    Summary

    AU

    Lucy is a prisoner. Her cage has gilded bars but that doesn't stop it being a prison. To the outside world she's the darling of her home town but you know what they say. No-one knows what happens behind closed doors.

    Now circumstances bring back someone who Lucy hoped never to meet again and with him, quite possibly, the means to her demise.

    A story of sisterly love, illicit liaisons, desperate acts and the slimmest hope of freedom to choose.

    Summary

    “Can I trust you?” she asks.

    “Absolutely not,” Rufus says, and honestly, Garcia agrees. He’s nowhere near forgiving her, let alone trust.

    “Can I?” Lucy asks again.

    The journal predicts remorse behind Lucy’s eyes. All he can see now is a challenge. Prove me wrong, they say. See how I’ll crumble when you do. See how that makes you feel.

    He doesn’t trust her, yet, not with the music he likes nor his affinity for collecting turtlenecks. But he trusts her with his life, and she’ll trust him with hers. It’s funny how life and death seem so marginal and certain compared to Flynn’s magical ability to attract turtleneck sweaters, but it makes sense because Lucy Preston is both his lifeline and his curse.

    He nods. Slow enough to show he trusts her, but not because he wants to.

    A smorgasbord of thoughts and ramblings on Garcia Flynn’s character, framed through the fabled narrative of enemies to lovers. Yes, I am years late to writing for this fandom.

    Summary

    I used to be a real person, round and complete.
    Before.
    Before Homeland Security and Mason Industries.  Before the Lifeboat and the Mothership.  Before Emma’s final roll of the dice.
