Suddenly Falling Author's Note/Content Warning

The heroine of this story lives with anxiety. It is a big part of who she is. As such, this story does contain two on-page panic attacks (ch 17 and 23). In the time before this story starts, our heroine lost her mother and tried to handle her grief through heavy partying. The story of that time in her life is told as the lead-up to a discussion of an attempted assault during her time in college (in the past, not by a main character, and not discussed graphically). The rest of the story can be understood without all of the details of that story so if you would like to skip that section, skip chapter 18.
