I was super excited writing this chapter. My muse is delivering faster than ever, and she’s serving up all kinds of goodies in this chapter. It’s loooong, like the first chapters of this story, and it’s chock-full of information and all of it is important and relevant. So sit back, relax with some coffee, tea, or alcohol (you might need it), and enjoy! Meanwhile, I’ll be furiously working on the next chapter – another doozy, methinks.
By the way… I’m posting this story on Fictionpad a la Fanfiction.net (since I refuse to post it again on the latter). We shall see how that works out, although so far, so good. If you happen to follow me there AND here, then you might want to disregard the updates on this story that you get from Fictionpad. Sorry about that!
