Summary: What happened in the cave, and after.
A/N: This is my take on the original third-season story-line. My thanks to Carole for her eagle-eyes, LauraG for her enthusiasm, and all of the ladies of the Thursday Night Club for those discussions. This story would not have been what it is without you all :-)
As an aside, "The Mirror Crack'd" and "Elysium" take place in the same universe. It's not necessary to have read "The Mirror Crack'd" to understand "Elysium."

This is the end of "Elysium." As it stands now, I don't see myself writing any more stories in this particular universe--not when the sequel to "When Fall Comes to New England" is stomping its feet, waiting to be written---but...fool to say "never." My thanks to all of you who have read this story---your support and interest mean more to me than I can say. Thank you all, again.
