A/N: Nathaniel died Christmas 2000. And when Nate came home, he asked David, “You back with Jennifer yet?” which—to me—seemed to indicate that Jennifer and David broke up during 2000. Additionally, after Keith dumped David, Nate asked David how long they gone out and David had said “six months.” So, I’m going to fanwank that they got together during later summer/fall 2000.
