Some Kate/Abby moments from the show, set to the song by Morphine.
1) Basic grasp of English. We're not asking for perfection, but if it gets in the way of the reader enjoying the story we won't list it.
2) It has to be a Kate/Abby fic. It's what people are here to read, after all. We understand that this line can be surprisingly hard to draw, so we err on the side of caution
Did I Miss Something?
I'm hoping I did, because it means more fic to read! ;) Anyway, if you know of something that isn't listed then comment with a link and any extra information you feel like including.
New additions to The List will be marked NEW! and will be announced in a post to the community.
Mistakes, Dead Links, Comments, Questions, &c.
Just comment and we'll figure it out together. :)
