Story Notes: While I was travelling a few weeks ago I started writing these AU drabbles in the back of my notebook and, before I knew it, I had a whole series on my hands. Now, I'm editing them and will be posting a new chapter every day, around the same time (7:30pm my time, because that's when I get home from work, which happens to be 7:30am Eastern Time - so perfect light breakfast reading!)
