Stay-Gold-not-Stay-Golden

what if when yang goes down, ruby’s the one who reaches her body first

and, gods, the blood, the blood’s everywhere

and blake and weiss are there trying to pry ruby away from the body because gods, they’re still in danger and they’re all going to die if they don’t move

but ruby just sits there cradling yang’s head in her lap like yang used to do when ruby had nightmares and would crawl into bed with yang and the two of them would sit in the darkness of yang’s room with no light but the moon coming in through the window and yang would hold her there in her lap until they’d both drift off into safer dreams

the one time that it was reversed and ruby was holding the older girl, there would be no comfort or waking up from the nightmare and crawling into the safety of her sister’s arms
