    Summary

    She had the recorder in her hands but put it down without starting it up. “You look old,” she said instead, folding her fingers together, and I was so startled I burst out laughing. I did look old: my hair was in-between black and silver, and there were lines etched all over my face. I saw myself every day in the mirror, and every day I looked older.

    “Thanks,” I said, and when she smiled it was just a fragmentary thing, there and then gone again, sad but not bitter, not exactly.

    It was inevitable, really, that they were going to meet again.

    Oh this is the most beautiful and heart-wrenchingly painful story - it's just how it would go for Rob and Cassie; them meeting is inevitable, but them being anything together is just... hopeless and something brittle. The author's choice to parallel Rob&Cassie with with Kathy & Heathcliff is so perfect and entirely justified. I love this fic so much!

    A wonderful fic of what could've happened after Casablanca. Beautiful take on a deep relationship between two male friends - so heart-warming without being sentimental. It takes time to heal after being in the wars, but it's ultimately so worth it. I love this story.

    My absolute favourite Casablanca-fic. Ilsa's written with such /humanity/ in this - it's only too human to love different things in different people, to *be* a different person with different people. Such an utterly beautiful story!
