A/N: This rather short one-shot came to me out of nowhere this morning; i believe that it may have been inspired by a discussion with leaveout following my take yesterday on episode 4.09. And for an amazing drive-by beta, heartfelt thanks to the wonderful, invaluable blackmare_9 !
P.S. Yeah--you might've read this yesterday. But then, because I continued to revise it several times after posting--and because I had a crisis of confidence based on a very weird combination of factors all coming together at the same time, I locked it. And this morn, all those factors have been put into perspective, I've [well, some bitter white tablets have--finally] gotten a handle on an unusually bad spate of pain, and I'm finished sitting out in the garden, munching on the worms blackmare_9 so generously offered to fry. So I ask your indulgence with that little blip on my radar. Here's the story, again, with a zillion minor [and likely unnecessary] revisions. I apologize.
