In a post-apocalyptic world, Waverly wants to join the Outsiders - a team of brave people tasked with finding provisions for the city, and the cure.

An exploration of how Waverly and Nicole's relationship might progress, whilst they and the wider gang work on trying to end The Curse once and for all.
Chapter 1: The Decision
"Do you want to move in here with me?"
She shut her eyes against the prickle of tears starting again; and remembered back to the first time Nicole's touch had made her feel like that...
3: The Fight
"Fuck me? Fuck me??! Fuck you!"
Nicole slowly walks her over to the police cruiser. Whispering gently, "Wynonna Earp, I am arresting you for dangerous use of a firearm..."
"I had this whole speech worked out." Waverly looked into Nicole's eyes with love and affection, and more than a hint of nerves. " 'One year ago today'..."
6: The Plan
Nicole was lost. All she knew was that the three people in the room who had seen the most darkness were apparently on the same wavelength. And that meant something very, very bad.
7: Endings and Beginnings
"Nicole? You know how I'm always telling you that I don't need you to protect me? Well, today I do."
The Sum Total of Living is a loose interpretation of Dante's The Divine Comedy, by way of Wynonna Earp and The Good Place. Set in the established universe of The Good Place, it imagines the crossover between Wynonna Earp's reality and the existence of a good place; a bad place; and a really very bad place—revenant hell. Although the setting is based on both shows, the cast of characters is almost entirely that of Wynonna Earp's world, and the narrative centers around two strands: Nicole Haught, trying to understand the afterlife; and Waverly Earp, trying to get back to her.
There are three parts to this story, with three chapters in each part, and a final coda. The nine main chapters is a nod to Dante's structure, but the need to write all the chapters to the same precise word count is my own.
