You get the idea.

*sips tea enigmatically*

Ooh. What sort of tea is the Best tea?

I read this again this morning, and I still love it just as much as I did last night, if not more. :) For all the same reasons.

So, OW. And it's beautiful.

(Icon just for you.)

Icon! RAR! *fangy hand motions*

Glad you like it. :)

This is just gorgeous. Pure Bran and pure Will and...oh, yes. This is very very right.
