Ratings/Warnings: PG - language; No standard warnings apply
Notes: Waaaay, way into the future of this story, and I think SWL can read my mind, because that picture fit these two perfectly.

Father Andrew didn’t even bother to brush away the cobwebs as he pushed through the service tunnels underneath the offices of the archdiocese. Damn all those bastards--why did they treat her this way?

Iron chains, and iron collars, and none of it ever set right with him. A creature of Heaven should be a creature free to move in body and spirit--one with full access to their awesome power. But they, with their quaking, imperfect souls could only stand a fraction of her radiance.

Now they had lost their rights to the law, in his eyes. )

Notes: This is a new voice for me, so I apologize if she’s a little rough or has a bit of emotional whiplash in the first few pieces. Hopefully she’ll solidify like a properly coagulating blood clot.  Edit: Thank you for the tags!

There were 1,446 dots in each panel above my head. Each panel had a width of 12 inches, and there were four columns of them between the two mint green curtains on either side of my cot. For privacy, the nurse had pulled the third curtain across the end of my space in the emergency room. I was in the limbo of triage, engulfed by the whims of a colorblind interior designer and the beeps, whines, screams, and murmuring medical jargon that was hospital drama.

4 columns and 4 rows is 16 panels of dots to distract me... )
