WOW I am so sorry this took so long, @bella1694 and @sungscheps! I hope you guys don’t mind that I did one story for both of your prompts, since they sort of worked together. It is longer than all the others, so that kind of makes up for it, I guess.
Prompts: “I almost lost you.” AND “If you die, I’m gonna kill you.”

Note: I didn’t feel like researching medical stuff so I tried to be as vague as possible.
Watching “Cold Comfort,” and I just want to know, in-story, whose idea was it for the henchwomen to not wear pants. I mean, Mister Freeze’s hideout is literally frozen. It’s a frozen cave of a lab. He has kidnapped scientists there who are in heavy snow getups because, like, it’s cold. It is fuckin’-ass cold in there. But “Ice Maidens” numbers one through three are, like, fuck your pants.
I mean, I have to imagine it was their idea. I don’t think Mister Freeze in his monotone robotic voice was all “I am completely broken and destroyed and nothing gives me joy so I must rob others of their joy and also could you three show off your gams.” So these three ladies are volunteering to die of hypothermia just to look rad.
But still wearing the snow coats, because branding.
Some of you might be familiar with the Groke - the character from the Moomin stories. This cold silent creature was a representation of the loneliness and depression of Scandinavian winters.
She is searching for warmth and friendship, but scares away any living creature and returns to her frozen cave on the top of the mountain. I thought this drawing I did could be relevant now when days get shorter, darker and colder, and every now and then many of us feel the presence of the Groke.
