4478 words. a re-working of edith wharton's the age of innocence.

summary: Dan has, in many ways, accomplished everything he set out to do. He had a successful marriage, wonderful children, and a rewarding career. But he knows that even so, there has always been something missing.

note: It seems very fitting for me to finish this fic at Christmas considering that is when I started it, for one of my December prompts three entire years ago. I'm happy to conclude it. It might be the longest fic I've ever written (though we know how much of that is due to Ms. Edith herself and not me) and potentially the most ambitious. I hope you guys enjoy the end, and that it was worth me taking three years and a day to finish! Happy Christmas & other holidays & happy Thursday/Friday if you don't celebrate!
