FIC: both her terror and her gentleness, by templemarker [The Magicians]

both her terror and her gentleness by [personal profile] templemarker

Rating: Mature
Length: 1700 words
Content notes: No warnings apply.
Author notes: Takes place during 4x12 "The Secret Sea", during the scene where Alice, Penny, Quentin, and Plover are in the Drowned Garden. I wanted to dig into Alice's perspective on, well, everything in the episode. For [community profile] fan_flashworks challenge #260 - Cave, and my [community profile] fan_flashworks bingo card square "step".

Summary: On her better days, Alice can believe that she once understood the world, enough to live in it like a person, a person with a soul. The person she was before she was a Niffin, before she cursed her friends to obscurity and herself to the Library's imperfect incarceration.
