The title comes from Ecclesiastes, which most people know from the phrase, "A time for everything, and a season for everything under heaven." Really, this story is based on the entire book, which is probably my favorite in the Bible. It talks about making the most of what one has now, and while some find it depressing, I love it. If you've got the time, I'd really recommend you read the whole thing.

A/N: If you pay really close attention to things like timing, and time of the year, you'll probably notice that I've taken liberties with canon for my own nefarious purposes. Oh well. I'm evil like that.
