Snow


It’s snowing outside. She doesn’t see Barney at first for all the falling snow, but then something takes shape – Barney in a light grey suit, wings spread to their full width and his hair shimmering with snowflakes.

When he comes closer, she realizes he’s wearing goggles. They look incredibly silly, but he wears them as though they’re the latest fashion.

He lands and she’s pretty sure it’s what an angel would look like, if angels wore suits and smirks.

He points to the goggles. “Prada.”

She snorts. “Dr. Horrible-lookalike.”

He looks surprised that she knows the reference.

They go inside.

Future


Lily sees herself pregnant, belly round and heavy, long before she gets pregnant. Still, when it happens, it’s not so much the vision that tells her they’re having a baby. She feels the shift – she feels her body change and prepare, everything perfectly natural.

She cooks him a really nice dinner and they have candles lit and everything; she wants it to be special. But she doesn’t need to tell him. He reads her so well; he knows without words. They’re quiet, somehow both sensing the change.

Finally, he says a single word. “Really?”

“Really.”

They smile.

He wraps his arms around her from behind, both large hands on her still flat stomach. She knows he already loves their unborn child just as much as she does, even though he’s only known about its existence for a minute. She can’t wait to see their child in his arms, she wants to see the love as he looks at the baby.

She often sees the future, but this time it’s not a vision but her dreams coming true. She sees them with their child and she sees a family of love and happiness.

She can’t wait for the future to happen.

Dogma


Barney came back, face scrunched up with horror.

“What happened?” asked Lily. “You look like you’re going to be sick.”

“I think I am,” Barney said. “She—she said—”

Robin cocked her head slightly to the side. “What did she say?”

Barney dropped down dramatically onto his chair. “She asked me if I’m like Alan Rickman in Dogma! She thought I had no equipment!”

The others burst out laughing.

“Oh, Barney,” Lily said between fits of giggles. “Poor baby.”

“It’s not funny!” Barney said. “It’s a tragedy! I’m the Barnacle, not a eunuch.”

The others just continued to laugh.

Author's notes: Part of The Changed verse.

Torn apart


The scales appear first and she tries to scrub them off. She knows what they mean, has read enough about it in the papers and seen the pictures. She’s not stupid. But still, she tries to scrub them off, tries to stall for more time even though she knows it’s impossible.

Chase doesn’t realize at first. Allison uses clothes that cover up her body and considering how he’s been pulling away, it really isn’t hard to avoid having sex with him. They barely seem to exist in each other’s lives anymore.

But the bones in her legs start to weaken. She takes to sitting a lot, walking only when necessary. One morning, she can’t walk at all, when the bones in her legs seem to have evaporated. Suddenly, she can’t keep the secret anymore.

She cries when she tells him.

“God,” he breathes when he sees the green-tinted scales covering her legs. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

She doesn’t know. Did she think that he wouldn’t care? She can’t find the words to explain, but one look in his eyes and she sees that he understands anyway. He would have done the same thing.

They put their differences aside – his secrets, her suspicions, their fears – for a few hours and he holds her in his arms. They lie on their soft bed beneath the covers, simply holding each other. All the while, she can feel the Change coursing through her body, turning her legs into a fish tail instead. In a week, maybe two, the Change will be complete and she’ll have to go live in the ocean.

They have been drifting apart and they both see the end even though they both pretend they don’t. They’re being torn apart, Change or no Change.

Perhaps this is for the best.
