Summary: Nesta and Cassian go on their first date and try to figure out how they work when they aren’t expected to bicker all the time. Nesta has a candid conversation with Feyre about their mother. Later, as Nesta and Cassian are beginning to find a rhythm as a couple, an emergency interrupts their progress.
Notes: This is… going to be 5 parts now. Just an FYI. I don’t know how this happened. Thanks this time to @acourtofstarsanddreams for helping me figure out jobs and apartments, and @illyriantremors for helping me make their first date more awkward :D
Part one, Part two : AO3 for comments :this chapter rated T : tw brief mention of Feyre’s abuse
When Nesta made this date, she wasn’t thinking clearly.
She considered canceling, considered calling and just saying that it was
a mistake, no hard feelings, that she wasn’t ready to go out with
Instead, when she called Cassian the next day, she reminded him that she
lived outside the city and that he would likely need to leave early to
make it to her place on time. She still had that nagging question in the
back of her mind and had considered backing out then. But the smooth,
confident tone in his voice had done something to her doubts, and by the
time Nesta had shoved her phone back into her pocket, they had decided
on a restaurant and a time and he knew her address.
“There is a mountain very high and bare…whereon it is given out that witches hold their dance on Walpurgis night.”- Jacob Grimm, 1883
Like Halloween, Walpurgis
has its roots in ancient pagan customs, superstitions and festivals. At
this time of year, the Vikings participated in a ritual that they hoped
would hasten the arrival of Spring weather and ensure fertility for
their crops and livestock. They would light huge bonfires in hopes of
scaring away evil spirits.
But the name “Walpurgis” comes from a very different source. In the 8th
Century, a woman named Valborg founded the Catholic convent of
Heidenheim in Wurtemburg, Germany. She herself later became a nun and
was known for speaking out against witchcraft and sorcery. She was
canonized a saint on May 1, 779. Since the celebration of her sainthood
and the old Viking festival occurred around the same time, over the
years the festivals and traditions intermingled until the hybrid
pagan-Catholic celebration became known as Valborgsmässoafton or Walpurgisnacht – Walpurgis Night.
May-Eve night shares many of the traditions of Halloween and is, in fact, directly opposite Halloween on the calendar. And according to the ancient legends, this night was the last chance for
witches and their nefarious cohorts to stir up trouble before Spring
reawakened the land.
