Fifteen Drabbles for Fifteen Pairings

001. Running In Place {Gale/Madge}

Two ships passing in the night. Strangers on a train. Stories like theirs always had names of ways to move, to go, to keep on searching in their titles.

District Twelve never went. It was a stagnant place, with the merchants on one side and the Seam trailing the other. There was no yellow-brick road to traverse, nowhere over the rainbow.

Madge Undersee lived at the center in a bedroom with a window like a tower. Gale would always be a stranger in a strange land in her world, no matter how many times he climbed up to her window.
