My entry for the 2014 J2 Big Bang challenge:
Thanks much to the very talented neigeausoleil for her awesome artwork on this (seriously loved that art, it makes me tear up a little every time I look at it).
Background: Yeah a lot of this was a reaction to some of my bigger annoyances with season 9. Fun fact, I wrote most of this when the season was just a little over half done so feel free to laugh at some canon points I ended up predicting and some that were broken by the show.
I also like to think that if we were to ever get a big-budget movie for the show, this is what we would get. The rest I won’t spoil just… enjoy.
(also a BIG thanks to my lovely editor & fellow writer at the Winchester Family Business, nightsky for helping me edit this)
