Disclaimer: Warehouse 13, the world and the characters that inhabit it do not belong to me in any way, though sometimes I lie awake at night wishing that they did and what I’d do with them if they did. And then I write those thoughts down.
Summary: When Mrs Frederic sends H.G. on her way with the astrolabe, she also sends her off with very explicit instructions. But Helena’s never been all that good at following orders.
A/N: Right then, here it is. The smut that would not end has finally found the finish line. I don’t usually ask for people to leave reviews or anything, but this fic has been kicking my backside for months now (actual months. I mean, I started it when the episode aired!) and I’d really love to know what you think. So even if you just drop me a private message or something, it would really mean a lot.
i was just guessing
at numbers and figures
pulling your puzzles apart
Five moments that happened to HG Wells and Myka Bering, and five that never will.
FUCK YOU AND YOUR TAGS REDLANCE
i’m exhausted with loving
no fight in me - i’m defeated
i’m fooled, i can’t help it
you make my heart so helpless
You put your arms around me
And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I’m home
Myka, I can’t!
I’M NOT QUESTIONING YOUR VALUE. I’M CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR MOTIVES
The second gif, Myka’s reaction; she KNOWS Helena is not so selfish, that she’s noble. She knows it better, because she knows Helena better than anyone else, ever HG herself. Then, years back, she didn’t know what “I can’t” was all about, but now she has it all figured out, and she sees Helena’s struggle, and feels sorry for her; and she will not rant, she’s not even disappointed or angry, she will take her hand and lead her through it. Because she knows that HER HELENA is somewhere inside and she just needs this little push to figure it all out too.
well fuck you very much. But also accurate and meshes with a few things Jaime and Jo have said about the place their characters are in and the awareness and compassion they have for each other (i.e. the fact that they are stupidly noble even when they shouldn’t be)
