    Summary

    When I was eighteen years old, I made a decision. I was not going to live the same life that my sister was living, or that my mother had been living, or even my Gran. So, after one semester of community college, I decided that Omaha just wasn't going to cut it for me. I packed my clothes, took the remaining money I had from graduation, got into my shitty red Volkswagen and left Nebraska for good.

    Penny knows what she wants in life. At least, she used to. Howard and Bernadette's wedding sets off a series of events which will change her life forever. Plans change and Penny will have to learn the hard way how to adapt.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Why do you think I should major in theater? I thought you, of all people, would want me to be more practical.”

    This time, it’s Sheldon who’s quiet.

    “Why did you want to be an actress?” he asks at last. Penny lets her legs hang limply, let’s her body slowly start to drag the swing to a stop.

    “What does that matter?” she asks. “I’m not going to be an actress,” she says.

    Sheldon frowns and rubs a hand along his plaid pants. “I never wanted to do anything other than what I’m doing,” he says.

    Penny lets her feet catch in the dirt below. “Well, you’re smart,” she says. “You can do what you love.”

    Sheldon doesn’t say anything more.

    Penny drinks half a bottle of wine when she gets back to her apartment.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A sweet and gentle fic that doesn't play Sheldon's personality for laughs. Bookmarked especially for the following exchange...

    ---

    They've started kissing – Sheldon has discovered that at a certain point during what Penny refers to as "making out," his brain quiets down and his body takes over.

    That's why now, in the Subway line, not only can Penny touch him, but he can put his arm around her shoulders without breaking a sweat. Penny had commented once that even when he had no outward signs of panic, she could still feel his heart beating fast.

    "But Penny," he'd explained. "My heart always beats faster when you're around."

    It is almost their turn for sandwiches.

    "Hey Peach," says one of the hobbits behind them. "Wanna ditch those guys and party with us?"

    "Oh please," Penny says, rolling her eyes. "Like I would want anything to do with your nasty hairy feet or your precious. I'm way out of your league."

    The hobbit's friends holler and hoot, teasing their rejected comrade.

    "Penny," Sheldon says. "You're out of my league too."

    "No, Sweetie," she says. "You and I are playing a totally different game."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Give me your hand,” she says. She drags the back of her hand across her face, wiping away her tears, and knocks things off Leonard’s desk until she finds a permanent marker. She turns back to him, her face set with determination. “Give it,” she says.

    He puts his hand out cautiously, and she takes it. She scrawls Mine, on the back, the e looping down to his thumb.

    “I need to know it’s you,” she says. “I have to know.”

    He takes the marker from her quietly. His letters are more deliberate and careful, his fingers dry and soft against her skin. He writes My own, and the phrasing of it just about does her in.

    “There could be another Penny and another Sheldon doing this,” he says. “This doesn’t guarantee we’ll always be certain.”

    “It doesn’t matter,” she says, swallowing hard. “If another Penny’s done this, it means she loves you enough to protect you. It means she’ll keep you safe.”
