At long last, the master list post is up, and so we may now take responsibility for our stories! Yay! And I now know that my own fic was written for me by [livejournal.com profile] mikiya2200 - Too Little, Too Late. Thank you again! :)

The prompt I choose (of three) was this: Mary never died, but she couldn't run from hunting forever (bonus if everyone in the family survives in the AU 'verse) Which is always an interesting premise, at least to me. :)

So, here t'is. The title is from Shakespeare's Sonnet 19, and as the challenge indicates - it's a gen fic. Beta'd, of course, by the talented [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou did her usual cheering on that made me double down and finish it up. Thank you, ladies!

The opening bit of dialogue is from a transcript of the season four episode "In the Beginning".
