So. I caved.
I am such a weenie, lol.
It was my original intention not to post this story here until it was finished in its entirety in the hopes I wouldn't simply add another mark to my growing tally of dangling WIPs. I'm still not going to post new chapters at this site until I get a certain amount of chapters ahead, but I have like zero will power, y'all. I like reading what you guys think way too much and abstaining from posting? Is hella hard. Besides. This site has been kind of dead, and if I can contribute in some small way to breathing some life back into it, I'd like to.
Anyway. This is my latest Caryl AU. It's inspired by a drabble I posted in my Across the Universe(s) collection. Some of you might recognize it as the prologue for this story. Our jumping off point.
Anyway, just a forewarning. In my head, I see this playing out as a crackish dramedy AU with a few bits of angst here and there because I may whine but I (not so) secretly love it and a healthy amount of sex (lol) if I don’t chicken out and play it safe.
The story will also most likely be told in non-linear fashion, so if that’s not something you’re willing to take on, back out now.
If you want to read the full author's note--it's even longer than this one, lol--feel free to check out either of my blogs because I've already blathered enough.
On with the story.

About a month after Vegas. The first time they see each other again. Aka, the oh shit, we’re really doing this moment.
