AU/Crossover in which Lix and Millie meet abroad and immediately warm to each other drinking and smoking in seedy bars - and end up in bed together (sharing accommodation is so much more convenient). Lix’s nose for news finds trouble eventually (to no one’s surprise) and she enlists her lover’s help to solve a case the police is treating with shocking disregard. They succeed and the criminal is brought to justice - but they argue and part ways soon after, the memory of Susan still too fresh on Millie’s mind to commit fully to another. Each is miserable in her own loneliness without the other but too proud to admit it, and there are no postcards from Millie for Lix, though she waits in one place, at one address for a while before moving on herself after a while.
Years later they run into each other - a déjà vu of smoke and alcohol, only the seedy bar is in London this time, rather than some exotic and remote location. They have both made peace with the ghosts of their pasts, and their bodies still remember the other’s touch - so familiar, and yet new and changed. They dance, they drink, they smoke until the barkeep throws them out, and inevitably they spend the night together - for old time’s sake… or is it a new beginning for the two?
fun game try to guess which scene made me nearly pass out
This show genuinely has more subtext than any five minutes of Sherlock but because it’s girls the internet has maintained it’s shit.
