Wow. Wow wow wow. This is gorgeous and heartbreaking and wonderful. Oh, I've missed your fic so much... The pain everyone's in is so real and so THERE and just... wow. Kind of speechless right now - and definitely not surprised that this fic won its round. It certainly deserved it!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Jackie! Talking to you during con convinced me I should start posting again, and it will take awhile to clear the humongous backlog I have. I just have to figure out what categories some things belong in... But I'm so glad you liked this! Thank you so much. <3
