Many thanks to my betas: leela_cat, who put up with a lot of missed deadlines and cut a lot of text which will thankfully never see the light of day, as well as ziasudra who jumped in to help with very little notice. This story was vastly improved with their efforts. Any remaining mistakes are my own. The lovely, hardworking mods will always have my greatest respect for running the best fest of the year and thank you for not killing me after missing a deadline or two. Thanks also to perverse_idyll for some fantastic ideas and discussion on angst. Disclaimer: Not mine. You know the drill.
