Story Summary: She is more than than the sum of her parts. She's more than skin. She is.

Canonical Notes: Set about six months after the events of X3.

Author's Note: This story has been burning in my head ever since Ember first came to me and I started to see how we got from "He is Fire, He is Pain" to the situation encountered in Ember. This fic addresses questions and holes left hanging and ties together the other stories in the story arc.
