TITLE: Did You Know?
RATING: PG-13. Language. Angst. References (non-explicit) to rape, slavery, torture, and other bad things. If you get disturbed easily, you probably shouldn't be reading this. Actually, you probably shouldn't be reading angst, period.
DISCLAIMER: They're not mine. I'm sorry. If they were mine, Tyr would not have had his character assassinated, Telemachus Rhade would have a spine, Gaheris Rhade would be making regular flashbacks, Dylan would be dead, Trance would have more airtime, Beka would be BEKA(!!), Rommie would be intact, Doyle would certainly not flirt with Dylan, and Harper would still have his earring. And lots and lots of airtime and angst. And a girlfriend (me). Clearly, that hasn't happened. Therefore, I have no legal right to them. Also, the opening and closing quotes are taken from the song "Nobody's Girl" by Reckless Kelly. I don't own that, either. Please don't sue, I'm consistently broke.
ARCHIVE: Just ask, I'd love to give permission.
SUMMARY: Maybe Beka doesn't know Harper as well as she thinks. S5. Harper POV with a strong Beka centrism.
SPOILERS: S5. Anything up through "What Will Be Was Not" is fair game, although I don't think I actually refer to much by way of spoilers. I know there are "Be All My Sins Remembered" references. But if you have even a passing familiarity with S5, you should be safe.
PAIRINGS: One-sided Beka/Harper. I have never written this before. Please see author's notes.
Notes: This story leans very heavily on my personal canon for the show. My personal canon does not necessarily follow the show's canon, although it doesn't necessarily contradict the show's canon, either. Sometimes it does. "So Burn The Untamed Lands" contradicted my personal canon, much to my irritation. Anyway, if there's a part of my personal canon that you think makes no sense in the show's context, let me know. Maybe I'll be able to change my personal canon.
Heather, who is mentioned within, was the focus of my story "My Kind Of Rain". You don't need to have read that to understand this, I don't think.
