I am enjoying this, I usually Groan at crossovers, but your attention to detail and how this story has manifested itself has me hooked. I got a little chill when the transmission played back...it literally was one of the last things I would of expected. I would have never thought to cross these two properties over, but for the reasons you have listed, it is definitely doable. I look foward to reading the remainder of this, and am glad to know that this story got a lot longer and a lot more complicated.
B.T.W. Hope the Gas leak gets sorted out.
