Author's note: After many delays and much stalling, it's finally finished. I present my third Torchwood fic. Major thanks to the beta goddesses bookwrm89 and teleens_journal who put up with my constant emails and questions as well as catching my mistakes. Also, thanks to aranellaurelote for Brit-picking. This is my longest fic yet, and I've decided to post it in chapters. I hope to start working on my fourth fic soon. :)
