Author's Notes: Ahhh, this story was fighting me at everything step! I was lucky to have the advice of some amazing pre-readers. Thanks to the lovely sassy_cissa, @evaristegalois, @kyluxtrashcompactor and @TheKnitterati for their cheerleading and wisdom as I tried to wrangle my ideas into something coherent. My everlasting gratitude to the amazing @Blowfish_Diaries for her fast and insightful beta work. Without their help, this fic may have never seen the light. <33 All remaining mistakes are my own.
