    Summary

    A stressed and frustrated Norma proposes a mutually beneficial arrangement for her and Alex, just wanting to find a physical release with someone she trusts to follow her rules even if he isn't sure he'll be able to follow them all, especially rule number five...

    "I thought you and me could sleep together."
    "Come on, Alex. It's not like you're seeing anyone right now. I'm not asking for hearts and flowers. It would be purely physical."
    He spluttered in shock and she let out a noise of irritation.
    "Don't be such a prude, Alex!" His eyebrows shot up. He'd been called a lot of things over the years but prude wasn't one of them. "It's just sex."

    Summary

    "Did you ever think that we are all just walking carefully through life along this strong, metal wire high above the ground? We think, 'this wire will hold if I try my hardest to stay balanced, move slow, and think carefully about each step I take'. But suddenly it just...snaps." Norma whispered absentmindedly as she stared up at the stars twinkling at her. "We would fall to our death and never see it coming."

    Summary

    If the end of episode 9 didn’t at all happen- after Norman joins Norma in bed, he falls asleep just as she does.
    Alex decided to leave her alone for that night but not before going to the motel to check on her, however he was met with darkness. He let himself in and went upstairs, walked into ‘their’ room and called out for her. She turned after the third call and told him to leave, he did of course.
    He then decided to ring her at a stupid time in the very early hours of the next morning to which she picks up and tells him she’s fine and then ends the call.

    Summary

    She doesn't remember a glowing white light. She doesn't remember any pearly gates or men with curly white beards holding their arms open to her. She didn't agree to this. Isn't she supposed to get a choice? To fight, to go back? How can she just die and not even remember it?

    Summary

    "'Didn’t her momma teach her better manners?'

    Lorraine murmured, “We all have our demons, Ed. Come on. We’ll probably forget about them in ten minutes.” She cupped his cheek with her hand and said, “I’m fine. I promise.” He softened under her touch and pressed a kiss to her palm as she said, “She still could use a personality check though.” Ed snorted out a laugh, the warm air tickling Lorraine’s palms."

    ------

    Ed and Lorraine are taking a well deserved vacation (in the Pacific). However, the festivities are halted when they run into a couple we know all to well. And then run into them again. And again. And again.

    Summary

    “I haven’t felt safe with a man in so long,” she breathed, eyes looking down at where her hands were fidgeting with his fingers. “I feel safe with you. And I’m… nervous to mess it up. I’m scared I’m going to mess us up.”

    He pressed his lips gently to forehead and she sighed, the tension escaping her at the tender gesture of affection. The affection that she found so rare from others, yet an affection that seemed to come so easily to him in regards to her.

    “Nothing you do could ever mess us up.”

    “But what if-“

    “Shh,” his lips find hers, the kiss so soft and tender, nothing like the sloppy, wet and rushed kisses they shared only moments ago. “I mean it. Nothing. Okay?”

    Summary

    After Norma's death, Alex Romero sees something about Ed and Lorraine Warren, particularly that Lorraine is a clairvoyant. He impulsively sets off on the most depressing cross-country road trip ever to find Lorraine, trying to see Norma one last time.

    x

    The words filled Alex’s head and bounced around, knocking against him. He imagined the words scraping his brain, trying to give a cause to his headache. It was a crazy idea. It was so far-fetched that he would have laughed in any other circumstance. But he needed to get out of this house. Even though the gas had been shut off, Alex felt like he was choking. The air, the rooms, all of it was filled with Norma, stifling his breaths as his head reminded him, every second, that she was gone, and she was never coming back.

    Summary

    A random day in the month of April 2016-

    After a performance in the coffee shop, Norma breaks down in tears but as usual Alex is there to comfort her and reassures her that everything she hates about herself, he believes are the best things about her.
    That is the worst summary ever- it should make more sense hopefully <3
