    Summary

    Beatrice finds herself musing not over duty and sacrifice and God, but the truth of angels, if they can be created rather than summoned. If they can take the form of women with overeager mouths and careless limbs and eyes with a depth that beckons - a crooked finger, a spiral staircase - if they can be both human and not, both beautiful and terrifying.

    Ava asks, What do you want, Beatrice?

    (Tell me and I’ll give it to you. Tell me and I’ll build you a home there. Tell me and I’ll rearrange the universe to make it all fit, angels and demons be damned. Tell me it’s me. Me. Me.)

    Summary

    “Look,” Beatrice snapped, the agitation finally breaking through her calm exterior. “I’m not a nun anymore, and I’m not your mentor anymore - not that you ever listened to me when I was - but for what it’s worth, Ava, the voice in your head that tells you to kill yourself? That’s not God. God wants you to live. You got charmed by some blonde, again. Only this bitch somehow managed to convince both you and Michael that the only way to defeat Adriel was to go rogue and turn yourselves into a divinium suicide bomb that didn’t even work. It Didn’t Work, Ava! Reya lied to you. She played you. Michael didn’t die a hero; he died for nothing. Do you know what did work? Our plan! Infiltrate the cathedral! Destroy the cross! Find the arc! It worked! We were going to defeat him our way, and we would’ve done it, if you’d just trusted your team, for once!”

    “I know, but… I was protecting you!” Ava huffed, frustrated, and more than a little indignant, and dropped her face into her hands. 

    “Yeah, well, it’s kind of hard to protect anyone when you’re dead.”

    -

    Ava comes back. She's got some 'splainin to do.

    Summary

    Beatrice gathers her pajamas up and heads into the bathroom, but she hesitates just inside the doorframe. After a silent consideration, she turns to look Ava dead in the eye, something unreadable in her gaze.

    Worried, Ava says, “Yes?”

    For a moment, Beatrice doesn’t say anything, just watches Ava with eyes that seem almost sunken into her skull. Then she straightens up, swallows, and delivers her message.

    “Don’t go anywhere.”

    ---

    The night after Ava falls thirteen stories and cracks her skull open on the pavement, Beatrice is practically Ava’s second shadow.

    Summary

    They had already seen the Halo’s power. Its gifts and its limits. But it’s only when Ava’s guttural scream echoes around the open area they find themselves fighting wraith demons in —when they feel, rather than hear, how it tears itself from her throat, some sound almost primal to its core— that they stand to witness the true power of the Halo.

    or, Ava should have glowing golden eyes when unlocking 100% of the halo.
