Author’s Note: This chapter got quite long and also remains un-betaed, but I really wanted to get it finished and up in time for the free-for-all day for once! This chapter marks the halfway point of the story but also serves as the end of part one if this were a two part television episode, hence the evil evil cliffhanger :D For any new readers the first three chapters can be found here. Thank you for all of the comments on this story so far and well done to everybody for another awesome round of Spuffiness ♥
