    Summary

    "Why have not we an immortal soul?" asked the little mermaid mournfully. "I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day." 

    "You must not think of that," said the witch, "unless a man were to love you. And if all his thoughts and all his love were fixed upon you, and he promised to be true to you here and hereafter-- then his soul would glide into your body and you would obtain a share in the future happiness of mankind. He would give a soul to you, and retain his own as well.

    But this can never happen."

    - Hans Christian Andersen

    ---

    Yet another one of those human!Outsider fics, inspired by the original tale of The Little Mermaid.

    Summary

    everything changed in the public eye. living your life like that, magazine cover to magazine cover, becoming what you’re told you are. your life reduced to headlines, soundbites, one moment played on loop in a youtube video over and over. the way you could easily be reduced to a chalk outline of a reality, nothing of you remaining for the world to see but the place where you fell hardest. nothing but the guts of you exposed and you're just an outline, police tape; the first footballer to come out. your love a scandal, your heart the butler in the kitchen with the candlestick.

    Summary

    Apollo likes the familiar. After the roller coaster of the UR-1 retrial following Clay's death, a regular routine is so comfortable that it's practically addictive. It's hard to stave off the lingering sense of stagnation that begins to settle in as the months go on, though, and he supposes it had to be only a matter of time before old wounds opened again.

    The attempted murder of a well-known editor has Apollo defending the author who is the only suspect, but the seemingly cut and dry case is not as simple as it seems. Meanwhile, his mind is racing, Trucy is hard at work preparing plans for her father's birthday party, Athena is ever the over-attentive psycho-analyst, and he and Klavier keep managing to wind up in close quarters.

    It's hard to work a case with his emotions getting in the way, and even harder when everyone around him seems to be revisiting painful memories at the same time.
