Memento Mori, Chapter 19

Bit of a long chapter this time. (Almost 8000 words; I've been trying to keep to around 5000 for ease of reading, but I got carried away, haha. At least it's not like last time, where I divided a chapter because it was getting too long and it ended up 3 chapters.)

( Fake cut to chapter 19 (Dreamwidth Mirror)) In which the Library discuss where Blink might have "sneaked away" to, and Blink finds that she's not precisely in the company of friends any more - although precisely how much trouble she is in, right now, hasn't quite sunk in yet.

In other news, I've been fiddling about with my plot for "Future Tense"; I think I've got such a bad case of writer's block because I have lots of notes, and a general idea of where I'm taking it, but... there doesn't really seem to be much cohesiveness with it all.

Lastly, I was listening to Adele "I'll Be Waiting" while I was at the bus stop last night (because it's one of my favourite tracks, right now). Usually, I think of it as Sepp's (Lines like "Yes, I swam dirty waters; But you pushed me in" particularly remind me of her and Hack's relationship XD) but a certain red jet bullied his way into my consciousness and said "MINE". Soooo he can have it as well. ¬_¬ (The track itself, on YouTube)

"I'll Be Waiting"
Hold me closer, one more time,
Say that you love me in your last goodbye,
Please forgive me, for my sins,
Yes, I swam dirty waters,
But you pushed me in.

I've seen your face, under every sky,
Over every border and on every line.0
You know my heart, more than I do,
We were the greatest, me and you.

But we had time against us,
And miles between us,
The heavens cried,
I know I left you speechless.
But now the sky has cleared and it's blue,
And I see my future in you,

I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again,
I'll put my hands up,
I'll do everything different,
I'll be better to you.

I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again,
I'll put my hands up,
I'll be somebody different,
I'll be better to you.

Let me stay here for just one more night,
Build your world around me,
And pull me to the light.
So I can tell you that I was wrong,
I was a child then, but now I'm willing to learn.

But we had time against us,
And miles between us,
The heavens cried,
I know I left you speechless,
But now the sky has cleared and it's blue,
And I see my future in you.

I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again,
I'll put my hands up,
I'll do everything different,
I'll be better to you,
I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again,
I'll put my hands up,
I'll be somebody different,
I'll be better to you,

Time against us,
Miles between us,
Heavens cried,
I know I left you speechless
Time against us,
Miles between us,
Heavens cried,
I know I left you speechless,
I know I left you speechless

I'll be waiting,
I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again,
I'll put my hands up,
I'll do everything different,
I'll be better to you,
I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again,
I'll put my hands up,

I'll be somebody different,
I'll be better for you.
"I'll Be Waiting" as written by Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, Paul Epworth
