  • Inspired heavily by the London Grammar song Sights.
  • This is a very personal story and a lot of people helped me out with it along the way. My very great thanks go to angearia for looking over an early version, torrilin for answering my questions about huskies, and yavannie82 and bewildered for excellent and comprehensive betaing, through which they have made this fic so tight it could float. Bottomless appreciation also to kylathelurker for a superlative alpha-read, cultural input and seemingly unending support and enthusiasm. They all helped me make this as good and as accurate as possible – any remaining mistakes are my own.
  • Further thanks to my lovely, generous and incredibly talented artists kylathelurker, wolveswithhats and bewildered, who have produced some truly stunning illustrations for this story. If you enjoy their work along with mine, I hope you will remember to let them know :)
  • Constructive criticism is always welcome, and in fact encouraged. Enjoy.
