Story Notes:

This was supposed to originally be written for the summer fan fiction challenge, but RL interfered in a major way, and I could not complete it in time. This story is NOT a WIP. I will be posting a chapter every few days or so until it is done. It's a little bit of angst, but mainly lighter fluff.;)  Many thanks to my beta, Gloria.  You're the best, my friend!

Hope you enjoy it!
