Thanks for the kind words. This one was really fun to write.

For those who really appreciated the story, you can thank Mr. Rome for putting his stamp of approval on the idea before I even started working on it. While reading through WoR, page 96 really knocked the wind out of me, and right then I knew I had a story.
