Story Notes:

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself  that you have built against it.” - Rumi  

I originally wrote this story before Season 7 premiered, so it follows canon through season 6 but then goes AU. This was called “Playing House” when I first wrote it, but I am editing it as I share it here, and I wanted a better title this time around.
