Many thanks to Tarion for talking to me the night this story came alive. I had been struggling to write her b-day fic since before her birthday, and out of our conversation, this story was born! It's almost two months too late, but Happy Birthday, Tarion!
Many thanks as well to my dear Rhapsody, who beta'd this short story for me in less than a day. I know I might've rushed you hun, but I wanted to get this to Tarion. She waited so long!
I must also thank the EoA for providing a quick reference for a few words and the perfect location. I also found two pictures on the internet of two smallish waterfalls, and together they provided the backdrop. And one must always thank the good Professor for allowing one to muck about in his sandbox. I had absolute fun with this one!
