    Summary

    AU from the end of Season 2, Episode 12 "Better Angels". Inspired by Hozier's song Arsonist's Lullabye.

    She saw something, then. The look of a man who’d seen and done too much, who had backed himself into such a dark corner of his mind that he'd forgotten the light switch was in his own hand. “I’ve done too much, hurt too many of-”

    “So, what?” She took a step forward. “You’re just gonna roll over and let the groaners get you and hope that sacrifice means something other than devastation for those people up there?”

    In which Rick never stabbed Shane, a new arrival manages to warn them of the herd before they reach the farm, and Shane learns the metaphorical lightbulb in your mind goes both ways, not just off.

    Summary

    Frank Castle is a boxer at the top of his game. Laconic and anti-social, he has a reputation for being an incredibly-tough interview.

    Karen Page is a sports reporter trying to prove herself in a male-dominated field. She's done playing games--trying to be the "Cool Girl" who caters to the male fantasy--and now she's on a mission to take no shit.

    "For a while, the fact that an interview with Castle lasting longer than 5 minutes even existed was big news. Splashed all over the message boards—circulated among boxing and Castle fans alike. The very concept that someone actually got the man to sit down for more than a breath of time and give multiple-sentence answers to a question—it was huge. Massive. It was the only thing Castle fans could talk about.

    Until three months later, when Frank Castle disappeared.

    Then that was the news. It was the only news."

    Summary

    “Is she a friend?”

    He shrugs, though it’s a stiff movement. He knows he should just say yes, because it’s not untrue, because it’s the easiest way to explain what Karen is to him. But it also feels wrong, because friend seems like such an easy word to hold the complicated swirl of emotion he feels when he thinks about Karen. It’s both too much and too little to describe what she is to him -- a person who has been ally and advocate and antagonist all rolled into one, whose name has been both an invocation and affliction, whose memory sets off a warning light behind his eyes and a low, steady burn of longing across his veins.


    Frank Castle, after.
