You guys... I pumped this little beastie out in a couple of hours tonight. So wasn't expecting to write another story today, but this insisted, nay, DEMANDED to be written. It's a much whumpier, much feels-ier version of S1E2, so there will be spoilers. I'm still in shock that I wrote this thing today. I'm so excited about it! :D Hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

Oh, and the title is totally based on Plato's Allegory of the Cave. Couldn't resist; the English professor is strong with this one. I was going to call it "Of Motorcycles and Men," but it doesn't have the right ring to it. Both, though, are literary allusions. Can you tell I teach English? ;) Also, I'm crossing my fingers that the medical stuff is right. I did do research, but if I get anything wrong, it's on me, because I am decidedly not a doctor. I, much like our dear Gus, don't have the stomach for it.

Please let me know what you think! :)
