A story about finding yourself, falling in love, and really good duck in plum sauce.
Waaaaaay back in 2013, cupidsbow sent ionaonie the message, "I have this TW project I've been working on for a while, and I'm kind of stuck with it. I thought maybe bouncing ideas off someone might help. Up for it? No pressure if you're busy." And ionaonie answered, "Yes, I'm online. Totally up for bouncing ideas about Teen Wolf about :-)"
This is not that project. However, it was the start of a beautiful collaboration that currently spans around 190,000 words of fiction, and many many rants on topics ranging from Jeff Davis to high-heeled shoes. What you're about to read is the first thing we've finished over the course of the last two years. No-one ever called us fast. :)
If you asked us to identify who wrote which bits, we'd be able to point at some lines with accuracy, but others not so much. They were written by both of us, as we massaged, re-wrote and came up with better ideas. Maybe we should just call ourselves ionabow and be done with it, except that name is lolarious, so no.
Anyway, here's our first story. Enjoy it. There's more coming out of the pipeline soon.
