don't blink

Aries & Virgo
  • Virgo, in a staring contest with Aries: Your gonna lose.
  • Aries, wide-eyed, trying to make Virgo blink: Never. I have $2 riding on this, and I want to buy some fries.
  • Virgo, scoffs: You know fast food is not good for you.
  • Aries:
  • Virgo:
  • Aries: Look, just because you have a strange addiction to freshly clean laundry and My Little Pony merch doesn't mean I'm gonna go over board with my love of french fries and pizza.

Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink!

A Blink AU starring Tanya.

-

'Tanya Adeola duck, now.’

Tanya barely had time to register her shock before she ducked. Whoever had written it knew her name. It seemed like they were looking out for her.

Despite the warning, Tanya still jumped when the window behind her smashed.

Something bounced off the wall and broke on the as it fell. Without the warning, it would have hit Tanya directly on the head.

Pottery crushed under her trainers as Tanya stepped around.

She shone the light of her torch to the garden. There was no one there. The only thing apart from weeds was a winged statue, sliver under the moonlight. The angel had pale hands covering its face.

Tanya turned away. The person had written about an angel. And their warning about ducking had saved her. Maybe she should beware the angel.

Tanya jumped as the last scrap of wallpaper fell down. Usually she wasn’t so jumpy but Wester Drumlin had left her with an uncomfortable feeling she couldn’t shake off.

There was more writing.

'Love from the Doctor (1969)’

Tanya didn’t want to stick around for longer than necessary, so took a photo of the strange warning with her mobile phone instead of April’s camera.

Tanya ran out without turning back but if she had, she would seen the angel outstretch a stone arm and widen its mouth to reveal sharp, pointed teeth.

I love silly details in stories like the Yale T-shirt Rachel "steals" from Quinn. How often does Quinn get to wear it and how long does it last before it's finally worn out and discarded? Is it the only item of clothing one takes from the other on occasion? Does Rachel get something else to take with her that belongs to Quinn when the t shirt finally gives out?

That t-shirt get’s pretty damn worn out. Neither one of them really want to part with it, even when it’s faded and threadbare. I feel like Rachel would tuck it away in the back of a drawer rather than ever throw it out. 

Quinn does occasionally get to wear it. Rachel lets her because the shirt always smells like Quinn again afterwards, and that makes it better. 

I think they probably borrow clothes out of one another’s closets a lot. Well, maybe Rachel more than Quinn. ;)  Although I think Rachel probably has a robe that Quinn steals all the time to make breakfast in. 

As for Rachel, in lieu of the Yale t-shirt, she probably likes to snag one of her wife’s many cardigans to snuggle up in when it’s chilly.
