Summary: Gwen is a Campbell, first and always.

Reccer's notes: I love fic like this, picking up where canon kind of missed the mark, since the Campbells were woefully underdeveloped and axed way too quickly for my tastes. This fic fleshes out Gwen and her family and gives the characters a story. I love how it portrays the hunter life and community and the juxtaposition of different upbringings inside and outside of the hunter world.

[Short excerpt]“Why not?” she demands. “Why can’t I live forever?”

“None of us will,” he says. “The average life expectancy for an American born in 1985 was 74.6 years, but that’s not hunters. We’re lucky if we make it to fifty. Or haven’t you noticed that most people in this family die before they turn thirty?”

“Shut up, dork,” she says. “You’re an idiot.” But she feels like she’s the idiot. She’s ten years, nine months, and three days old. She never realized until now that she’s more likely to die than to get married.
