Well… today is my day and even though it is bloody early I want to post these before sleep and work make it very late on the 13th for everyone to read. I am starting with a simple drabble and have four other short fic’s this time.
First I would like to thank enigmatic_blue for hosting this community, this great resource for those of us never willing to give up on this pair of star crossed lovers. Also thanks to the amazingly creative alwaysjbj for the lovely artwork this season. I can’t wait to read the stories already posted (I always wait till my date is done) and enjoy the art and games as well. Thank you all.
Title: Passo Doble (A drabble set at end of “Fool For Love”)
