Title: Whoever Pays Any Attention To The Syntax Of Things
Fandom: Simon Spector
Prompt: #22, Libido
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Nobody is nice in this universe.
Summary: It was never once upon a time.
Word Count: About a hundred and twenty.
Author Notes: In most universes he's the one who died.

Her name was Robin. He keeps her corpse in a Case.

The mouth that could swear in seventeen languages, and had never said "please" in any of them. The throat he had kissed a thousand times, the feet that had once almost broken his knee. The fingers, so adept with weaponry, so shy in bed. The pill compartments under her nails, boosters, venoms, and worse things still in them. A tattoo in her left shoulder, a cross for every time she had defeated a "force of Good." An small sea of crosses, too many of them his.

The eyes that had flinched at nothing she or anybody else did.

The forehead where he had put the final bullet of their dance.

Makes me think of a Grant Morrison character: Oubliette, Nasthalthia ...
Now I'm wondering what she had to do to make him kill her.

I suspect existing was part of it. As I often say, Simon isn't a nice person.

My brain-fu is weak.
You know I had to read this four times before the name "Robin" clicked.

As I often say, Simon isn't a nice person.

Neither is she, apparently, which explains why they got along so ... okay, so well isn't quite the right word. Still.

I guess their 'relationship' had an Island of Stability. Time, entropy and the sheer amount of smarts'n'crazy brought about an explosive decay.

This is beautiful.

I'd respond in more detail but for the way things are tonight. The story definetely deserves it.
