A/N: All righty. Updates on this are going to be kinda sporadic—seeing as I’ll be at work until around 5. So we’re starting at midnight, and I plan to update in the morning before I leave.
The story is finished—the entire thing will be posted before the day is over.
My endless, boundless thanks to megan_peta, zoonut, dusty273, and uisge_beatha for your revisions, your suggestions, and your encouragement. I’m the luckiest writer in the world, having you all there for me.
Thank you to vampkiss for the gorgeous banner and icons.
Lastly, I’m dedicating this fic to jamalov29—defender of the ‘ship, and one of the sweetest, most genuine people I’ve ever known. You’re invaluable, sweetie, and I’m a better person for knowing you. *hugs*
