The hero of this story is a woman in men's clothing who has a long coat a little too long in the sleeves. On the way to the story's conclusion the hero encounters a person so reserved just the touch of a hand speaks volumes. This person has a collar. Plot elements include sex somewhere that might be overheard and a sort-of family of broken people who are less broken around each other.
And the thing is, that could be an awesome story, y/n?
