime slowly and with a great deal of reluctance, finally arriving at their side a few moments later. As she reached for their PADD, Kaime sighed and handed it to her. “Thank you.”

They gave her some time to read through the fairly short, but nonetheless polite message from Captain Belnz, detecting surprise, faint confusion, and a great deal of leftover irritation from her hangover. Eventually, Saivel finished reading and handed the PADD back to Kaime. She blinked a few times, the metaphorical cogs in her brain somewhat rusty and reluctant to start moving.

One hand rose into the air, Saivel’s mouth open with a yet unspoken question, still thining. “Wait, okay,” she began, her other hand raising up to join its companion as she gesticulated. “Two o’clock on Tuesday at…”

Saivel turned to Kaime, who answered her question before she could ask it. “Today is Tuesday, the second of January. It is ten thirty-three.”

She sighed, relieved. “Okay, I was worried that I might be late or something. But I got time!” The exclamation, and accompanying fist pump, made her head hurt. “Ow.”

“The hangover medication has not yet taken effect,” Kaime informed her helpfully without looking up, scrolling through the other messages they’d received.

Even as she was wincing and holding her head in one hand, Saivel rolled her eyes and muttered, “Yeah, I knew that, Kaime, thanks.”

*~*~*~*

“Two o’clock, Tuesday… sure, I can make that,” Aaron Frye remarked to no one in particular. He tapped a finger against his cheek thoughtfully. Do I want to, though?

It would be a massive understatement to say that Aaron was less than enthusiastic about being on the Citadel. The task was something he’d accepted only after a great deal of bargaining and complaining and several one-sided ‘compromises.’ First of his many problems with the task was the fact that it required him to be on a ship for quite some time.

His exact words had been fairly scathing: “Call me old-fashioned, but I really, really do not like floating around in space in a giant hunk of metal. Makes me uncomfortable.” The reply he hadn’t bothered remembering, though to his recollection it was pretty harsh as well.

Second of all, he was Science Officer. Not to say he wasn’t up to the task; Aaron was smart, just unmotivated and arrogant, to put it bluntly. He didn’t want to be Science Officer. It was that simple.

Finally, he didn’t want to be part of a crew. Hell, he wasn’t really sure why he’d been assigned to this in the first place. The higher-ups had refused to give him any of the finer details, assuring him that he’d be informed by the reason this whole thing had come about in the first place. Ambassador Kaime. Why an ambassador would need someone like Aaron around was a mystery.

Once again, Aaron’s thoughts came back around to the meeting with Captain Belnz. He’d also sent the message to Ambassador Kaime and Admiral Athess’ daughter. It stood to reason that they’d also show up.

What the hell, why not, Aaron thought as he hit ‘reply.’

*~*~*~*

“Hey.”

“Hello, Admiral King. Are you occupied? It is not urgent; I can wait until later to speak with you.”

“No, no, I’m free right now. What is it?”

“Thank you.”

“…hmm?”

“Thank you. I am aware that my… tale seemed outlandish. Most would have immediately dismissed it as nonsense. Thank you for believing me, and for arranging all of this.”

“Well, when someone manages to draw a perfect image of your wife and son without ever having seen them as far as you know, they’re either a stalker or they’re telling the truth. And I am more than certain that it’s the latter and not the former. Certain enough to do something like this.”

“Was it much trouble?”

“Not at all. But, ah…”

“Yes, Admiral King?”

“You’re… sure about this?”

“…yes, Admiral King. It has been only a short time, I am aware. Even for—your standards. I regret it could not be longer. But I remember quite clearly, Admiral. I know that things can be changed. I know that this is how they have to be changed.”

“What will change, then?”

“That, I do not know. Purity for this long has gotten us many things, but not the ability to look into the future, Admiral. Things are different, now, than they were. I do not know how that will affect things later. But I do believe, at the very least, he won’t have to go through that. I would do anything in my power—”

“I never experienced it for myself—thankfully—but I agree with you. If you need anything else, then tell me, alright?”

“Yes, Admiral. Goodbye.”

“Good luck, Kaime.”

*~*~*~*

Fortunately for him, all three people had replied to Arthur’s message saying that yes, they could come, with varying degrees of length and politeness. Aaron Frye’s message had easily been the… bluntest, consisting only of a single sentence that barely qualified for sentence-hood at that. Saivel’s had been only slightly better. Ambassador Kaime’s, on the other hand, was as long as it was polite, formal and respectful. Arthur felt flattered just reading it. He supposed that was part of being an ambassador, really, which once again made him wonder why Ambassador Kaime was on Citadel in the first place.

Any thoughts about that were immediately forgotten as two people strode towards him, one significantly taller and thinner than the other. The black-haired girl Arthur immediately recognized as Saivel Athess, who seemed to be laughing at some mysterious joke. To her side was Ambassador Kaime, looking significantly less amused. Not that they were frowning at Saivel’s antics—they were simply maintaining a neutral expression with only the slightest hint of a smile.

Aaron was nowhere to be seen, but Arthur decided that it was nothing to worry about. At least the other two had shown up, and even if his reply had been brief, to say the least, Arthur believed Aaron would appear soon enough.

As it turned out, Aaron appeared seated at the table without a sound. Arthur happened to glance over in his direction and immediately reacted with a completely dignified yelp, almost falling over backwards in his surprise. Aaron snickered, looking smug, while Saivel erupted into laughter as she approached the table, Kaime trying to calm her down as she very nearly doubled over.

Once he’d stabilized himself on the table, Arthur gaped at Aaron. “Christ, you scared the shit out of me! How did you do that?”

Aaron’s silent smirk was the only answer he got. Saivel looked him over appraisingly. “Probably a ninja or something. Though, I admit, you don’t look Japanese. Foreign ninja.”

“Because I’m not.” Aaron rolled his eyes. “I’m Aaron Frye, though I suppose you already know that.”

“Arthur Belnz.” After considering it for a moment, Arthur decided not to extend a hand to Aaron. Something told him that he wouldn’t accept the handshake.

Saivel leaned on her considerably taller companion, grinning. “I am Saivel Athess, and this beanpole here is—”

Interrupting her gently, Kaime concluded, “My name is Kaime.”

“Just Kaime?” The look on Aaron’s face was almost suspicious, but Kaime did not seem at all perturbed by it.

“Just Kaime,” Saivel confirmed.

Satisfied that there would be no more interjections, Kaime offered their own hand to Arthur. “Pleased to make your acquaintance, Captain Belnz.” After a few seconds of staring dumbly at Kaime’s hand, Arthur came to his senses and shook it, a smile slowly spreading over his face.

“Likewise.”

Okay, I read the OP. The name Ultraviolet comes from part of her gear. She has these gloves she controls telepathically via a headband, and there's a strip of ultraviolet lights along the knuckles, for detecting blood, hidden messages, and whatnot. There's also a strip of infrared lights, and LED lights on the fingertips. Those are mainly for pissing people off.

The question came out of the comfortable silence with no warning but for a soft inhale, a slight adjustment in position: “Hey, whaddya think about sparring, or something?” As the words left her mouth Saivel turned to look at Fuse, who blinked a few times before he looked up, confused. His hands began to make as if to close the book lying on his lap, then stopped while it was still half-open.

Instead of an answer, he gave a soft question in response to Saivel’s suggestion. “…sparring?” It almost sounded as if it was a new word to him, what with how he sounded it out slowly—uncomprehendingly, even. Still gripping the book, his fingers twitched with uncertainty; the book remained half-open. Uncertain what to do, Fuse ended up staring at Saivel blankly.

“Yeah, sparring. It’s fighting. But not.” Saivel spread her hands out in front of her melodramatically, a deathly serious look on her face. She coughed into her fist, then demurely placed her hands on her lap and continued, not holding back on the sarcasm. “It’s amazing, you should try it some time. By which I mean right now, with me.”

There was a brief pause (during which Fuse continued to stare at her blankly, book still not quite closed in his lap) before she added, “Not literally right now. You—you know what I mean.”

Fuse stopped staring blankly and let the book close, seeming to finally understand. He answered, belatedly, “Um, sure. To the, to sparring. Sounds, uh, good.” Realizing how awkward his speech sounded, he smiled, though it was also quite awkward. The whole thing was just so ridiculous Saivel started snickering despite herself, fading off as Fuse’s expression began to shift into bemusement.

She collected herself with one last snicker she barely covered up by pressing her knuckles against her lips. “If you’re not up to it, you don’t have to do it.” Although her voice was somewhat muffled by the fact her hand was still in front of her mouth, Fuse could hear her clearly enough to become slightly indignant.

He straightened up in his seat with an irritated pout. “I am ‘up to it,’ I just… the question… took me off guard. Didn’t really expect you to just suggest it out of nowhere.”

Saivel put both her hands out in a pacifying gesture, trying and failing to hide the smirk on her lips. She placated Fuse gently (“alright, alright, I get it, calm down”) before continuing on with, “If I recall correctly, there’s an empty room somewhere we can use. Do we have… wooden swords or something like that anywhere?”

“I’m not sure,” Fuse admitted. “I’ll have to look around… how about you go there, and wait—actually that doesn’t work, hold on. Um… I’ll see if I can find any, you wait here. Okay?”

Leaning backwards in her chair, Saivel laughed, “’course I’m okay with you doing manual labor instead of me. Knock yourself out.” As Fuse mouthed ‘really?’ she grinned back, before he set down his closed book beside him, stood, turned, and walked out of the room in search of non-lethal weaponry.

*~*~*~*

From one foot to the other, Saivel kept on shifting, never staying still, always moving. That seemed to be the case with her in general, needing movement and excitement all of the time. “Come on,” she whined as Fuse remained stooped over, hesitating to straighten up after picking up the wooden sword, “what’re you waiting for?”

Something was bothering him, something in the back of his head. It seemed to squirm away whenever Fuse tried to pinpoint it and figure out what it was. “Sorry,” he apologized on instinct, standing up right away.

“Took ya long enough, lords.” Saivel continued her repetitive dance from foot to foot, moving to the left, then to the right, then back to the left again. “Fight me, Fuse!” she exclaimed good-naturedly, grinning.

Even as the something kept niggling at him, Fuse couldn’t help but smile. “I get first blow, huh? How gracious of you,” he teased, one of his rarer sarcastic moments.

“Yeah, I’m great like that. Come on, Fuse.” Moving her sword into one hand, Saivel hit her chest with the free one. Fuse adjusted his position slightly, preparing himself. Apparently ignorant of his impending strike, Saivel continued to tease. “What’re you afraid of?”

Just as he was about to move, Fuse faltered, froze. Those words were terribly familiar.

“What’re you afraid of?”

The taste of blood in his mouth, metallic. (Where did it come from he couldn’t remember)

“I thought you said you’d do anything to stop me. Or was that you? I forget. Things get all muddled up in this head of mine. Awfully disordered in here.”

Sword heavy arms heavy legs heavy tired, weary. (But the sword was wood the sword was metal a cold hilt in his hands)

“Come on! Aren’t you supposed to be the best of the best? Better than the king, even. Well, now it’s time to prove it!”

“What’re you afraid of, A—“ (What was at the end of that sentence he wasn’t sure why wasn’t he sure)

“WHAT’RE YOU AFRAID OF?”

“Fuse? Fuse? Fuse!” Hands on his shoulders; instinctively he struck out, panicked, found himself sprawled on the floor with Saivel sitting with her legs folded under herself. She was looking at him, worried. Saivel worried. Saivel genuinely worried and showing it, not just saying so with a well-meaning punch on the shoulder in the way that meant she was, underneath all that bravado and insensitivity. Fear on her face. Saivel didn’t like to look afraid.

He couldn’t breathe right, couldn’t find the air properly. “Fuse—” Saivel reached out hesitantly, and he looked from her hands to her face, meeting her eyes (purple eyes purple eyes), then immediately scrabbled further away. “Fuse, what—”

She was cutting herself off, afraid, uncertain, hands still stretched out. (purple eyes)

Breaths were more shuddering gasps than breaths, too quick and not enough. Was he crying?

Once again, she said his name, hands slowly dropping to her sides. “Fuse?" The words 'are you okay' died in her throat; obviously, he wasn't okay. Lords, she didn't know what to do. Should she get Kaime? Could she get Kaime? Even lost as she was, Saivel got the distinct feeling Fuse should not be left alone. But she didn't know what to do. Oh, lords.

Kaime would know what to do, but Kaime wasn't there and she couldn't get Kaime. Somehow, she needed to calm down Fuse. He was still seated on the floor, now curled up tightly on himself, arms wrapped around his legs with his face hidden behind his knees. His breathing--he was breathing too fast, with terrible heart wrenching sobs that made Saivel's heart break a little just hearing them.

"Fuse, you--you need to calm down." She swallowed, trying to think think think of anything that she could use to help Fuse. "Take--deep breaths, breathe--breathe with me. Can--try, please."

Not even sure whether or not Fuse had registered her words, Saivel did her best to breathe deeply, in and out slow and steady. What felt like a ton of bricks lifted off of her shoulders as she saw Fuse was struggling to follow her example, inhaling and exhaling evenly only for his breathing to be interrupted by yet another erratic burst of breaths that were too fast.

"Yeah--breathe, breathe deeply, it's--breathe with me. In--" Saivel breathed in, taking her sweet time with it, inhaling until she thought she couldn't any longer and then for a few more seconds. "--out." She exhaled slowly, watching Fuse with a careful eye. Hoping.

She wasn't entirely sure how long she kept encouraging Fuse to 'breathe with me,' but eventually it seemed the method paid off, or at least his breathing was back under control. It didn't escape her notice that his cheeks were damp with tears. Fuck, what happened? Was it her fault? He'd just--frozen, and then he'd fallen like a puppet with its strings cut.

"Fuse, what happened?" There was the fear Fuse had seen in Saivel's voice, shaking her voice, making it all wavery. He lifted his head slightly, looking straight into her eyes with his own slightly puffy ones.

Purple eyes. But... her eyes were a different shade of purple. Not bright purple, practically glowing with malevolence and chaos. The purple of her eyes was darker, more subdued, not the same. Different. Saivel's purple eyes. Not--

Saivel seemed slightly anxious when her eyes met Fuse's and immediately diverted her gaze. After a few moments her eyes flicked back, only to find him still staring straight at her. Fuse lifted up his head a little more, just enough to prop his chin on his knees.

What had she asked him? 'Fuse, what happened?' He didn't know. For a few more moments he continued staring in silence but for his occasional sniffles. Finally, he hesitantly opened his mouth and tried to speak.

"I--" His voice was terrible. Fuse swallowed, then cleared his throat and tried again. "I just--" Words were failing him. "I remembered something," he finally managed to get out.

"You... remembered?" Saivel's shock was more than evident. "What did you remember?"

His throat choked up again. "I was--" At the end of the word his voice caught with that horrid noise that meant he was about to cry. "It was--bad."

Saivel's mouth formed an 'oh,' an 'oh' she said so softly no one heard it. "What did you remember?"

blood in mouth sword heavy body heavy tired so so tired crying i don't want this i don't want to hurt you there has to be another way

purple eyes

there is no other way why why i don't want this i don't want this


Fuse pressed his lips against each other to form a thin white line, and took a little time before he spoke. "Let's--not spar, again."

"S-sure. Sure, we can--do that." Saivel's lips were turned down in the very slightest frown. What had Fuse remembered that made that happen? "Um, we should put all this junk away then."

"...yeah, we should," Fuse agreed.

"You gonna get off of the floor anytime soon?" questioned Saivel, intending for it to be lighthearted as she stood and brushed off her pants. Evidently Fuse wasn't as amused as she'd hoped he would be, hiding his face behind his knees and shaking his head. "Suit yourself, then."

His sword had clattered a few feet to his left when he'd backed away from her earlier. It was a simple, inelegant thing, hilt rough in Saivel's hand as she walked over and stooped to pick it up. Fuse remained on the floor, unmoving. She cleared her throat. "You... need anything? Should I get Kaime?"

"I'll be fine," he assured her weakly. Unconvincing was the nicest way to describe it. Pitiful would be more accurate.

Several plans of action ran through Saivel's mind. First of all, she could get Kaime, but even if the worst of it seemed to be over, she still felt she shouldn't leave Fuse alone. All of the other plans were discarded, eventually settling on talking to him. Saivel grilled the wooden sword's hilt hard, knuckles turning white. She bit her lip and tried to think of something.

"No, you won't be." As Fuse glanced up at her, she shook her head with force. "You're not."

When no response was forthcoming, Saivel set both her sword and Fuse's against the wall. The wood made a soft thump as she propped them up. Silence remained as she made her way over to Fuse, turning on her heel in front of him to crouch down. Though he tried to avoid her gaze, she looked right at his eyes.

"Fuse. You don't want to talk about it. I get that. Sometimes you got shit that you don't want to or maybe plain fucking can't talk about." Her words growing in volume, Saivel leaned forward. "But don't lie and say you're fine when you're not. Nobody gets shit when you do that. You don't get better and they get worse, 'cause they know you're lying. S'just nobody's got the courage to say it."

"You ought to listen to your own advice," Fuse snapped, wrapping his arms tighter around himself.

She would never admit it, but his words struck her where it hurt. Through her teeth, she hissed, "You listen to it first, Fuse. You need it more right now."

"And you haven't needed it for a long time?"

"Who's the one curled up in a ball on the floor right now?" she shot back, becoming irritated. "Where the hell'd this shit come from?"

Completely ignoring her last question, Fuse retorted to the first instead. "Who's the one spending our coin on alcohol and drinking herself to fucking--"

He stopped himself suddenly, realization hitting him of what he was saying. It was an unspoken rule that they didn't talk about Saivel drinking. Saivel was staring with wide eyes, hands curled into tight fists. She looked as if she might cry. "I'm sorry, I just..."

"I'll be fine." The repetition of his own words was oddly jarring, somehow piercing to his core. Saivel wiped her eyes with hasty motions. "Let's just get the fuck out of this room."

Before Fuse could respond to her suggestion, Saivel had already stood and offered him a hand to get up. He took it, her grip strong though he was shaking, and she pulled him to his feet.

They walked in silence, neither wanting to admit that both of them needed Saivel's advice. Doors and rooms passed, the sun's dying light streaming through windows out of place in the dark silence that had settled between them. When they came to the very room where they'd started, Fuse broke the silence.

It was gentle. "I'll... I'll go find Kaime now."

"Whatever floats your boat." Saivel tried to return her voice to its usual confident bravado, but failed. "...see ya."

"...yeah." Swallowing down the confused and angry words he wanted to say, Fuse turned and left.

*~*~*~*

That night, everyone was either sleeping or trying to sleep. Or thinking.

'You ought to listen to your own advice.' Fuse's voice repeated in Saivel's mind, echoing as she stared at the bottle of cheap wine in her hand.

She shifted her grip on it, frowning thoughtfully. It was cool in her hand, smooth without a blemish. As of yet, it was unopened.

"...dammit." The laugh that came out of her was half a sob and full of bitterness. Closing her eyes, Saivel leaned the bottle against her forehead. "Lords fucking dammit. DAMMIT!"

The sound of smashing glass was soon followed by the sound of feet shuffling through the hallways. And then quiet.

Two people cried themselves to sleep that night.

tfw you remember old-ass stories you wrote ages ago and how incredibly shitty they sre

and don't get me started on the other ones there were like three other shameless as shit self-inserts one of which was the daughter of the antagonist in an incredible ~plot twist~ and the other was actually the sister of the prince who wasn't actually the prince by blood but adopted because the actual prince was dead
