Another installment in this AU from almost a year ago. (I might possibly have too many AUs.)
Thorn: So, Ragnild . . . you know the difference between being “married” and “together”? We’re married for political reasons, but we’re not a couple in other ways. And it’s okay if we go out with other people.
Ragnild: Mmhmm, I get it. My Mamma and Papa had a setup like that.
. . . although for a long time Pappa didn’t know it.
Well, you let me know if you start dating anyone. And they have to be the same age as you.
Ragnild: Like, exactly the same age?
Thorn: Well . . .
Because the only person exactly my age is my twin sister Iona.
Thorn: Okay, rules lawyer. You can only date someone if your age is at least half their age plus seven — and vice versa.
Ragnild: Great. If I wanna date someone, I gotta do fractions first.
