Author's Note: Written for j2_reversebang. I can't thank kelleigh enough for agreeing to let me pinch hit for her. I loved her art when I first saw it back on claims day but choosing a top five was hard enough without trying to order them, too. I'm glad I got the chance to write for her amazing prompt. It was so much fun.
Beta'd by my besties gluedwithgold and dancing_adrift, without whom I would be so very lost and horrendously unproductive. Thanks for everything, loves.
