A/N: Written for this prompt from icarus_chained on comment_fic   Author's choice, author's choice, a friend in dark times. The theme today was "Double Drabbles (200 words)

If he was Phillip Marlowe, he’d be certain who wanted to kill him by now. His godmother had taught him that faeries were anything but straight forward.Their motives have motives, and the moment you think you had them figured out…

Well, then they tried to seduce you while the entire Winter Court looked on (probably wagering on how long it would take you to die). He hates faeries.

He feels like he will never be warm again. He avoids Mol—the Winter Lady, and his godmother as best he can while here on the island, but Mab always drags him back to court (the pain of resisting is almost worth it).

Something moves raggedly inside him, like rusted metal.

Once, he almost fancied himself a decent man, but now he isn’t sure why he bothers to cling to the Harry that was. He traces the runes on his new staff, feels Demonreach hum beneath his feet. Warden. This is what he’s good for now.

God he misses Mouse and—No.

The staff warms beneath his hand. New script appears under his fingers.

I will always find you Harry.

He leans his head against his staff, choking.

“Point taken, Ivy.”

One of these days I'll have to watch Dresden Files. Lovely and well-written.

Oh start with the books, honestly (though the one-season TV series is well done on its own, it is rather different). Mind you, once you read the first book you will be addicted. *maniacal laughter*

Oh, and err...thanks. Just finished a mix CD here and then I should probably attempt sleep (and listen to more Welcome to Night Vale).
