Author's Notes: A collection of DotHack drabbles and oneshots. A vague attempt to keep my muse alive in this category. Hehee. Kite/BlackRose as always. Enjoy.

(For Jonathan Priest)

"The leaves don't turn here."

Kite opens one eye to glance at his partner. "What?"

"The leaves don't change color here. It's not real." She looks frustrated. "How do we know that what we're doing is actually changing anything?"

He watches her through a ray of sunlight before answering quietly, "Because we are changing. That's how I know."

BlackRose falls silent for a moment, pondering his words. "So, it's the people who turn, right?"

"I like to think so."

Her expression clears and she smiles that smile he secretly loves. "Well, I guess it's alright then."

He smiles back and closes his eyes.

The End.
