Hi guys! Grey's is on in just a few hours, and here's the thing: I. Have. Fic.
(Finally.) It was initially supposed to be a post-6x05 one-shot, and then it snowballed into a post-6x06, and then post-6x07, et. al. But I HAVE IT NOW! in it's emotional glory. So, before anything, I'd just like to say that my loyalty lies mostly in M/D. But when it comes to one-shots, I have never been vaguely able to come up with something happy, and fluffy and anything to that effect. I love reading fluffy fics, though, it's just the execution that turns out a little elusive for me. Which is why my tendency to gravitate towards A/I. The brokenness and the tragedies and the dark-and-twisty-ness? It compels me. Greatly. Also, reason why I tried out something vastly different in this fic (you'll know when you read it) was probably due to the song it was inspired by, namely The Chain
by Ingrid Michaelson, which was played in an episode of Grey's and is amazing to no end. So yes, change is good.
Anyhoo, without further ado, I present to you (rhyme!)...The One-Shot. I also own nothing
Although it'd be pretty darn sweet if I did. ( relapse, an alex-centric one-shotCollapse )
It would have turned out a lot better if I wasn't so pressed for time, so apologies if it isn't that fantastic. But, -sniff-, it's the thought that counts!
I hope you guys liked it, though. Comments are lovely, by the way. ♥
out.ETA: I hope you guys read this before watching 6x09, though. It wouldn't seem so...well, irrelevant if you did. :)
