Wow, this is gorgeous. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. This brought back the memories of those last few episodes of V, and how everything was weaved into this intricate pattern of lies, defeat and loss.
I really feel for Erica in this, for her loss and feeling of abandonment. You really captured her character well in this.
A few of my favourite lines:
"Thinking of poetry reminds you of your first kiss, the one smack dab in the library where you met, this time with War and Peace and Anna Karenina acting as your audience because you'd wanted him alone and no one bothered with Tolstoy on the weekends."
"The moonlight weeps onto your shoulders, breaking its fingers to reach you and spattering silver blood across your hair."
"It always does - buries your grief beneath a tangle of dirty clothes and case files and leaves you fine for another day, week, month, year...Tonight there is only the broken-fingered moonlight and the jacket heavy on your skin."
Really lovely job, Dax. Well done :)
