April, how you love to mock, promising
Eternal spring and sunlight, delivering
Wind and rain and starless nights, sending
Cherry blossoms across the world,
Through thawing street and melting desert
To lie beneath my feet.

The glittering of stars caught in the rain;
Heaven in a wet, black coat.

For Maria
merci omdat ik u heb gekend

The sun slipped in twin sheets
Of depthless sea and endless sky,
The last breath of a lover’s goodbye,
When I first heard you sigh
My name; your lilting voice,
Dulcet, dolce, dull throbs in my chest
To your lilting voice,
Calling to me, holding me, keeping me
In velvet folds of silk and honey, cresting
In waves of rolling cadence:
Goedenavond, let’s skip the tea,
And be off to bed, just you and me,
Cresting and rolling, bonne nuit.

And I, slipped in twin sheets with
One set of limbs,
Cried to your voice,
Your lilting, tilting voice with
No lips, no arms, no legs to bare,
No supple breasts or soft damp hair.

The moon hid in thin veils
Of drifting clouds and floating rain,
The silent nights, never the same,
When I gave in and gave you
Your name.

The only thing is to make something
Beautiful with these hands.
Soft, unblemished hands,
Elegant nails, indigo edges;
Hands that dance on ivory,
Reinvent history,
Breathing oceans and kingdoms and
Dragons whistling in harmony.
Can you hear them too,
Their voices wreathed in moonlight?
Hands that mould the world,
A potter with yesterday’s clay, playing
The universe with lingering fingers.

But these are real hands, and
Real hands must do real things, so
I pull you closer because
Your hands are also real—
(But this feels so surreal!)—
And these hands fill the blank
Spaces on a calendar;
And then, the half-eaten breakfasts and
Half-breakfasts eaten, and the real
Punctuates blue lines set in plastic, the real
Has slipped inside, gripping, unrelenting,
Until I grip and relent and release
And my hands are returned to me.

But they are changed, mine but not mine—
Though not yours, never yours, those blissful evenings
With no end and beginning, waxed and waned—
They touch soft, unblemished flesh,
Flesh that clutches and steals from breasts;
They touch but can’t hold,
Till thick fingers (no longer tinted, or mauve, or pink,
Or even light brown) curl around
The tiny throat—goodbye, tiny, greedy throat;
Goodbye, beady, unseeing eyes—
And a dissonant symphony calls,
Swells, turns, falls; and then
As I stand, the final silence; the most
Beautiful thing made by these hands.

I'm filled with so much gratitude for countless amazing people, without whom this project would be a sludge-pile of nonsensical, half-formed ideas. In particular, I'd like to thank:

> 666_blessings for his super typo-zapping skills, his invaluable help with the massive tense change, and for always putting up with my fandom ramblings.
> calcitrix for not only claiming this story, but for creating three breathtaking pieces of artwork. I am so utterly stoked by how you have brought my story to life.
> goose197 for being an amazing cheerleader, whose constant emails and support really kept me on track. :D
> openended for going above and beyond her fanmixer duties and becoming a beta, capslock!panic punching bag, fellow admirer of semicolons, and friend--you are seriously amazing!
> All the supportive and highly tolerant folk who follow my Twitter and were spammed by my flailing during the epic crazy week of editing culminating in that all-nighter (one of whom has kindly edited this post to put in this note)--you all know who you are!

And of course, my thanks to all the wonderful Sam/Jack shippers out there--this is for you. ♥

Part One: Chapter 1 / Chapter 2
Part Two: Chapter 3 / Chapter 4 / Chapter 5
