SUE PERKINS: with a pipe
Rating: Teen (Because Paris and Helen are a touchy-feely kind of couple)
Notes: You should probably all note that I think Andromache is the coolest character in the universe. I don't pretend to be unbiased about this. Also, unfortunately honours has eaten my writing life so this has taken a ridiculously long amount of time.

I always wake up two hours before breakfast.Collapse )
