Set after the Season 7 finale and is spoilery. Hank asks an acquaintance for advice about his continuing complicated feelings about Sirena.

Not necessarily connected with my fics about Hank and Sirena, but doesn't contradict them either.

I may potentially write more about this idea.


Into You/Over You
Triana looked like she’d swallowed something rotten when Hank finished.

The old men wouldn’t understand – Brock might. He could not talk to Dean about this. Dermott was on a mission. At least Triana wasn’t involved.

He didn’t tell her it had been Dean.

Finally, Triana said:

“Are you still in love with her?”

“I don’t know!” He calmed himself. “I still want her. It just feels more like anger. But in that case, shouldn’t I be glad we’ve split?”

When Triana rose, she handed him the number for the OSI’s Enmity Registration service.

THE END

Thank you, that makes me happy to hear!

By the way, did you get around to reading The Silence of the Sirens? You know I don't usually pimp my own writing, but you were the requestor, after all. I think you might like it.

Heck, I thought I posted my review of that awhile back! Will do so soon, on your latest as well.

One about the Monarch's obsessive enmity with Rusty. Refers a bit to events in the latest season, but nothing spoilery or that requires having seen it.

A Butterfly Can Dream

It starts in Wide Wale’s indoor pool, usually. I’m tied to a chair, roughed up. I don’t even feel any metaphysical fear of death, I’m just disgusted picturing all that was Malcolm Fitzcarraldo in a mess across the marble tiles.

Then he is there in the doorway. He disposes of the lieutenant with a super-science death ray or something. The cold metal pressure against my temple lightens. Wide Wale turns, yelling.

Dr. Venture smirks and obliterates him.

Long strides approach. He raises my chin with the raygun barrel.

“What have they done to you?”

One about Triana after the ending of Raven Must Die. A bit spoilery, and probably pretty pointless if you haven't read the story.

Title is a Twilight reference lmfao lollerskaters roflcopter. Because that's what Raven is, after all.

A Dream of a Sparkling Vampire in a Glade
I stand in the overcast light of a glade. Dark forest walls. I turn, because I feel the bite of rain. Raven is there. I expect him to come closer to warm me. I want to wrap him up, but I’m not wearing my robes.

He raises a finger. The skin on his hand, and everywhere else it’s visible, is coated in white star-points. As I watch, another lights up, as if a skin cell flipped over, exposing something inorganic.

Another one for the reaper.

I wake thinking time has turned back, that I can save him.

THE END

Thank you very much, I'm always so happy when people enjoy my stuff.

I don't know whether you noticed, but Raven calling Triana "Ana" as a nickname in my fics is another subtle reference to terrible, terrible books. Because Ana is the protagonist of Fifty Shades of Grey...

... where the love interest is an Edward Cullen ripoff...

... just like Raven.
