Note: Set during Season 8 in the week or two before 8x19 Taxi Driver, and there are allusions to the events of Season 9. The internet is my source for the medical knowledge presented in this story, so any blatantly wrong information is entirely my fault for ever believing anything the internet says ever.
Acknowledgements: I have to give my heartfelt thanks to harmony_bites for her cheerleading and excellent beta services. She has read and reread pieces of this story more times than I care to count over the last 16 months, and she’s probably happier to see it posted than I am. I also need to thank my beta candygramme for agreeing to tackle this whole monstrous thing only a couple of weeks before my posting date. I am so appreciative that she made time to help out some poor soul crying out for help on the internet.
Any and all mistakes within are mine, not theirs.
And last but not least, I want to thank jkivela for the amazing artwork he did for this story. It’s the first time I’ve ever had any of my fic illustrated, and I’m am beyond thrilled at what a great job he did.
See the end for further notes.
