Author's Note: Part of the 2021 EF Mystery Fic-a-Thon Challenge.The plotter in me is having a major panic attack, but my muse came up with the idea after the first prompt and wouldn't let it go. Because I have no idea how this will end up playing out, the rating can change at any time. I'm going to call it R for now. I'm hoping I can get it to NC17. Fingers crossed this works out.

Whew! I'm coming in under the wire, but hey, it's finished which is HUGE for me these days. Thanks so much to the mods for this event. It's been a godsend (even if this last chapter makes me long for more time and fewer restrictions, lol).
