wait hold the fuck up how about Sigma/Delta/Wash
They are a complicated problem in need of a solution. A series of variables formed and reformed through countless equations, countless conflicts, countless lives and life times, and each time Delta doesn’t know what to say to it. How does one turn the twist of math into the turn of answers? How do you account for reincarnation, souls traveling the twisted weft and weave of time to always find a way back together? How does one quantify a gaze shared six spans ago and echoed across a crowded bar during the middle of some sporting event he could care less for? How do you figure out which variables are significant and which are not? What answer should he reach for it to be statistically significant?
They haven’t seen him yet this pass. Delta is certain of that. The math says this time he’s the one that gets to know, that gets to remember, that has to attempt to reforge the bonds. The numbers don’t tell him how. They don’t give him the words to say or ways to explain that will twist them back to him with this new turning of time. There is no solution distilled from the purest form of knowledge which will explain why it is they should even look to him when it is Sigma that is their spark, and David who is their heart. And what, what is he?
Does the mind have any place in love? Is it not a thing of passion, of impulse, of emotion in simpler terms? How does one who seeks to understand, to pick apart and piece together, ever to fit? Yet with each life time they find him. Choose him, pull him into their arms like he’s a life raft and they are drowning. For the life of him, he doesn’t know why.
Hundreds of cycles, hundreds of lives, and still the equations spin out before him. Never can he solve for x. Only fret until there is no point anymore. Fret until the papers are scattered to the wind and David’s hands are in his hair and Sigma’s lips on the column of his neck, and his own voice a high, needy whine.
Maybe he doesn’t have it yet, but Delta prays he has another hundred life times more to try and find it. Because it would also mean he has those lifetimes to spend with them.
