Author’s Notes: This is the fic I should have posted last year, and because of that I no longer have the name of the beta I used. So I apologise for that and I hope it's ok to post without listing them. I did try to find someone else to re-beta it but alas, I ran out of time. Any remaining mistakes are my own from re-writes and editing. Also a big thank you to my artist, patriciatepes for bringing my story to life with their artwork.
