Who Joseph Aaron’s – Joe to those close to him – parents are to him aren’t who they are to the world, not at first. When he’s old enough to understand the world sees Buffy and Spike where he sees Mama and Papa, he has to learn how to love them all over again. A story of the work of love, the importance of choice, carrying legacies of life and death and power and glory on your shoulders as you go out into the world, and understanding your parents are people the same as you.
-
Title comes from the poem "The Tiger" by Nael.
