Olivia/Natalia, Ava Peralta, Emma Spencer
Disclaimer: Not mine. They belong, unfortunately, to the less than brilliant folks at CBS, P&G and Telexnet. Were they mine, this would be their world.
Author’s Note: This is a sequel to Almost Home (which can be found on Burning City and Incandescent Fire) and takes place a few weeks after the ending of that story. It would be extremely helpful were you to read that story first, in order to understand Ava’s return to Springfield, her relationship with Olivia and, of course, the kittens. This is set in October of 2009 and supposes an angst-free Otalia storyline, one decidedly lacking in pregnant Natalia, or any mention of a Frankenbaby. In this universe, Natalia did not run off and break Olivia’s heart, she is still working for Blake Marler, and all is well in the Otalia universe. Sue me. I find all the angst unnecessary and annoying.
Also, in my universe, Phillip is not dead or dying, nor is Jeffrey dead (although not because Natalia doesn’t want him to be), and he and Reva are still together. Again, too much angst causes wrinkles.
A/N 2: Beta’d as always by the lovely, talented and patient Darandkerry, and aided now by the brilliant Kelinswriter and her Bossy muse. My eternal gratitude, my dears.
