    Summary

    She remembers Frank in her apartment that last night before he left. How he’d kept his backpack slung over his shoulder as he’d hovered in her doorway and then her living room; and the way he couldn’t seem to settle his hands - on the back of a chair, on the strap of his bag.

    “I need- I need space to try this, yeah?

    But not from you, Karen. Not from you."

    Summary

    For the first time in their acquaintanceship, friendship, relationship, whatever the hell ‘ship’ this was, she felt herself shut down in his presence. Like a flipped switch Karen could almost physically feel the walls flying up between them. Distance that had never existed settled perfectly into place, like this desolate valley spanning between them had always separated the paralegal and Marine.

    -Or- All the shit Karen has been through finally catches up with her. And Frank is... well Frank.

    Summary

    It's December twentieth, and Karen has a gaudy poinsettia sitting on a table by the window that could theoretically be visible from outside, and two sets of bookcases draped in fairy lights she honestly hasn't bothered to switch on for three days now.

    Summary

    “You just…” she started. “You don’t have to spend it alone.”

    Because she knew he would. She knew that Curtis still had family, family who couldn’t know Frank was alive, and that David would be gone, but even if neither of those things were true, that he’d still spend it alone anyway. That he wouldn’t want to impose his baggage on anyone else. It wasn’t an easy day.

    “You can spend it with me,” she finished delicately.

    But it wasn’t an easy day for her, either. He knew that, too.

     

    Post-Daredevil season 3. Karen invites Frank over for Christmas. Fluff, pining, and gift giving ensues.
