    Summary

    “Eyh, it’s like a mother animal nipping her children when they misbehave! It’s cute, must be a brotherly thing that they’ve gotten back into now that they’re closer,” Nico “I’ve-no-sense-of-normal-human-behavior” Goldstein quips brightly when he mentions it to her.
    “I’ve never seen Credo 'nip' Kyrie!”
    “Ya can’t judge from one instance, ya know. Each family is unique.”
    Yeah, his own family surely is unique.

    Summary

    "They come upon the plant one morning, or perhaps it’s one night – it’s hard to say in the starless glow of the Underworld. It sprouts from the floor of the cave they’ve sought shelter in, a grotesque amalgamation of almost flesh-like, glistening tendrils coiled around puffy round flowers, each as tall as a human. In the dimness, it almost seems to shine, iridescent colors pulsating on its soft surface.

    Dante, of course, is immediately drawn to it."

    In which Vergil curses his fate and his brother.

    Summary

    Dante is pretty happy in the Underworld, all things considered: Vergil is with him and he really couldn't wish for more. But time isn't linear there, and Dante glimpses a younger Vergil fighting Mundus.

    Summary

    He closes his eyes and shivers as an oversized fingertip strokes along one of his pinions. He feels so tired.

    Vergil knows. He knows everything in Dante’s mind, here. Then again, when didn’t he? “Cease fighting this hopeless battle. Come to me, brother.”

    He shivers again and sways in place. If it had been Vergil in his completion asking that… But Urizen is only a piece of him, warped out of his proper shape in the absence of his balancing forces.

    “Perhaps,” Urizen says softly. “But completion for you or I has always included us both.”
