It's only half past... (1/2)  
Author: ragelikeafire
Title: It’s only half past…
Pairing: Andy/Miranda
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: The Devil Wears Prada does not belong to me. No infringement intended to Lauren Weisberger and 20th Century Fox. All characters are purely fictional.
Summary: Two drabbles/poems. A little bit of angst seen from both points of view. After several tumblers of Whisky, Miranda is projecting her thoughts of what she wants to say to Andrea. Andy is writing her thoughts in her journal as the tears roll down her face.

Beta: punky_96Thanks bb!

It’s only half past the point of no return…

Miranda’s POV.

The promises you made, they were wrapped in a ribbon of glass.

I’d wished it would never end; now I wished it had never existed.

You gave me the fantasy of how it could be; maybe I was foolish to believe it.

How was I supposed to see it coming when you had me blind? I don’t want to hate you but when all I’m filled with is a bitter aftertaste, it’s hard not to.

Didn’t you tell me that you belong to me? Didn’t you tell me that nothing could tear us apart?

Don’t you know that I loved you from the start? Sitting in my kitchen, you poured the coffee. Calling me Darling; you called me Darling.

I should have stopped you walking out the door, instead of pretending to choose.

Suddenly everything I own smells of you.

It scares me to death but right now, I know I would be happy just to hear the sound of your breathing.

Is it too late?

It’s only half past the point of oblivion…

Andy’s POV

Isn’t it funny how you think you have your whole life planned only to find out it was never in your hands?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone? Waiting on the sign, anything to prove you are not alone…

I told her that we would be together. That nothing could break us apart.

Why did she let me walk out that door? She has created a liar; she made me break my promises.

The Queen of attention to detail, how didn’t she see this coming?

Part 2

I abso-fucking-lutely love this line.

I do hope to see a third part. Maybe detailing the events that led up to this, the promises Andy failed to keep? Why did Andy walk out on Miranda? Oh and of course how it all ends. I'm thoroughly intrigued!

"Ribbon of glass" really gets to me each time as do a few other phrases. A ribbon should be of celebration a part of the party and yet here it is made of glass and suddenly dangerous.

And yet how dangerous is it? It is transparent and you can see through it. If it is a ribbon then it is around a package, even in glass you can see it coming, take care with it, avoid breaking it into shards.

Apparently the Queen of Detail did not see those details...

Andrea promised her heart and promised forever, but she didn't realize what would happen if the other person withdrew and did not give back to her... Andrea has become a liar because when she went to wrap her arms around her, Miranda disappeared. You can't hold someone that slips away.

I agree that it is beautiful, if sad... And I want at least a part 3 if not more :)

I always like to see the lovers talk it out either to reunion or at least resolution.

I'd like to see Miranda coming to terms with her own part in this and reaching out to Andrea. I can see Andrea being defensive and difficult. Miranda wouldn't let her love her and now she wants to crawl back? I could see Andrea being unwilling and I hope that Miranda would continue to pursue her.

Great writing as always, Rage!

Punky out!

Very beautiful... I'd like to say more but I can't verbalize it right now. Anyway... I love the "feeling" of it... the sadness, melancholy and the approaching loneliness. Short, but effective. Thank you. Please do continue.

Wonderfully touching - Write the Outcome, write the oooooutcooooome!

for the outcome i would think the same format with one thinking and the other writing the different POV. obviously they get back together *grin*. miranda picked up the phone to call and andy answered.
