When Stan and Kyle discover their true feelings for each other, their time is cut short when Kyle receives news he is moving out of the country. Two years later, nobody has heard a word from Kyle. Kenny is developing new feelings for Stan, but Stan's curiosity of Kyle's disappearance leads him to find his best friend and lover, no matter the cost. After a breakup with Stan, Wendy seeks a new love interest, and finds herself falling in love with Craig Tucker. But even her new love has some demons of his past.
The fanfiction is spread between numerous different arcs, and is currently still in production. Please be aware some facts or subjects may be vulnerable to change.
The fanfiction was originally conceived in July 2014. Since then, several different story arcs have been published, and the series is still ongoing. Currently, there are two 'books' published (significant parts between the story as a whole). Currently, the series is expected to be perhaps not one of the longest South Park fanfictions, but perhaps one of the longest fanfictions ever created. The author has stated "I want to deliver the story in a meaningful way, even if that means I have to write a long story."
