yet shape this dream of centuries

Work Text:

Dag's first garden dies: the soil is poisoned. Furiosa finds her crouched over the remains, moaning. She doesn't know what to say, but she sits next to Dag and guards her grief.

Dag's second garden dies: the desert wind comes. Dag howls, and Furiosa doesn't stop her. She sits next to Dag, silent.

Dag's third, fourth, fifth garden dies.

Dag's sixth garden survives. It brings small vegetables, and one berry: red, gold-dotted, crowned with shockingly green leaves.

Dag puts it on Furiosa's tongue. It tastes sweet and tangy, too loud, perfect.

Furiosa bites down - and pulls Dag into a kiss.
