Laying on the grass, in the new world that Mami was reborn in, Mami held Homura's hand.

It was a moment of relief that Mami barely felt happening. In those days that she pondered about her duty after Kyouko's passing, and realizing all she was left with was Homura in a world that condemned them to endless fighting, there also came a moment in which the fights turned into a crawl as they found the source of the wraiths.

And then, as if waking up from a nightmare, Mami woke up on a field of grass caressed by soft mountain winds, holding Homura's hand, with a picnic kit and tea already served for the two of them nearby, looking up at an unfamiliar blue sky.

There was a long moment in which Mami realized there were threats in the distance that made her soul gem glow, evidence that the fight would not be over just yet. Then, she turned her head to Homura, not letting go of her hand, silently asking her if this was real.

Pushing all thoughts of Madoka to the back of her mind, Homura climbed back up to her feet, the mountain breeze idly playing through her long hair. She could only hope that she looked calmer than she felt.

She'd haunted Mitakihara City for so long that she knew it like the back of her hand. But even without taking into account her timeline resets- she didn't care to think about how much older her mind was compared to her body, after reliving the same month and a half dozens of times- most of her life was spent living in Japan's crowded cities, with only a few isolated pockets of natural greenery connected by forested paths.

Our world. Hearing Mami say that all but confirmed Homura's own uneasy suspicions.

"Wherever we are, there won't be witches." Her tone was little sharper than intended. If witches still existed anywhere in the universe, then Madoka's self-sacrificial wish was unfulfilled, and it would all have been for naught- Homura took a breath to calm herself before continuing. "No matter how similar they may seem."

She waited for Mami to finish packing up, only slightly impatient, before joining her side as they began walking. Moving around like this while transformed, and on guard against any potential enemies, felt strange; back in Mitakihara, their wraith hunts were normally in the evening or night.

Homura glanced over. "We should find somewhere with cover, or a better vantage point." To scope out whatever threats were lurking in the distance, and to determine what sort of town or city they were walking toward. For someone as meticulous as Homura, it grated at her that they simply didn't have enough information.

Straw roofs, stone walls, warning bells. Not only were they in a different world, but in a different time period entirely. And now the screams. They'd barely had time to get their bearings, and the situation had already changed. Not for the first time, the former time traveler wished she could still slow the world to a standstill.

Homura shook her head, not even turning at the telltale sound of muskets being summoned. "It would be safer to stay together," she murmured, her voice giving no indication to whatever she might be feeling. "Right where the enemy is headed."

The black-haired girl didn't quite smile at the mention of Madoka, but the corners of her lips just barely quirked up. "I'll cover you from the bell tower." Homura's fingers twitched up toward the side of her head- a nervous tic, making sure that well cared-for red ribbon was still there- before she summoned her bow.

Instead, she felt the touch of cold gunmetal against her fingers, a reassuringly familiar weight clamping onto her left arm. Slowing to a standstill, Homura stared at her hourglass shield, her face pale as if she'd seen a ghost.
