Change one thing, change everything. Mount Weather offers Clarke a deal instead, and everything gets really complicated--especially when Clarke finds herself being held prisoner in Polis.
Basically a rewrite of everything from "Blood Must Have Blood" onward, because I am Clexatrash and I enjoy the masochistic pain of worldbuilding. Apparently.
Don't stop trying to find me here amidst the chaos
Though I know it's blinding, there's a way out
Say out loud: We will not give up on love now
No fear, don't you turn like Orpheus
Just stay here; hold me in the dark [..]
I'll show you good, restore your faith
I'll try and somehow make a meaning of the poison in this place
Convince you love, don't breathe it in
You were written in the stars that we are swimming in
- Sara Bareilles, 'Orpheus'
- Part 2 of Gravity
Set right after "Blood must have Blood" Part 1. Clarke struggles to get her friends and Lexa struggles with her guilt. (Basically I just wrote something that could possibly save their relationship)
