It's been about a decade since I started writing this fic. I guess I can't be too surprised, since I knew it would be an epic when I started! Still in progress, even though I haven't been able to update as much as I'd like. This franchise left me wanting more after the first film, and I'm still right there, wanting to know more about my favorite characters. Can't wait for a Dotty reunion in the next installment!

You also should read the companion epic, Mad Season by Amber, at .net/s/5316089/1/Mad_Season. There you'll get more of Leon and Amber's story, and also fill in some of the blanks in How We Are.

Thanks to Dixie, Amber, Mimi, and everyone else who has inspired and encouraged.
