NOTICE: Dear you who have stumbled upon this profile, LCTD has retired from the fanfiction world. Those looking for an update to The Difference Between, if you believe with all your heart that Kaylie and Nicky should have ended up together then so be it. If you think Nicky training in Denver and befriending Kelly Parker would have led to the inevitable birth of Nickelly then that's what happened. It started from the creativity of LCTD and now your own must complete it. Edit: Although it's encouraged to invent your own ending please be respectful and DO NOT STEAL any of the stories, especially without permission. Thank you.
