It’s weird how when you’re gone for a long time, the things you left behind are exactly how you left them. I know that doesn’t sound like it’s weird, it’s just what you’d expect from inanimate objects, but it actually happens. It’s weird.
You think about the you that left those things in those places, and everything that’s happened to you since, and it doesn’t track. It doesn’t feel possible, even though it’s not just possible, it’s unavoidable. You will always live in the remnants of the life you’ve led up until this point, making do with whatever you’ve left for yourself.
Alice Isn’t Dead, Part 1 Chapter 9: Go Home Again
idk if anyone’s done this already but a Sportarobbie hospital AU, where Robbie is a talented surgeon and Sport is a nurse who helps him in the operating theatre.
Sport thinks that Robbie is so gifted at what he does and how he saves people, and Robbie just thinks of it as a job and doesn’t see much else to it. he’s pretty private and always sits on his own in the break room and doesn’t socialise with others.
one day someone is rushed in for emergency surgery and Robbie can’t save them, even after trying all he can. he’s really shaken about it and Sport can’t help himself and tries to get Robbie to open up and talk about it. eventually, Robbie cries and talks to Sportacus and they share a heart to heart on the steps outside the hospital. after that, Robbie says hi to Sportacus every time they pass each other, and Sportacus sits with Robbie in the cafeteria.
