Title: A Former Friend of Mine, Part G
Fandom: HBO's Oz
Author: dustandroses
Pairing: Beecher/Pretty Much Everyone in Oz
Rating: NC17
Genre: Slut!Beecher, Post Canon, Fairly Cracky

Prompt Notes: Inspiration for this fic taken from tamingthemuse prompt: #515: Gaoler  (Note: In Oz, the Corrections Officers are called hacks.)
Notes: These parts are not in any particular order. That is intentional - they won't be placed in order in the final story, either.  There are still three or four parts to go, so it's not over yet, people!
This story is for the Oz  lyric_wheel which is already overdue.  But I'm packing for a big move, and have no idea when it will be completed.  Until then it will be locked to tamingthemuse mods only.
