This story has passed the 100K words mark. There's probably still another 100K to go, however, before the first part of the extended story arc is completed. Obviously, this story is going to take some time to get through, so I do appreciate any reads/reviews. I do have other, shorter stories if this one is too long, which I will post for you all here in the near future.
