Further proof a wee bit of encouragement goes a long way, and that Elbeeinthewild is awesome!
This is a lovely story set two years after the events in the episode, The Exception to the Rule. If you are unfamiliar with the episode, the story may not make as much sense. It's a great episode, so go watch, if you haven't! Even better, this is a nifty story based on it, so double WIN! Grab some kleenex and enjoy!
