After having let this story sit here and become outdated through Season 2 and 3, I finally sat down this month to try to finish it, just to get it out of my head. I thought I had a plan, but as I fleshed everything out, it turned out to be a bad plan, lol. I really hated the melodramatic direction it was going in, so after much deliberation, I've decided to end it with Chapter 5. No happy ending here - just everyone dealing with the consequences of not wanting to take their chances or taking the wrong ones.
Sorry for the bummer ending. I think the last chapter's recurrent theme of loss and regret ties it up nicely though.
Hopefully now I can get onto something happier, although I doubt I can do something that hasn't been done in this community!
Thanks for reading,
