    Summary

    these stories have a way of repeating themselves, of cycling just like the seasons. she makes the same choices. the same mistakes. he does, too. the stories go on, told and retold.

    tragedies, their tellers call them. do they ever learn? asks the rest.
    not for the sake of the story— she knows one day she'll wake up and it'll all have wound back to the start.

    but here, in the end after the end, the beginning before the start— epilogue, interlude, prologue, some amalgamation of all three— she would tell that audience that asks if they learn, we do, we do, we do. (ain't our fault the fates love a sad story.)
