Viola still wasn't sure what was happening in their brain. Everything was buzzing but everything was quiet, and they couldn't pick a single thought out of the throng. It was chaos, barely-contained chaos, and they didn't know what to do with it. Albus Potter hadn't been lying when he said that there was intelligence claiming that Maria was alive. Maria was in St. Mungo's, and she was alive, and that meant... what did that mean? They still weren't romantic partners, but somehow, despite that reality, Viola felt like they were less alone. There was still someone in the world who knew what the hell was going on in their head, and mostly seemed to like them despite it. Even if the breakup had changed most things, it hadn't changed that Viola wanted to be there for Maria. Bullying their way out of their hospital room so that they could go see Maria was a feat in and of itself, but now, standing outside Maria's room, Viola realized that wasn't enough. They still needed to face their ex-girlfriend, and they weren't sure what sort of emotions that would bring up... or if, Merlin forbid, they would still be numb. Viola didn't have long to quibble over the small things, though - their nurses had given them a time limit, and they wanted to spend as much of their time with Maria as possible. They swung the door open and stepped through with a confidence they didn't actually possess, striding over to Maria's bedside. Viola still didn't attempt to talk - they weren't sure they were ready for that - but they stood there, by Maria, trying to figure out what they were supposed to do now.
