Dedication: To Ecolea, for without her work, none of the spin-off ideas herein would have made sense. For Russ, Rafi, and Kike…the best HACU roomies a guy could have.

And for everyone who's written and encouraged me to finish this monstrous piece of fan-fic…my eternal thanks. Tex.

Special Thanks to Jarrod. You know who you are. You're one Hell of a Beta!
