Author's Chapter Notes:
Episode Tag for Point of View. Believe it or not, this wee tale goes waaaay back to early 2000, first written shortly after I crossed over the great Slash Divide for a slash zine that never happened. It's one of the very first slash stories I wrote. I knocked out the original version, sent it out and for the next year and a half forgot about it. When Chance was looking for submissions for her zine 'The Other Side' I remembered it again, dug it out, dusted it off, was promptly horrified, and did a fair amount of necessary rewriting before submitting it. Chance was gracious enough to accept it, it debuted in her zine, and in this incarnation the story won a Sizzler Award. When the zine timed out a year later I included the story in the first Six Pack and then the year after that, it was featured in the Reprise. I was tidying up my desk this morning, came across some pages of the Reprise I'd printed out and realised it's been a year since the zine was originally published. Now, I never intended to release any of the stories in the Reprise to the net, but the more I looked at this puppy I said to myself, oh, why the hell not. I figure it's more than done its time in zine limbo, why not let it fly, be free. And yeah, I really like it, and I hope it'll find a few more people who maybe haven't seen it yet and will appreciate it. I hope you enjoy.
