    Soulmates do not exist, Ragnor,” Magnus stated, taking a sip of his cocktail, “Those are just myths.”

    Summary

    A note from the past causes Magnus to contemplate the loves of his long life, and leads to an unexpected turning point in his relationship with Alec.

    Or, Why Magnus Never Married

    ***

    “Meaning well is not well enough,” Ragnor said to Magnus in some shabby French café several decades ago. “You remember what Simone said. ‘The danger is not that the soul doubts there’s any bread, but lest, by a lie, it persuades itself that it is not hungry.’ My dear friend, there is no bread. Do not pretend any of these well-meaning ‘acts of love’ feed that starving soul of yours.”

    “That’s not exactly how she said it. I do believe you’re paraphrasing.”

    “And you’re avoiding the issue, which I’ll allow because I’ve eaten too much and need to concentrate on digestion. But I hope you're listening too."
