Disclaimer: Don't own 'em - not making any money off 'em. Dern it.
Prompt Notes: Inspiration for this fic taken from tamingthemuse prompt: #509: Elastic
Notes: These parts are not in any particular order. That is intentional - they won't be placed in order in the final story, either.  But if you want the climax of the story, I'd say that was written last week/week before in Part C-1 & C-2.  There are still three or four parts to go, though, 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.

Now with the correct version!  My appologies.  I only found that I hadn't copied everything when I got up this morning.  It's right now!
