Mini-Bingo! And a reward for chokolattejedi (at last)

March is almost over and I must admit, I'd hoped to be able to fill all four squares of my mini-bingo, but alas, it was not to be. However, I did manage two squares, and in the process I finished a long-standing WIP and also wrote a reward for August Rush - my last one! YAY!
