Summary: When things fall apart, you just have to keep going. This is a post-season-four AU that was 95% written during the season four hiatus; then of course season five came along and jossed it thoroughly.

So I finally finished and posted this, which I wrote most of back in 2013. It's kind of dark and kind of bitter, and I will freely admit that at least some of the writing process for this fic was basically therapy in fic form, an outlet for my mixed feelings about season four. I still feel somewhat ambivalent about posting it, but I didn't want to put in all that work and then stick it in a drawer. You should know going in that it doesn't end happily for all of the characters; however, it's not a deathfic or a total miseryfest. Feel free to ask me questions if there's something specific you need to know before reading.

Hi! I added you because I asked my flist for recommendations of active/fannish journals and tamsinwillougby reccomended you, hope that's cool. :)
Sure, it's fine! :D I hope you'll have fun around here! And it's always nice to see people still active on LJ (I really don't think it's as dead as people claim, though it's definitely contracted from its heyday).
