Summary: What happens to Lilia, but not yet what happens after. Sequel to no surrender, no retreat.
Notes: Finally managed to finish this: I've been trying to write it as long as no sweet moment set aside, so I'm glad I did. So also just as rough and uneven in characterization given the long period of time it's been in development hell. This and no surrender, no retreat were originally planned as one story but I couldn't make it work at the time.
skip
I'm not sure whether this would qualify for the season bonus or not given that Lilia dies. On the other hand, given the setting is basically "everything sucks for everyone forever", she's definitely treated as well as everyone else. ...also wow, I am the winner of the "ironic titles" award.

Notes: Super rough because I don't actually remember where I was going with it. Probably uneven on characterization since it's been at least a year since I've written these characters.
