Author's notes: I saw this prompt and just knew that it was one of the prompts that I wanted to try to write. Props to rickey_a for having come up it - it was very interesting to ponder on it and creating a story out of it. But to be perfectly honest, the writing didn’t happen smoothly… my own personal demons showed up somewhere along the way and sometimes they get carried over to the writing, which I then have to combat so the story doesn’t go astray. I hope the result is not disappointing. Lastly, thank you very much to the moderators of HD Inspired for being so helpful and understanding. This is a great community and I’m proud to be a part of it.
Beta(s): blamebrampton (thanks for beta-reading, Brit-picking and supplying me with infinite wisdom; it’s been a great learning experience working on this fic with her) and brighterlater (thanks for beta-reading, spell-checking and just being there for me). Much love to both of them!
