EDIT: Please DO NOT repost my material ANYWHERE without my permission. This is something I am very serious about. Of course, posting excerpts or quotes is completely fine and I encourage that but reposting entire chapters on rival fanfiction sites without my permission and without crediting me is not acceptable and I will TAKE.

Author’s Notes: I posted the first chapter of this story in 2007. At the time, Gerard and Frank were unmarried, childless and pretty damn friendly with each other. I posted the last chapter of the story in 2011, almost 3.5 years since I began. Over this time, thousands of people have visited my journal and (presumably) read this story. Thank you to all those who have taken the time to read my work, and a special thanks to those who have taken the time to leave a comment letting me know how much you liked/loved/hated what I’d written.
