Story Notes: This fic is in response to a challenge by Kittenshift17. It was listed under the title: Shattered, but she gave her permission to call it anything else, so I did.
This summary is the beginning of her challenge - the complete parameters will be listed at the end of the story.
The wonderful banner was gifted to me by Twinkles, who is also part of a beta triad, along with miccrindle23 and Stalwartsandall. Since I always end up fiddling after all their hard work, any mistakes you spot are mine and mine alone.

As usual, any dialogue you recognize belongs to those who created it. Only the story belongs to me, thanks to Kittenshift17's challenge.

And so we come to the end of my little tale. Thanks must be given to my wonderful triad of betas:

Twinkles (also banner maker extraordinaire), micrindle23, and Stalwartsandall.

Any boo boos you find are mine alone, thanks to my post-beta fiddle habit.
