The last three stories in the main series were originally stand-alone fics. But when I wrote the first one, the others made more sense as sequels. So I've adjusted and adapted them as necessary. The Interludes were also somewhat independent before I tried to integrate them into the main series, but since I have more of them in the wings than I'd initially imagined, I have separated them into a sub-series. Both groups of stories are listed more or less in chronological order.
The title song in each story is the song that inspired the fic, but not always the most important one. All of these stories are AU to some degree.
