evening photo break

“There’s not a single day that goes by that I don’t miss running to work to be able to work opposite you, my friend.”

Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul, Emmys 2014

Heaven

“Hands, put your empty hands in mine

And scars, show me all the scars you hide

And hey, if your wings are broken  

Please take mine so yours can open, too

‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) curled into Jason’s side, the fire flickering as the movie showed Jack Skellington walking through Halloween town, the catchy tune of the song, mixed in with Dick’s added singing, filled the room. But all she could focus on was the blank page of the notebook in her lap, her pen tapping against her thigh as she thought. Scrunching up her nose and turning to glare at Jason as he snatched it away, he only smiled as he took the pen and put them both aside, then pulled her closer to him and nodding towards the screen. (Y/N) sighed and turned her attention to the movie, getting lost in the world of ‘the night before Halloween’.


“Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes

And hurt, I know you’re hurting, but so am I

And, love, if your wings are broken

Borrow mine 'til yours can open, too

'Cause I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) frowned as she watched Jason bury his face in his hands, a weep escaping the prison his fingers made, she strolled forward, sitting on the edge of the bed and bringing him into an embrace, letting him bury his head in her shoulder as she whispered soothing words to him. All the while glancing around the room until she discovered the source of his tears, her eyes landing on an old photo of his mother, (Y/N) heaved and placed her hands on either side of Jason’s head and lifting it until their eyes met, she gave him a soft smile before dragging her hands down to his own and pulling him off the bed and into the kitchen, digging out a tub of ice cream and handing it and a scooper to him, before she started telling him about her day to get his mind on a different topic, the gears in her mind already working on where she could hide the photo.


“Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you

Love, you’re not alone,

'cause I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we can’t find heaven,

I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you

Love, you’re not alone,

'cause I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) watched Jason read over her mug of tea, a soft smile hidden behind the ceramic pumpkin shaped cup, the sounds of a broken AC rattling and the soft scratching every time he flipped a page filling the small apartment, she took a sip of the hot beverage when he glanced over, giving her a smile as he lifted up the book, showing the title to be ‘Little Women, Good Wives’ causing (Y/N) to giggle, sending ripples through the tea’s surface as he returned to his reading, not hearing her whisper into the cup.


“Yeah, you’re all I never knew I needed

And the heart—sometimes it’s unclear why it’s beating

And, love, if your wings are broken

We can brave through those emotions, too

'Cause I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) laughed as Jason picked her up, swinging her around before tossing her into the giant pile of leaves outside of the manor, she flailed her arms a bit, before her head finally broke the surface, her cheeks cold and her breath visible as she screeched in joy, clearing the way as Jason jumped in besides her. Grabbing (Y/N) around the waist and pulling her back down with him. They both popped up laughed, and she got a glimpse of Jason as she tried to catch her breath, leaves stuck to his hair, his cheeks red from the cold, his eyes screwed shut, and his mouth wide open as laughed rolled out of him. (Y/N) grinned and wrapped her arms around his neck, pulling him into a breathless kiss.


“Oh, truth—I guess truth is what you believe in

And faith—I think faith is having a reason

And I know now, love, if your wings are broken

Borrow mine 'til yours can open, too

'Cause I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) laughed excitedly as she threw her arms up, her hair flowing behind her as the roller coaster sped down the tracks, looping around before leveling out, and (Y/N) glanced over to Jason, who was laughing, but not at the ride, as he was looking directly at her. Giggling she grabbed his hand and lifted it with hers as they coasted up another ramp and sped down the other side, shrieking with delight as they pulled to a stop, tugging him out the minute they were free of the restraints, and towards the photo machine.


“Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you

Love, you’re not alone,

'cause I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we can’t find heaven,

I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you

Love, you’re not alone,

'cause I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) grinned as she twirled around in the dress, showing it off to the others, who all clapped in delight, issuing compliments and congratulations as she left the room, dizzy with happiness she slipped out of the outfit and placed it back in the bag, before heading out to the others, who all held large bags with a dress each. She smiled, already thinking of the final words for the vows she would speak in less than a week.


“I’ll be your eyes 'til yours can shine

And I’ll be your arms, I’ll be your steady satellite

And when you can’t rise, well, I’ll crawl with you on hands and knees

'Cause I… I’m gonna stand by you”


(Y/N) gazed into Jason’s eyes, her hands gripping his as she finished speaking her vows, her words only loud enough for him to hear her, a soft smile stretching across her lips as the Officiator spoke the final words, and then the so long awaited words as Jason swooped down and captured (Y/N)’s lips with his own, cheers and applause erupting from friends and family.


“Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through (come on)

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you

Love, you’re not alone,

'cause I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you

Love, you’re not alone,

'cause I’m gonna stand by you

Love, you’re not alone Oh, I’m gonna stand by you

 (Even if we can’t find heaven, heaven, heaven) Yeah, I’m gonna stand by you”


Jason shuttered as he held (Y/N)’s body close to his, combing through her hair with his fingers as he whispered her vows to him into her ear, rocking back and forth while tears streamed down his muddy, blood stained face. His helmet and domino mask long forgotten and tossed away in favor of trying to bring his wife back to him, wishing to every deity he knew of for her skin to not be as ice cold as it was, or for her heart to be as silent, or for her body to be as limp. But none of it worked, and he broke down, he sobs interrupting the words he so desperately wanted to finish, hoping they would spark the life (Y/N) always carried in her eyes, but they didn’t. and (Y/N) didn’t wake up, ever again.
