Summary: To end the bad, sometimes you must end the good as well. Sylar has been living and working with Peter for ten months, reforming the terrorist Rebellion into the benign Mutant Alliance. He has taken it upon himself to mentor Peter as a leader as well as taking over running of the West Virginia household. Along the way, Peter has fallen in love with Sylar as they grow closer as friends and teammates, but Sylar is still mourning Mohinder. In an effort to get his mind off hopelessly wanting Sylar, Peter got his groove back. This story peeks in at six days in their life as they remember the past, plan for the future, grow closer, work, fight, and play together. This is also the story of the end of the war between specials and the government. Extensive flashbacks of the previous ten months are scattered throughout.
