*sigh* Well, I'd hoped to have this done in time for Christmas, but unfortunately people have actually expected me to socialize, for heaven's sake. What a waste of good writing time!!
At any rate, rather than wait till I'm done (and risk the poor thing languishing on my hard drive till next Christmas), I've decided to go ahead and post it in pieces, so people will poke me into finishing it. Or at least, I hope that someone will like this odd little AU enough to poke me into finishing it. *sweatdrops* Author's notes are at the end of the post (go read them if you're totally lost and confused), but the only real warning is that this is very, very, very AU.
