Disclaimer: Don't own 'em - not making any money off 'em. Dern it.
Prompt Notes: Inspiration for this fic taken from tamingthemuse prompt #385: Syzygy
Notes: As for syzygy, I went with the astronomical definition of the word: A configuration of celestial bodies. There was a pretty spectacular one in May of 2000 that included the Sun, the Moon, and all the planets except for Uranus and Pluto (which was, at the time, still considered a planet.) That alignment actually happened several months after Who Are You aired, so I fudged the timeline a bit for the purposes of the story.
