And I hear you calling in the dead of night

You lean towards despair
Any given opportunity you’re there
But what is there to gain?
When you’re always falling off the fence that way.

So this was request by the lovely ofhouseadama. (she has some amazing fanfiction for these two so go read it). I wasn’t sure I’d actually be able to pull this off but I’m glad I attempted it. I love working with this show and while it was hard I feel like this is somewhat successful? We’ll call it that.
