Author’s Notes: I have to thank echo_grace_07 for her tireless beta work. People, you have no idea how much of a mess this was before she got to it. She deserves a medal or something. Thank you so much! Also, I want to thank counteragent for being wonderful to work with as an artist and her suggestions after reading my story much improved it as well. Thanks! You’re both wonderful people and it’s been an honor to work with you.
Thanks to morganoconner for being an awesome cheerleader. I couldn’t have done it without your support.
A note about the therapy provided in this story. I’m not saying the therapy provided in this story is ethical, or appropriate. I decided to view it through the window of the show assuming that if the boys were ever willing to go to therapy they would do it with someone in an office behind a liquor store rather than a professional building. It’s meant to be viewed through the shows scope of “doctors” and “therapists.” I certainly don’t mean to offend anyone or make any political statements. Those of you who know me, know that’s not my style. Thank you all for reading.
