Story Notes: This story is weird. It just is, it's weird, it's wandery, it's metaphysical in the extreme. If you're reading and you feel lost, don't worry, that's probably how you were supposed to feel, just plunge on. This was an idea I could not get out of my head, and I know it's hard to understand or even follow, but... William wanted his say on the matter, and... he was only a soul.
Special props to Zabjade and bewildered for trying to beta this wandery little beastie. I know how hard it was to wrangle.

*Addendum 2021. Eric Clapton has come out anti-vax. My liking of this song is not in support of this stance or his other politics.
