Story Notes:

For Gershwin, who believes she is a lapdog.
Many thanks to OffYourBird and sandy_s for their insight, enthusiasm, and encouragement at the draft stage!  I didn't always follow their suggestions in quite the way they intended, I think, but they were both wonderful.  Also, some EF-reader comments on what worked and didn’t on my Impossible fic proved incredibly helpful.  
Canon stands through the fifth season, but Joss’s comments outside the series do not. I own nothing from the show and seek no profit.
Warnings: Suicidal ideation, underage drinking, rude language, and unrepentant flouting of NYC’s leash laws.
