    Summary

    Wings can tell you a lot about a person. Their personality, their state of mind, their relationships- it was like an autobiography on one's back.

    Summary

    After Thomas' suicide attempt, we didn't get to see much of what he did, or what happened, that helped him to eventually feel better. It's unlikely he got any professional therapy, but it seems to me that something had to happen that helped him to change. This is my take on what happened--the work he did with himself, and the interactions he had with the people who care about him--that helped him to eventually decide to go on living, and in particular in this story, how he got back to work.

    I'll add more character and relationship tags as I go.
