Story Notes:
Note: This takes place after the end of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and ties in with my fics For Freedom's Sake and Paternity. This story also slightly ignores the continuity created by the 2009 Star Trek film.

WARNING: This story involves graphic depictions of a terminal illness and death. I don't shy away from the ugly details. If you think any of this will be triggering, please turn back now.

DISCLAIMER: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and I'm not making any money off this story.

Final Note: This story has its own playlist. The end of every chapter will have links music on box.com. They're perfectly safe and won't harm your computer. :)

This chapter is in pieces because this site kept cutting it off in the middle. The music links will be at the true end of the chapter. Sorry about that. It looks fine in previews and then is all chopped up in the live post. REALLY frustrating!
