    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.

    Summary

    The rest of the words I hold in my heart I wish to whisper into your ears with my own voice, mark into your skin with my fingers, let you read in the staccato of my breath.

    I’m tired of waiting. So be prepared, my kingfisher; I’ve found a time and place to cross our paths.

    In order to keep Red, she could not have her now. It’s like telling her not to eat while holding honeycomb to her lips.
