Story Notes:Written for Fawkesielady_ed as a s secret santa over at the sga_santa comm on LJ. This story really gave me a hard time. I did want to include the "non-con with a happy ending" thing Fawkesielady_ed wished for and I hope I didn't ruin it completely. Huge thanks go to my betas, ca_pierson and Brumeier. Bru basically RP-ed conversations with me when I was stuck and terrified, so it's thanks to her that this story exists in this form today. THANK YOU! You both are lifesavers, Ladies!
