Feedback is a wonderful thing and makes me work almost as fast as new Tori Amos music.:)

A special thanks to my Fabulous Beta Squad, who made the daunting commitment to stick with me throughout this monster and pretend to be interested for as long as it took--SheaClaire (my pet ego booster and surrogate sister), MaybeAmanda (my no-nonsense editor and master of dry wit), Mim (proof that oceans need not divide), Carol (loyal reader who got sucked into helping), Theodora (my grammar checker and oh, yeah, my Mom:)), and my husband Peter (plot glitch catcher extraordinaire...i.e. "What the hell were you thinking when you wrote THAT?";)). For extensive and abundantly due thanks visit the Thank Yous page.


Note to Readers: Chapter 6 notoriously upsets some of the hard core M/S Shippers among my readers.:) First off, let me remind you all that the keywords "Scully/Other" have been in the headers all along. Also, I might add, has the keyword "MSR". Do not forget this.:) That said, for the more sensitive among my readers, I offer a couple of spoilers, since I would rather have you keep reading than give up for the wrong reasons. So, if you really don't think you can stick it out without a few hints, please click here.
