Chapter 37 could be considered the end of this story. This chapter is set in the future as indicated by time stamps. To repeat for reference, Miranda was 51 in the last chapter, Andy 26, children 11. Isabelle Malara, the first person who shot Miranda, was 23.
I’ll warn you that there’s one flashback in the midst of a flash-forward. I’ve tried to make the timestamps impossible to misunderstand. It should be easy enough to follow but should also make you blissfully relieved I’ll no longer be around writing such nonsense after this chapter.( Read more...Collapse )
Thank you to anyone who continues to read. Special thanks, as always, to Rosemary. I’m using an English English Word machine for this instead of American English. Apologies if I haven’t caught all variance. I also apologize for any formatting errors I can’t change because of this charming LJ interface. Flashbacks to past events are in blocked italics. This is the penultimate chapter and the last set in present time.( Read more...Collapse )

A/N: A long chapter. Very, very long. Of course, this story is set before New York allowed gay marriage. In this timeline, it’s been more than a year (and no comments from the quite rightly indignant peanut gallery about that), so Miranda’s 51, Andy 26, and the twins and Juan Carlo are 11 years old.
Thank you, everyone who wrote comments of support for this story. To be honest I didn’t feel equal to answering them until I had a chapter right there in front of you. I can now.
