Summary: My take on what's going on in Sara's head during the Heir to the Demon episode. If you want a way too detailed analysis of a character's thoughts then this is the fic for you. It also has flashbacks to Sara's time in the League.

Review: This replays some of these early scenes with Nyssa the show gave us and puts them neatly into perspective with some Flashbacks that explore how Nyssa and Sara met and got together. I enjoy the way this explains perfectly how Sara fell in love, how she came to slot into the League and also how she left and what she still felt for Nyssa at the time.

The first episodes give us a very complicated relationship and I'm not sure the show ever acknowledge that beyond what was necessary for the on screen drama, but this build perfectly around the things that go on in canon and makes for a very interesting character study with a side dish of complicated and not straight up happy romance with the possibility for more.
