    Beautifully rendered picture of Limbo. I love the subtle touches of their relationship without making the story about that, and how Arthur can't bear to erase the bits of Mal and Dom he finds. Lovely turns of phrase here:

    peels his shirt off and tosses it to the sand, where it falls like a discarded skin

    It’s almost like a post-apocalyptic Rockwell painting.

    the water so deep and churned up that it's like a black and white photo of the sea

    Beyond the window, a building – half realized, with Lovecraftian proportions and a Pisa-like tilt – crumbles in sections and crashes into the street below. They hold their breaths, guiltily, at the thunderous resonance of destruction; and for a long time afterwards their imaginary cityscape is darkened by a cloud of dust.

    It leaves me with a kind of ache for the characters while at the same time cheering for them to succeed.
