You have salt. Because it burns.
Silver.
And...
Milk under the window.
Rowan branches
around your bed.
Even some Holy Water. Maybe
And things that protect you
from yourself. Things that
Burn you
singe arm hair
Can kill you.
And maybe
You wonder
Why.


You have salt, because it burns. Lick your finger, coat it in salt. Shove it in a cut. Float in the tub.
"I guess I am a bride of Satan," you mumble to the ceiling. Laugh. Loud, echoing through the moldy bathroom. Pull yourself up.
Brush your teeth naked. Thin. Ribs and vertabrae. Breasts like goose pimples. Way to tiny. Angular. Sharp, jutting hip bones. Blood in the tooth paste that you spit out.
You pull on a zip up that isn't yours. Maybe her's? Frayed jeans are pulled on. When was the last time you did wash?
   Lighter clicks. Back fires. Burns your eyebrows and fringe. Fuck it.
You wait all night, through two pack of cigarettes and she doesn't come.
Salt in a wound, burning at the stake. Jump off a building. Fly away.
Maybe.
OKAY. *takes a deep breathe*
The first is a poem that I wrote which inspired the second little thing.
IN THE FIRST THING:
All of the things listed in the poem are used to ward off or protect one from black magic/evil spirits.
Rowan is a tree. the wood may or may not be linked with the word "Rune" and it is theorized that germanic tribes carved their runes on Rowan wood/bark.

IN THE SECOND ONE:
GENDERBENDED GUESS WHO
during witch trials, accused women were thrown in water. If they floated, it meant they were made out of wood, therefore, witches. If they sank... then, welp, THEY WERE NOT LOL. They were also pushed off roofs and cliffs. If they survived, they were witches (aka, brides of satan)

this could be read as either fanfiction or original. READ IT HOWEVER YOU LIKE

Them silly puritans. I am ashamed to have them as ancestors...
But yes, the gentlemen from Monty
pythons were actually history majors, so a lot of their stuff (minus the humor) is accurate

I can tell you weren't going for fem!Worth in this, which gives the second drabble and interesting feel, but it follows the first which just kind of screams Hanna all up and down the place so I could see how people would get a bit mixed up.

None of that matters, however, because as usual your writing is amazing. You omit so much from a scene and yet everything and than some is still there. Gah. Just. I'm so glad you post so often. <3

This could stand alone without the Hanna fandom. Really, it is very lovely...and kind of haunting if you take it away from the context of HiNaBN.

Well written Ms. Ducky
