Author's Notes: It is not possible that there has ever been a fest with better mods than this one. Many thanks for your years of hard work and I hope that next Christmas you are beset only by vouchers for foot massages delivered by people of your choice of gender with the physiques of Olympic divers. *Mod taradiane would be content with Tom Hiddleston dropping by for tea and conversation. Mod dysonrules will take the aforementioned Olympic divers, but would request that they wear hoodies. Only hoodies.
cassie_black12, you have always been such a stalwart bastion of kindness and enthusiasm in fandom. Thank you! This is less one of your prompts than two of them smooshed together with bits of the third sprinkled. I should have stopped reading at the first one!
Thanks, also, to my beta J, who is the patientest and kindest! Truly a gem! And also to R for her spot-on points of ‘More here!’ and her advice and criticism, which was as incisive and invaluable as ever (as well allowing me to shamelessly steal a couple of her lines), and to T, T and L for their shouting at me to finish. All remaining mistakes are my own fault entirely.
And for the trainspotters amongst us, this story is set in 2000, during the St Pancras Upgrade, while the Eurostar was still leaving from Waterloo International, which is nowhere near as sexy as the new station!
