Nice. Good story, and I have to say, I kind of... cracked up in some points. :guilt:
But then I felt really bad--seriously wanted to cry-- when I read the ending. The cliff-hanger provided he perfect amount of angst left for the reader to deal with. Good choice, but I still am mentally trying to come up with a suitable closer for this one-shot.
Most of it's happy--Gerard to the rescue. But that's just me XD.
