Story Notes: The idea for this story came about in a discussion with liliaeth quite a few years ago. She and I wrote about half of this story together, until other projects led her on a separate path. The rest of the story is mine, alone.
 
Please note that Spike will actually appear only in the final chapter, though he will be referenced often in the preceding chapters. Consider this fic more laying the groundwork for Spuffy, as opposed to blatant Spuffy content.
 
The banner is once more a creation of the uber-talented Twinkles, who, as part of my delightful triad of Betas including Stalwartsandall and micrindle23, make my work much better than it was.

Alas, we have come to the end of our journey - as with all good things, I suppose. Time to thank the bunch involved in putting this story into words.

I give massive love and credit to my triad of betas: StalwartsandallMicrindle23, and Twinkles. They helped to polish my thoughts into the story I wanted to tell.

Also, I must lovingly thanks liliaeth, for helping me come up with the story in the first place, and taking me halfway there, until life interrupted.

Onwards we go now - gotta see how it ends! Comments, as you must know by now are more than welcome.
