We write and belong to our own stories:
but strong relationships,
just like good narratives,
are ones where we’re deliberate in the story-telling–
communicating to our partner what we need
so we can produce a single, cohesive work.

If we write alone, we live alone,
lone characters acting cross-purposes.

Yet, if we write together, we are together:
and my Beren will be to your Lúthien–
as hero to heroine–
and we’ll have a chance at defeating dragons.
