You must be she I was seeking )


I am not to speak to you—I am to think of you when I sit alone, or wake at night alone,

I am to wait—I do not doubt I am to meet you again,
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.

Pairing: pre-Susan/Teatime
Summary: For the first time since he was very young indeed, Teatime is having a little trouble keeping his mind on the job. Susan, Teatime, and the irresistible attraction of fear.

The trilling wire in the blood
Sings below inveterate scars
Appeasing long forgotten wars.

"Burnt Norton", T. S. Eliot

Fostered alike by beauty and by fear )




The ruling passion conquers reason still )




That which is only living can only die )

What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden.

Chapter 2 )

Bonus stuff time!
First of all, some music:
Slow Burn, from David Bowie's 2002 album Heathen
Asleep at Last,  from The Wailin' Jennys' 2011 album Bright Morning Stars

And here's the best picture I could find of the W Washington that shows the BATS! (View it at the Huge magnification to get in there and see that I'm not kidding about the bats.)

I know I'm a little weird about that, but they were what made me absolutely fall in love with the building. It was built in 1917 as the Hotel Washington, and it's pretty much right across the street from the White House. When I first saw it, the Hotel Washington had actually closed and the building was in the process of being renovated before reopening as the W Washington. Now it has a super swanky interior that marries modern and traditional design that I thought would suit Auggie and Annie to a T. (Not that I've ever actually been inside--like Annie says, the cheapest rooms cost enough per night to make my wallet whimper. Some of the suites cost upwards of $1200 a night.) If you'd like to see some interior shots of the hotel, check out the photos on their website.
