WARNINGS: This is a very dark, desolate story that contains major character death and dark and angsty themes. It is not my usual style at all. You have been warned.
AUTHOR'S NOTE 1: I like several other people have been thinking pretty much constantly about the upcoming episode, based on what we saw in the preview/had heard rumours about. This story was one of those stories that I can't say I wanted to write, but I had to write it - it pretty much wrote itself. I think I can safely say it's the darkest thing I have ever written. Thanks to adriannacoylho for reading the story and giving me her reaction and to ashley_pitt who upon being told I had written a dark story said 'I think that you should post the story....and then anything, anything....that happens in the episode....can't be as bad...'
