Burdens of Love
Henry’s burning curiosity over the domination therapist had been an ongoing theme in his and Abigail's conversations all week, and now here they were at Iona Payne's office for "couples therapy." He'd stressed the point again and again that understanding physical domination was useful knowledge for his work, but… Well, the man protested a little too much to pass it off so easily as a purely academic exercise.
Finally meeting Mistress Payne, Abigail thinks she might understand Henry's fascination.
Sequel to The Burdens of Love, a modern!Abigail AU. Henry and Abigail met in 2001, are married and have a 13 year old son, Abe. In an AU of 1x08, Henry dragged Abigail to Iona Payne’s office for “research,” but they all ended up getting more than they bargained for.
Many months later, Henry runs into Dr. Molly Dawes again - and this time, they invite her for dinner.
