Catherine Leigh Dollanganger peered at the window to the world outside. The attic of Foxworth Hall felt different and strange, bigger and brighter and airier than she thought she remembered. Maybe the hunger was making her hallucinate? But she must still be in the attic. That was her whole life now, the attic and Christopher and the twins...

Not that she knew where they were right now. She was all alone in this attic; no one had answered her calls or knocks on the inside doors. Were they being punished by Grandmother? Was she being punished by Grandmother? Cathy didn't know anymore. What she did know was that there was a whole wide world outside that window and she was going to steal as many glances out of it as she could to remind herself that there was still a world filled with ballerinas and movie stars and children with loving, living parents who didn't lock them all away.

[Kathy is now Cathy from Flowers in the Attic, that old gem. More trigger warnings here, for child abuse, neglect, and poooossibly incest if I figure out where I'm taking Cathy from. ALL OF MY AUs ARE SUPER HAPPY AND FUNCTIONAL THIS YEAR!]

Once upon this morning dreary,
While Cathy pondered, scared and weary,
There came a rapping, a little tapping,
Tapping on a bedroom door.
'Twas a raven with no thumbs,
Stuck inside, nothing more.

[I am super going to regret establishing this as a poetic parody, aren't I.]

And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Revealed there in the room beyond the newly opened door
Masked the sudden sound of flapping, anxious feathered wings a-flapping,
Out of darkness past the baffled girl outside the bedroom door
The Raven flew above the floor.
