AUTHOR'S NOTES: Written for Martianico
within the exchange seeing-color and first posted to the AO3 collection
for that exchange. All my thanks to my wonderful beta tonko
, who worked hard on this story and who came up with the title, too. But the responsibility for any remaining errors are mine alone. Nitpicks are very welcome, and so is feedback in general!
