Summary: Din Djarin loses the love of his life, his son, and his faith in the way.

Special thanks to my Alpha readers Jilly James & DarkJediQueen and my Betas Chris King & Ladyholder. I was honestly blown away and truly thrilled by the art Mizu created for my work. She knocked it right out of the park!
This fic started out as some wistful idea and it bloomed organically out of me in a way all good ideas do. It wouldn’t have been the same without Jilly’s epic support throughout the entire writing process.
