Summary: This is not what they need. This is not what they want. This is what they have, to build up something from ashes of their dreams.
Author's Notes: No one ever told Russell that three’s a crowd. Also, I don’t believe I’ll get a chance to point this out in the fic proper, so mentioning it now, Ed’s probably on his late twenties in this.**nods** Thought you’d like to know. I hope the time-fugue between the two first scenes doesn’t confuse anyone. ^^;
