The idea of this story was to write a present-time counterpart to First Date. This story, however, is not written from one character's point of view, and the mood is somehow different, too. The first words were written down on June 25, 2006 while A Hero That's None, First Date and Lost And Found were still being worked on, but the more serious work started around the end of November.


Recent developments, especially those described in Lost And Found, lead both Chip and Gadget to a decision. Independently, they decide to go onto one last date. If they finally manage to reveal their feelings to each other, they believe that the purpose of dating will be fulfilled. If not, they believe it shall not be. But first, the Rescue Rangers, being more than ever before, have to solve another case...
