    Summary

    Dani has always been drawn to the underdog. The kids that don’t have the confidence or the means to fit in, to make friends, the kids who have been through something and need someone to lean on. It’s something Jamie has always gently teased her about - "sussed me out immediately, Poppins," - and it takes her back to her days before Bly, working with grieving children, children thrown into a new place where they didn’t know the language, children who couldn’t quite adjust to the expectations placed on them.

    Something about Clare is more personal, though.

    Clare reminds her of Jamie.

    Summary

    There were many things Dani Clayton could learn about herself after many nights struggling with insomnia.

    She could take up a new hobby, clean the apartment one more time, or she could check out some corners of the internet she had never planned to explore before.

    Luckily for her, there’s an app for that.

    Jamie Taylor wasn’t expecting to want reciprocal privileges from one of her newest listeners.

    But here we are. It looks like they might both be learning something about themselves after all...

    Summary

    Jamie, whose hard eyes look so wrong on her soft features, whose door Dani walked through not ten minutes ago, is holding her as if she herself is a work of art, like she is far more delicate and precious than the marble the sculptor must surely cherish; as if anything more than the most gentle touch will crush her like the petals of the orchid on the window sill.

    (Or, the one where Jamie’s a sculptor and Dani is her muse.)

    Summary

    "Do you want to get off the train with me?” Dani is clearly nervous, but her gaze never leaves Jamie’s even as her fingers tap anxiously against her leg. “Just for the night. We can explore for a few hours and then you… you can get another train tomorrow morning.”
