    Summary

    I want you to taste my voice, Red, to feel my words on your tongue and swallow them down. Let them become you, and in doing so, allow a part of me into you. Allow this letter, the breath of my corporeal form, to brush past your lips and tongue, to be absorbed into the hot, pumping blood in your veins. Let it to dissolve into oxygen to fill your lungs, to permeate your alveoli and sustain you. Let it fill you, and make you full.

    Summary

    "Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
    Catra is an agent in time, at the whim of a war that rages eternally without meaning.
    Adora is a killing machine running on empty, fed up with a temporal-galactic spree of violence.
    Catra leaves Adora a letter in the ruins of a battlefield, and Adora responds.
    The rest isn't history, but the future and past colliding.

    Summary

    Make no mistake, I will defeat you. But what’s the point in winning if I don’t even get to entertain myself along the way? 
     

    All is fair in war—especially in a war that spans eras and tricks time. Ruin a rival agent’s operations then leave her a letter as a gloating taunt? Sure, so long as one is careful not to stumble right into an elaborate trap.

    (in which azula and katara are rival time-travelling agents who begin an unlikely and dangerous correspondence.

    Summary

    My Dear Lychee,

    That was clever. That was too clever. It was subtle and magnificent and terrifying and evident and delighting all at once.

    Not to mention dangerous. Seriously. Be more careful.

    But you have made the mistake every genius always, always falls into--you took all the others for fools.

    "There are thirty men buried in this hill," Red says.
    "At the same time?"

    Summary

    But now, Red was ready. She was ready.

    She and Blue had hidden themselves at the end of the timeline, braiding together half-burned strands and Shifting the past into the future until they had created something more like an alternate dimension than a part of the known world. The Agency and Garden had tried to find them, for a while, but they couldn’t. They never stood a chance.

    The nature of this hidden dimension was the reason why, when Garden and the Agency burned each other out, destroying the fabric of reality, disintegrating time from the start of the braid down, Blue and Red could watch it all happen, every inch as it turned to dust and fell into oblivion.

    ——

    Or, after eons of living in peace, Red and Blue watch from the edge of the universe as Everything comes to a close.

    Summary

    It’s always been her, within her. The hunger, the longing─ was always for her. Blue was always meant to find her and to send the first letter.

    It’s not done yet.

    For once uncertain of the future, Blue takes another step and slips away through time. She travels towards the one thing that no change of times could ever erase, the constant pull that can draw her in even millennia apart.
