Many thanks to my editors Leslie, BethAnn, and Kyrie. I couldn't do this without you. Really. Thank You!
And a huge thank you to Dana for the perfectly perfect graphics!!

The story title and 'chapter' titles are from the R.E.M. song 'Orange Crush' and used without permission but with the utmost respect.

this story triggered my best friend so I am putting a general 'trigger warning' out there. One of the characters in this story dissociates - severely. and there are some (one or two) depictions of child abuse in this story, but I think I kept it pretty mild. that said, you may not want to read it, and that is totally okay!

Brian and Jim refer to a certain type of dissociation as 'Multiple Personality Disorder' or MPD. This story takes place in 1990, and that was the term that was used at the time. It wasn't until 1994 that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th edition) changed the name of the disorder to Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). However, (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong) the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems continues to list this disorder as MPD.

Ok, I started to list all the names, songs, etc. that I used without permission, but I got writer's cramp. So basically, if you recognize something, I'm either using it without permission, or I made it up and it's total coincidence that it really exists. If you want to know about something in particular, or even in general, email me. *g*

oh, and part 1 "it's just like heaven here ..." is Yosemite. Nothing has changed except the title.
