Author's Notes: With all the wonderful writers and artists taking part in Big Bang I almost didn't sign up. Thanks to my great cheerleader and beta Sheila this is a better story. Thanks Aerianya for the great art work. She put the whole story into one great piece of work on the cover. She didn't just make one she made three and the decision to choose one wasn't easy.
A big thanks to Patt with out whom this wouldn't have been posted. She came to my rescue when I panicked.
Art Link: Aerianya doesn't have a page set up, so you will find the art at the beginning and the end of the story. She also did the icon.
