The sequel to this story is now being uploaded. This is the first of part of a series based on 5x14 episode- My Bloody Valentine:

1. From Laughter to Desperation

2. Spin-off: Prayer of Desperation

3. Spin-off: Prayer of Concern

4. Sequel: Free to fix you and me

Although, it is not required to understand the sequel, the spin-offs are based on the first story. They help to get a line on how I figure the characters in question are handling the situation. The spin-off can be read in any order although the list is how I figure each story fits into the series. You could probably get away with reading the sequel separately but I alluded to feelings the characters feel in the first 3 stories before it.
