Cristina was there, in the middle of the room, looking up at one of the chandeliers. There was a row of three of them, unlit but glittering with crystal drops.

Mark let the door fall shut behind him and she turned. She didn’t look surprised to see him. She was wearing a plain black dress that looked as if it had been cut for someone shorter than her — it probably had been.

“Mark,” she said. “Couldn’t you sleep?”

“Not well.” He glanced ruefully down at his arm, though the pain had gone now that he was with Cristina. “Did you feel the same?”

She nodded. Her eyes were bright. “My mother always said that the ballroom in the London Institute was the most beautiful room she’d ever seen.” She looked around, at the Edwardian striped wallpaper, the heavy velvet curtains looped back from the windows. “But she must have seen it very much alive and filled with people. It seems like Sleeping Beauty’s castle now. As if the Dark War surrounded it with thorns and since then it has slept.”

Mark held out his hand, his wound circling his wrist like Julian’s sea-glass bracelet circled his. “Let us wake it up,” he said. “Dance with me.”

Judging by the tags my last omnic x human girl post there are a lot of you who wanted art of this pair ;) Tho this one is specifically for @fischotterchen, cuz your tags on my last post made my day. So have some cute bedtime cuddling. Do omnics need to sleep? Probably not, but hey I think would still indulge their partners.   

Seriously, I am up for anything with human and omnic pairs. I really want to know peoples head cannons on such things.

yoooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :D I AM MAGIC *waves wand* EXPECTO PIZZA

I completely understand what you’re saying there, friend. I’ve felt similarly mweh about canon in recent times, I just couldn’t connect with it anymore, you know?? but then I watched and started writing for Yuri on Ice, and somehow it just totally revitalised me!! like, writing different characters made me remember what makes Dean and Cas unique to me. because we know them so damn well, you know? we know they’re gonna try to do the right thing, even when their own life is on the line. it’s not every show where you can know the characters like that, and trust them like that, right to the edge of existence.

like, characters don’t have to be pushed that far for me to enjoy the story and love ‘em to pieces, but there’s something about it that does feel special. and particularly with these two characters, angel and human… man, it just strikes a chord in me. I think I was taking it for granted for a while there and taking a step back really made me fall back in love with their bond.

SO LIKE THROW UR HANDS IN THE AIR FOR REDISCOVERING A STRONGER LOVE OF DEANCAS AND CANONVERSE STUFF \o/ and I’m so freakin honoured that it was something I wrote that made you feel that way!!!!! goddamn!!!!!!!!! I’M GONNA BLUSH MY WAY RIGHT OUT OF MY SOCKS. MY SOCKS ARE GOING TO BE LEFT ON THE FLOOR AND I WILL BE LEVITATING ABOVE THEM. HECK.
