  5. Summary

    Unseen moments from Orphan Black -- featuring Helena, Sarah, and Helena-and-Sarah.

    keyframe, n.
    a moment that seemed innocuous at the time but ended up marking a diversion into a strange new era of your life—set in motion not by a series of jolting epiphanies but by tiny imperceptible differences between one ordinary day and the next, until entire years of your memory can be compressed into a handful of indelible images—which prevents you from rewinding the past, but allows you to move forward without endless buffering.

    Summary

    Catra sighs and pulls out a check, waving it in front of Adora’s nose until she snatches it and surveys it. She watches Adora’s eyes bug out and grins triumphantly. “I happen to know,” she says calmly, “that your organization applied for a grant with my company. I also happen to know that our sales have gone up since people started talking about my relationship with you.”

    “Our fake relationship,” corrects Adora.

    Summary

    “Dasha, this jacket looks good,” Burger says and oh god, the bastard, he’s pulling his puppy eye. Singular, because his other eye is cybernetic and can’t look any cuter than an artificial orb, but his human eye sure is pulling out the big guns. “At least try it on?”

    “Okay, okay,” Dasha rolls her eyes, taking the jacket and slipping it on.

    “Ohhhhh shit,” Vang0 says, and huh.

    Dasha looks at herself in the mirror. The jacket is simple yet adds a bit of a rugged aura to her overall look. It’s warm and the inside has a nice smooth texture. And it has pockets.

    -

    A brief history of Dasha's green bomber jacket ft. friendship, patches, and shenanigans.

    Summary

    Summary: 1955. Under the placid veneer of suburban playparks and middle-class conformity churns a hidden London: femmes and butches dancing close in basement bars; clandestine love between women. To Sherlock Holmes, struggling private detective and mistress of disguise, it’s a realm she renounced years before. To Johnnie Watson, daredevil ambulance driver turned auto mechanic, it’s become a little too familiar. But when someone is murdered in the washroom of the city’s most notorious lesbian club, the investigation will lead both women to reconsider their assumptions about themselves, each other, and the world in which they live.

    Summary

    "I'm in a bit of a pickle, my dear," Aziraphale said over the telephone.

    Crowley was seized by immediate fury. Not even a decade, and they're at it again, he thought viciously. You'd think they'd be embarrassed enough to stay out of things for a few centuries at least, after botching the apocalypse like that.

    "Who's done something to you?" hissed Crowley.

    "Ah," said Aziraphale, in the quiet tone of someone who didn't mean to learn someone else's secrets and was mildly sheepish about it. "This crossword clue -- I'm stuck -- 1980s French fencer, thought you might know. It's eight letters and has a Q in it."

    "Trinquet," Crowley snapped, in the tone of someone who had revealed one of his secrets and was annoyed about it.
