Author's Note: I would like to thank Aster, my hard working beta, who had to carry me through most of this because I was a wreck trying to figure out just what I wanted to say. Without her, there would be no story. And to da_angel729 - thank you for picking my story and creating absolutely beautiful graphics to go with it!
