Summary: “I might have to put this at the top of the list of worst New York trips ever.”
Author’s Note: This episode tore me up on the inside. I can't really handle all that happened so I had to change it to fit my fanon lines and keep my sanity. I don’t usually write Erin as an alcoholic but it was such a huge part of the storyline. I want to thank all the fans and friends who comforted me and made me smile as I was losing it, especially rebakitt3n who read over this before I posted it. I love this character, I love this ship, and I just hope to keep going as long as I can.

I'm still grateful that they're speaking to me though and intend to tell their stories as long as I can.
