Quick! aelora's holiday cheer is fading, and I know a fic that she needs to read, but I haven't bookmarked it and I can't remember who wrote it or even when it was posted!
It's set decades in the future, when Molly is married (I think to Micah) and has a daughter who coincidentally has the same time-traveling ability as Hiro, and she's visiting a grey-haired Mohinder. Then Sylar shows up after not being heard from in years, and tells Mohinder he's been searching forever for a special with that ability, at which point Mohinder realizes his granddaughter has just been killed and has a heart attack. And just when you're about to hate Sylar viciously, you find out that he's been wanting that ability so he could go back in time and prevent himself from ever becoming a murderer in the first place, and causing pain to Mohinder and so many others.
Does this sound familiar? If so, can you tell me the author's name or post a link? Thank you! :0)
(and now, I have to run back to work on the projects that I'm falling behind on and about to get in trouble for...)
