Future!fic with a time travel twist. Inspired and loosely based on The Sword in the Stone
You could call this the “director’s cut” version of this story – it’s got the extended opening that didn’t made it to theatrical release, the gratuitous sex scenes the censors didn’t want, and all those moments that were left on the cutting room floor just to bring it down to a reasonable view-time length. In reality this just means the fic-exchange deadline kicked my butt and I was denied the time to edit properly and expand the story to match my grander plans, so with some creatively applied duct tape and a lot of luck I may have managed to reshape this into a better piece of storytelling. I’ll let you guys be the judge!
Still entirely dedicated to derryere
