Title: In the Event of, Ch. 3

Summary: "His mouth twitches into a brief frown. They're working on this. Getting past this new habit of reassurance—I know. Of course. I know. Getting past the sour note that sounds every time either of them voices something that's gone powerfully unsaid almost as long they've known one another—I know you. I trust you. Always."
A/N: I guess this is four chapters with a kind of ending after all. This—or the next chapter, anyway—is the end point I had in mind when I started this back after Montreal aired, but I didn’t quite envision this path to it. As with the other pieces, it’s set after Montreal (7 x 02), but it’s spoiler free other than that and after that, not really engaging with what we’ve seen on canvas since then.

Summary: “It’s a kind of McGuffin. A dramatic reveal with unmistakable weight, but it’s not the center of the thing. With his heart pounding under her cheek and the two of them shivering with something that’s not quite unpleasant, she still knows that. She still believes. If it could tell them what happened—if it could tell them how—he would have said, long before now. She knows he would have.”
A/N: So this is it. No kind of resolution for what actually happened in those two months, but this is what my Brain wanted to tell about. As with the other pieces, it’s set after Montreal (7 x 02), but it’s spoiler free other than that and after that, not really engaging with what we’ve seen on canvas since then.
