I think that quote about life and death being “one thread” would make a great concept for a fanfic. The “different sides” could be Aisha and Nex coming from different backgrounds. We’d get to see how Nex grew up. (I have some ideas for his backstory.)
I would have to write this fanfic. (Well, it doesn’t have to be me, but no one else would do it.) I will keep working on the idea.
