All of you are totally awesome, and I love you to bits.
And a special note: kelleigh, thank you for putting up with me. <3 This girl spent months listening to me whine, but she never gave up on the idea that this fic could be worthwhile to read.
Speaking of listening to me whine, I need to shout-out to my sister for listening even though it's incest slash-fic and that's not her thing at all, but she's always supportive of me in everything I do. I love you.
BTW, rsc88tx, I am sorry if I didn't incorporate your comments well enough. I really appreciated the time you took to think things over for me, and I tried, but if there's anything I missed, flubbed, it's totally my fault. <3
And osmalic, you deserve so much more appreciation and thanks than I can give you. You went totally above and beyond the call of duty to do the art for my fic AND step up to help beta. Thanks so much. <3
Also, selu for the trauma/medical help. <3 (Any remaining errors are my own.)
I guess I should thank shades_of_hades, too, for listening to me whine for months about this... >:D
And, of course, to wendy and thehighwaywoman for organising this, keeping it awesome, and doing such a fantastic job at keeping it all on track. You guys rock.
Further Author's Notes: Part of the story is influenced/inspired by the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (the hunt towards the end). Also, I got some book suggestions from Kate, Stef, Jen, and wutendeskind. The book I eventually chose to reference was originally suggested by Jen, though I think Stef might have mentioned it too?
The movie referenced in Book One is Innocent Lies.
Thanks for reading, everyone!
