My apologies to my Livejournal friends. I've tried to cross-post everything to all three sites I use, but this story would require four posts to fit on LJ with the chapter-break at the right place. I'm instead posting just at AO3 and DW, but this post will remain available for commenting for those who prefer LJ.
