UPDATE: Second version of Harm is up, hopefully this will hit a little more on target... although I'm pushing the timeline a bit (considering the transcripts I can find only mention a vague 'some weeks later', it should be long enough.) *crosses fingers*

Semi-final drafts, will do some more poking tonight and see what changes. Hmm. *pokes* Thoughts anyone? Too far off prompt? Still too vague to fit the fandom?

For All The Years That Do Us Harm

It's a different kind of hurt, when the life you've left behind was so much more than you'd ever imagined it could be. Forced back through that quantum sea, betrayed by the City's rightful heirs-- there's no solace here; even knowing those Atlantis suffered to protect will never share your nightmares. Because your world's so very small now, against the backdrop of all you could've done and all you might've been. It's a faint shadow of a life-- and you cry until your chest hurts and your eyes burn, because this still isn't real and won't ever be real again.


And These Cold Comforts Warm

Time mends some wounds, but nothing wears away the scars. Sometimes the world's still too small and the sky too large; when memories of loves and loss --nightmares of what almost was-- swallows up the days. But they stay nightmares now, wispy and half-alive, and the world's too small in all the right ways. A single flower, a touch, a smile, all the simple honest joys each moment brings. And when the nights loom large --memories burnt bright against the sky-- they focus on each other, on the bits of home they'd never truly lost, and it's enough.
