Well, here goes nothing. ;) Inspirations for this piece came from all over the place, but most notably parron's desire to see stories about the Gullwings before Yuna joined up, heyheyrenay's call for genfic, and a drabble by edenbound that stuck with me for days.

(I opened my eyes and I was flying into the sunrise, a dark red-orange-pink smudge of light ringing the horizon.)

So this is the first time I've really spent with the Paine of "Fate" for a good long while. As usual when I slip from one backstory to another, it was a little disconcerting for the first few paragraphs and then settled in remarkably easily. I don't know that I'll do any more of these yet, but the story for this one was there and I wanted to set it down. As always, we'll see.
