Notes: Angsty, I'm afraid, but not without some hope. Also, the plot made my head hurt, so I hope it makes sense! Writing this for the tardis_bigbang has been a huge, and yet satisfying challenge! Also, as part of the challenge, I have had some awesome artwork created for me by vintagehearted and baffledking - go check it out, and thank them too!
