Author's Notes: First things first, this was written for the mini bang round at undeadbigbang, and it also covers the hc_bingo square of mine, fighting. Also, I was originally going to make this a short chaptered fic, based very, very loosely on the radio drama sequel that released only in Japan. Well, now it's still very, very loosely based—now more of an inspiration than based on—and a long one-shot. And I'd like to give a very special thanks to my artist twisted_slinky—be sure to check out the link to her art masterpost and give it some love! Also, since she is my BFF, she served as the beta for this fic as well. I hope everyone enjoys!
