First, my sincere apologies for the mammoth chapter. They're probably all going to be long from here on out, but since updates will be more sporadic because I actually have to start writing the next chapter, lol, and I'm back to substitute teaching, I figured that you guys wouldn't mind too much. I promise I'll try not to keep you guys waiting too long. ;)
Title: Break My Fall (3/?)
Rating: FRT (Fan Rated suitable for Teens and over) to start, but will most likely be FRM (Fan Rated Suitable for Mature persons) by story's end.
Disclaimer: See Chapter 1. Jane's nightmare flashback was taken directly out of Titanic, and Morris's daydream was almost directly taken from the movie as well. Although I did change the dialogue around somewhat in both scenarios to better fit the situation.
Also, Abby and Jake did talk about his internship, but it happened a little differently than it did on the show. The flashback for this chapter was taken, in part, word for word from 11.21, "Carter est Amoreaux", but the rest of the scene from that episode was changed to fit the plot here where they're concerned. The bottom line? I don't own them. :)
Content Warning: None at this point, but there may (most probably will) be sexual content later on.
Spoilers: Everything up to 11.17, "Back in the World", with bits and pieces of Season 12, but mostly minor stuff.
Summary: AU post-ep to 'Back in the World'. What do you do when the world comes crashing to a stop and you go tumbling down with it? You look for a way to break the fall. [past GallantNeela, eventual RayNeela, and MorrisJane, with other assorted pairings]
Thanks to vuleimoor and amber2403 for the help with the Titanic stuff.
I've been told by my fabulous beta (fc2001) that this needs a beverage warning. So, swallow whatever you're drinking or eating before you click. Your monitor (and/or your keyboard) will thank you later.
