Takes place during season two, after Christmas Party but before Booze Cruise, somewhere in early January.
Trigger warning for themes of emotional and sexual abuse. Additional and more specific warnings for sexual abuse at the beginning of each chapter when applicable. I take these issues very seriously and write from a place of experience. However, if you do not feel I am treating this subject with the gravity it deserves, please contact me.
1. Chapter One: The Incident by elephantskeleton [Reviews - 2] 6 (1960 words)
This is my first fan fic, brought over from fanfiction.net, but edited. This chapter contains depictions of emotional abuse. I am trying to keep Roy in character, but draw a lot from my own experiences with abusive people when writing him.
Chapter description: Roy is jealous.
2. Chapter Two: Suspicion by elephantskeleton [Reviews - 1] (2016 words)
In this universe Dwight is a little closer to his sister Fannie and listens to her ideas more often. However Dwight is still a product of his upbringing channeling Fannie's feminist sentiments through a thick layer of misogyny and paternalism.

5. Chapter Five: Give and Take by elephantskeleton [Reviews - 2] 3 (2806 words)
TRIGGER WARNING: This chapter recounts sexual assault in a relationship with non-explicit detail as well as emotional manipulation leading up to and after the event. I have not marked off the triggering section as some writers do because I do not know what could be left out for the story to still make sense. I also maintained the rating of T, as the subject matter, while difficult, is important and all references to sex are non-explicit. If you have any issues with any of this at all, please, don't be afraid let me know.
6. Chapter Six: The Perfect Day by elephantskeleton [Reviews - 1] 2 (3150 words)
No warnings for this chapter.
