So I was reading Archive of Our Own (I mean, when am I not?) and I was inspired by a muke fanfic and I went to the ‘If I Stay’ premiere (about two weeks ago?) and I had to write this- I’ll try and find the fic but for now I’m so inspired to write and I WILL write a part two if you want it (part two will have smut, somehow)
