Very entertaining, thank you. I have enjoyed the story from the very beginning, and SS/ is not a favorite 'ship' of mine.
So glad you enjoyed it and stuck it out even if not your favorite pair. SS/HG is my OTP, although LM/HGhas grown to be my 2nd fave ship, and the three together are my OT3.
I had fun with the prompt although I admit I did change it to suit my fancy. :)
