“Go. It’s fine.”

Andy trembles under his hand, and she nods, her gaze ricocheting off his.  For the space of one breath he thinks she’ll reach for him; Nick braces himself. He doesn’t know how he’ll do this -- be the partner she needs -- if she touches him.

Instead, she edges past to go to Sam. He watches her back; it’s habit. He barely sees her now, her body a blue smudge, a dot on the horizon as he stands on a distant shore.

She laughs in her sleep, this magical woman. Nick knows he’ll never witness it again.

AAAAH all the feels. That last line is just ah-ma-zing.

I feel the same about this show - I ship everyone with everyone it's batshit!

I have the same bittersweet feelings about Andy and Nick that you've just perfectly captured here.


Thank you, thank you, thank you, K. As much as I love writing, I'm so far away from it now; getting a comment from you is lovely validation. Makes me feel less like I'm talking on the phone without anyone on the other end. <3

I want to hug them all.

I agree, this is one of the few shows where every ship makes perfect sense. I think I just want everyone on the show to be happy.

This was heartbreaking in its simplicity. He can't handle her touching him. And yet he knows exactly what it means to let her go.

Great juxtaposition with the story she told Sam.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for reading and commenting -- especially with your pretty, pretty Sammy icon. ;)
