Major character deathWord Count:
Set post season 5, so anything is up for grabs, but major spoilers for season 3, "Epiphany."Summary:
"Oh the blood and the treasure, and then losing it all. The time that we wasted, and the place where we fall. Will we wake in the morning and know what it was for, up in our bedroom, after the war?"—The Beginning After the End
And then, seven years later, I repost my final Mcshep Match story! This one looks a little different than the one that originally ran in the contest (which, due to the time constraints, was not as finished as I wanted it to be, and woefully under-edited.) There are a couple new scenes, and others have been modified or taken out entirely. Hopefully this version is a much cleaner read than the original.
Huge, enormous thank yous to my betas, windysame
(whose lightning fast grammar checks are every writer's dream) and enviropony
(who made my verbs work out their disagreements and my infinitive renew their vows.) They made this story into something actual people could actually read.
Now, on with the story!Part OnePart TwoPart Three
