    Summary

    This picks up the Persuasion narrative from "Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I" at the point when Frederick returns to his hometown of Detroit, having left the Air Force to move in with his sister Sophia because she needs him. Of course, he will run into Anne Elliot in their old hometown, and this story tells of their interactions, alternating between Frederick's and Anne's POVs. Meanwhile, both of them also have to navigate the territory of being thirty-something Gen X-ers (this is set in the 2010's) who have mounting adult responsibilities - work, looking after their respective siblings' kids - even though they still want to feel young. The songs also keep coming - in addition to being devoted to "Learning To Fly", this story features a diverse soundtrack of '80s, '90's and '00s tunes.
