    Summary

    Grace ends the call and puts the phone down, inking the date in her planner. She caps her pen and looks at the page with satisfaction. Of course, the days are nowhere near as full as they used to be, but they're also a long way from the sheer unmarked emptiness of those first few months. It's starting to feel like there's a life out there to be lived still. She adds a note to go grocery shopping on Tuesday, a reminder of Frankie's eye exam on Friday, then flips the page, pondering the shape of their next week. And there it is, in big block letters because Frankie was watching over her shoulder when she wrote it months earlier: FRANKIE'S BIRTHDAY, and underneath, in Frankie's shaky scrawl, yahooooooooooo!!!

    *

    This is absolutely at least slightly less angsty.

    Summary

    "The Bergsteins stopped by," Robert says, waving a finger in front of Brianna's face. She wrinkles her nose at the movement. "Frankie brought you something. I wasn't sure if you'd want to see anyone – "

    " – but I said, of course I won't stay long, I just have to welcome your precious little girl to the world." Frankie swoops in behind him in a riot of colour that seems to fill the room.

    *

    Grace, and Frankie, and competing ideas and ideals of motherhood, and angst. Did I mention the angst.

    Summary

    "You betcha, babycakes. Chemo's done, cancer's gone. And look!" Babe tugs the pink wig off her head to show a dusting of short hair covering her skull. Grace reaches out, waiting for Babe's nod, and rubs her hand over the soft bristles. She blinks hard, tearing up. "I'm hoping it’ll come back red," Babe says thoughtfully, pulling the wig back on. "I always wanted to look like Rita Hayworth. Or at least do the Gilda striptease."

    *

    Finally, post-s3 snuggles. Of course, there's some pre-series angst to get through first.

    Summary

    Robert pitched the beach house as a sanctuary, a place of renewal and relaxation; like so many of his promises, it hasn't exactly worked out. Grace is halfway down the stairs before she realises she's not, actually, alone. Without thinking, she freezes in place. "Too late," Frankie says from the dining table, "I hear ya, I know you're not dead up there." And then Grace has to come down or it'll look like she's hiding – from Frankie, of all people.

    *

    I thought I'd write about Grace having some pre-series angst, for a change.

    Summary

    "Uh, hello, hey, it's Frankie. You okay in there? Hi, hello-oo," she calls through the thin panel. But it's not Robert who opens the door. It's Grace. And though she tosses her head back so she can frown down her nose at Frankie and insist, "I'm fine," she doesn't look it. "Are not," Frankie says; before Grace can protest, she barges past her and through the door.

    *

    Did I mention that for some reason I'm still writing angsty pre-series stuff? Because. Oops.

    Summary

    It's not that Frankie doesn't like being able to reach out and touch someone. She's cool with being connected – tuned in, turned on, and a little less dropped out these days, except when she has a flashback or gets a bad batch of edibles. But there's gotta be a limit. When Grace shows up at the beach house for Memorial Day weekend basically surgically attached to a small device that beeps, zaps, and pings all the friggin' time, Frankie hits it.

    *

    All I want for these two is post-s3 smooches and snuggles; instead I'm writing pre-series angst exploring the times when they barely tolerated each other. Why.

    Summary

    PUCKER UP: this fast-talking fruit magnate-ess was spotted in a rare clinch on the dance floor at the RKO gala last night, showing off her assets in a gold Balenciaga number that had us by the pips... she's sweet as sugar now, but she's never been in a hurry to put down roots before... and with the sour looks she was getting across the floor, perhaps rumors of infidelity and sibling rivalry are flowering on the vine... don't expect her to settle on a main squeeze in the near future, we say.
