1. Chapter 1 by ZephyrHawk [Reviews - 36] (3395 words)
This story started off as a horribly bitter companion piece to Journey’s End. But as often occurs with the stories I write, it got away from me a little bit, and by the time I was halfway finished, I realized it wasn’t quite as bitter anymore. And neither was I.
Copyright Notice: If I actually owned anything worthwhile do you seriously think I’d be wasting my time writing fanfiction? As a side note, any superficial similarities you may find in this story to the excellent fan video “Nobody Sees” by seduff are not at all coincidental and entirely a result of the fact that I cannot get the damn thing out of my head.
Musical Accompaniment: “Second Best” and “Home”- both by Barenaked Ladies, “When I See You Smile”- Bad English.

If you have issues with two consenting, heterosexual adults engaging in a perfectly natural, physical expression of their mutual affection...how do you ever manage to read fanfiction? Consider yourself warned.

At this, the unofficial halfway point in the story, I thought I'd take the time to thank those who have stuck with it thus far. If you're interested in soldiering on, I can promise biweekly updates with a little more smut, a bucketful of angst, one huge cliche, and a resolution to start off the new year. Hope you enjoy it.

Happy New Year, everyone! I wanted to take this time to thank all of you who have stuck with me through the length and breadth of this story. Looking back over the past year, I think that the time I enjoyed myself the most, the time I felt most alive, was when I was writing this tale. I hope that I was able to pass on some small portion of that to you, dear readers. Best of luck in the year to come, and here’s wishing that your future brings all that you hope for.
