okay, it stopped snarling when i turned the flashlight on it, so i think it’s done.
this is either the last chapter of Pyrotechnics or something quite close. perhaps there’ll be a Juliet-centric epilogue. but this really wants to be the last chapter. just look at that pithy ending! i digress…warnings:
AU - Fateverse. OCs. ageism. technobabble. depression. kids who see the future. heterosexual character in a homoromantic relationship [while canon!Wade is pansexual, savant!Wade is not]. language: pg-13 (primetime tv plus s*** and f***).pairing:
asexual (but homoromantic) Nate/Wade.timeline:
a week or two after I Can Science
marvel owns all the characters, i just made more alternate universe versions of them.notes:
1) title from the Ellie Goulding song. 2) Juliet is perceptive, intuitive, and incredibly persistent. 3) 'broken things can't fix themselves' is a little gem of wisdom from the Waking Man universe's version of Domino. 4) i'm told that the person Five is based on has recently started making near-constant "your face" jokes in an effort to reduce her fluent swearing. it was too awkwardly hilarious to pass up. 5) the sub-lev is the mag-lev subway that serves the understructure of the Fidelis District (the majority of their commerce actually goes on in vast underground malls, some of which look directly out to sea). remind me to add "map of the District" to the list of unreasonable demands for free art from Moriarty... 6) Natalie's personal rule has stopped her from dating probably four or five Wades. eh, her loss.
