Creator's Notes: I've had so many ideas for my prompt that I could hardly decide which one to go with - it was basically a close race between two and in the end, I went with the third; this piece was heavily inspired by Franz Schubert's Der Tod und das Mädchen, and therefore also the poem by Matthias Claudius. Thank you so, so much to sapphoatsunset for hosting hprare_cliche and to flipflop_diva for the amazing beta and encouraging job! You guys rock my world. ♥
