Note: This is technically in the same AU as In The Blood, but you don’t have to read that to read this unless you want to know why Blake has tattoos and is living in Weiss’ house. Like previous installments, neutral pronouns are used for Blake, if any are at all
(try and pry my agender Blake out of my cold dead hands). Any she/her usage is in reference to Weiss. Thanks to xekstrin for cleaning up some wording.
If you’re looking for rough, messy, emotionally complicated Monochrome smut, I probably have your ticket.
Weiss was nervous, even if this had been her idea.
The planning was weeks in the making, not only because she barely had time to sleep amidst meetings, foiled sabotage, and the ongoing threat of riots across the Dust quarries of Vale, but because the unknown had a habit of trying to kill her, if not destroy everything she stood for. Perhaps the sentiment shouldn’t have applied to an intimate endeavor, although it was difficult to convince herself of that when Blake had spent so long as a chaotic variable in the center of her life, concealing a dark past in one hand and violent revelations in the other.
