"I'm not threatened by every pair of legs you watch go by

I don't cringe when you stare at women it's just a thing called guy

I don't notice your sideways glances or where your loyalty lies

I'm secure and out of me it's hard to get a rise"

Alanis Morissette, "Doth I Protest Too Much"


She wonders how she received this

s2e2c2o2n2d chance

because she understands

that no one should even be

a_c_k_n_o_w_l_e_d_g_i_n_g her

But he claims to have seen a

strong, brave heart underneath all the rumors

(though she's pretty sure her face reads—still—



Years go by &…



He's still there, by her side

It's not much of a wonder

He showed that same loyalty

to his two (now ONE) best friends

But maybe…that loyalty

will wane



every guy is bound to…

"notice" the females that pass

So she lets it go on

She can't be controlling

if she is, he might


But that doesn't take away her right to



It's actually

o n e femme in particular

Even though George married her & they have

twins (who would've guessed?)

Mari's beau still


for her, to some degree

So she'll cry & try even mOrE to ignore it



She can't take it anymore

She rather wants him to


But he'll kiss away her tears & explain why he didn't—

He loves Mari & George too much to do that to them


D: Awwr. I love Lee's loyalty in this. Funny, in a way… This is kinda Epilogue-compliant… O.o Anywho, I'd love to read/do more of them! XD So hop on the Marielee ship!

Thanks for reading, and please review!

-mew-tsubaki :D

2017 note: Another ship I've only written once but counts as part of my overall headcanon (with kids, even!). I just. I adore Lee and like to think he has better capacity to see the good in people than the twins or others do, so he would give Marietta a chance. After all, she did join the D.A., so she can't be all bad, y'know? :'))) *has art to post for them, too, tbh* XD
