A/N: Wow, this got away with me. A lot. In the second I saw this prompt, an idea began to form in my head and then, as always, everything went its very own way. Nevertheless, I'm really proud of how it turned out! Lots of thanks to Mab for the beta and to lovely Crystal and Kristine for the constant support and cheerleading!
