Summary: A reporter once asked of me, ‘Sir. If the most notable moments of your life were to be documented for the stage, how many acts would there be, and what would they be called?’ I was of a mind to ignore him, and yet an answer came to my lips—much to my surprise. “Four acts—in no certain order: Death of a Father, Death of a Servant, The Bridge, and The Arrival of the Boy." There is also this movement, a fifth and final act that I neglected to share with him. It has no title as of yet.
A/N: This fic is a result of three months of research, three weeks of deciding on the appropriate direction for voice and POV, three massive migraines, and three dollars worth of late fees at the library. My apologies to Sir Horace Jones and Sir John Wolfe-Barry, the actual architects/engineers of the Tower Bridge. I borrowed your landmark with utmost respect. Please don't haunt me for too long. Huge thank you to my support crew: saladbats, head beta and cheerleader ~ joanwilder, team mate, captain and finder of random capitalised words ~ who_la_hoop team mate and brilliant britpicker ~ and a special shout out to igtow for architectural-picking, amazing sleuth work, and for hashing out the title with me. *highfives* A million thanks to my team mates and the wonderful snarry_games mod crew. It was an honour to work with you all.
To my readers: Thank you taking a chance on a PG-13 fic. It means the world to me and my team mates. I hope you enjoy reading this humble offering as much as I loved writing it. *loves*
