Covert Cupid ’17 Fanfic: Caitlin

Note: This entry is part of this year’s Covert Cupid challenge, in which each host drew three characters from a hat and used them to write a romantic fanfiction short. You can hear them all read aloud in Episode 80 of the podcast.

I went into this fan fic only knowing who one of the characters was; having a vague notion about the fandom of another; and having never even remotely heard of the third. Because of this, there was extensive wiki reading to find out whatever I could about the unknowns, and I ultimately realized I could make basically my entire fic one big lead up to a solid punchline. I hope you will enjoy it, as I was ultimately pretty pleased with and amused by it.
