I’ve seen a few different people asking, so I might as well go ahead and address it. I will be putting the parentlock ficlet on Ao3. Maybe tonight or maybe once it’s completed, I haven’t decided yet. But it will be there soon.
Parentlock part two will be coming tomorrow. I have to go to bed pretty soon because unfortunately I have a stupid job that requires me to get up at the asscrack of dawn. Okay, maybe not that early, but it feels like it. Anyway, I’ll get it to you guys tomorrow, I promise.
How long has it been since I last used the #Lizzington tag? I don’t know, but it feels like it’s been a long time.
So, here we have Liz, after a long work day, dropping in to see Red. Tom is at home, and he’s keeping himself busy with his own project, but she doesn’t know that. As far as she knows, he’s just hanging around, waiting for her… and she’s in no hurry to get back to him. Hmmmm…….
Red is a little guarded, understandably. He almost seems to be bracing himself when she asks if there’s any truth to Stone’s allegations… and then what I can only interpret as tentative relief, when she believes him, and when she listens to his story, and her questions come from genuine interest and intrigue, not accusation. He manages to meet her gaze a time or two, but only briefly. He’s not ready to get carried away.
And the clock! It’s always great to see Red tinkering/showing off those skilled hands. Maybe it’s a magical cuckoo clock, since not only did Liz readily accept the gift for Agnes, but she did it with A SMILE.
