    Summary

    After losing Percy in the final battle, Vex threw herself into her role as baroness of Whitestone. She hadn't been able to protect him, but she could damn well take care of the city that he'd loved.

    She never expected to fall for his sister.

    Summary

    In one world, Vox Machina triumphed over their foe. They saved the day, and all of them walked away from the final battle unscathed. They might not have necessarily lived happily ever after, but they lived, and that was the important part.

    This is not that world.

    Summary

    (chance is all you need / whatever you see / you belong too): It is nice, she thinks, to live for something sharp and light as air, for something that settles over her skin with a firm promise of flight. New, like everything else Vex has brought to Whitestone, and sometimes Cassandra marvels that the unfamiliar joy has not burned her to dust. But Vex's light is too warm for that.

    Or; Cassandra rewards her Huntmistress for a job well done

    Summary

    (i throw myself into all the demons / i cast myself into the wild hunt): Vex's right hand trails down her cheek, her neck, past the scars of Sylas' teeth to cover Cassandra's heart. "And am I to kill you then, Lady Cassandra? Return you to the earth that would swallow your lineage whole? I can't imagine you in a crypt, somehow." She trails off, her eyes flickering away from Cassandra's gaze for a moment, and there is no relief in their absence. "Or is it just about the Hunt?" Vex asks, suddenly sharper. "Shall I run and make you run until the demons behind us no longer draw breath?"

    Or; The one where the Grey Hunt is about an entirely different sort of monster in the forests

    Summary

    Cassandra knows death, hears it in her family's screams and then, deeper, in the silence of the stone walls when enough days have passed that she has no more tears. But she knows the absence of death too, and she tastes it in the blood-soaked ashy air. Something more than Whitestone itself is alive now, pressing up at the earth, and she knows it wants her just as much as Whitestone does.

    Or; the one where Whitestone reaches for the bones of the last de Rolo child with more than death, and a ranger and her fey trees say no
