This is the fandom_stocking story that I wrote for skieswideopen this year. She wrote that she likes “outsider POVs,” “slice of life” and “bittersweet endings” (and, of course, Forever Knight). I'm pretty satisfied with it. I think it's different, and that it achieves an appropriate structure.
My thanks to celli for her supportive beta-reading and perceptive suggestion!
