I read this while I was so tired last night and I was in tears. It blew me away. I can so easily see this happening, it's such a natural progression for these characters that, imo, makes a lot more sense than what canon gave us. As much as I love them, we really needed something like this, before they were okay again. I know they had their talk, in canon, but it was never as visceral as this is - and it's a big talk, big topics, it needed this. I'm just a little awe-struck at how concisely you captured this moment, it's so gorgeous and awful, I loved it.
