Notes: Immeasurable thanks over the years to Islandsmoke for the top notch beta work and encouragement. I’ve had this fic on my hard drive for many months now, waiting for the time when it called me to complete it. We’re ready.
Thanks to Lore and everyone at Snupin Santa over the years for making this such a wonderful exchange. I really think we left it on a high note, don’t you?
