We're a Storm In Someone Else's Teacup by paperclipbitch - at this point, even if the ending is a complete letdown (which I don't think is possible), it's completely entranced me. Also, I am glad I waited until it was over, because otherwise, there would have been some serious hysterics. I'm on part 7b. I assume I will be able to breathe again eventually, but for the last few parts, so not been happening. My death by overadrenalinzed rush will be worth it.
Slow build at the beginning that's perfect in retrospect, because when it takes off, Christ, it takes off.
