Beta: Leonida (huge thanks for betaing this story – and for all the great reprimanding and schooling you have given me ;) I will be a lot better writer when I learn to please your eye!)

Author's Notes: English is not my mother tongue, so it isn't perfect. I am a human, too, so that might cause some more mistakes…

About Mercy of Alexander: This never happened. Or well, if it did, I do not know about it… But there is still a lot I do not know about the life of Alexander! AU-marking is there only because I do not know if this could have even possibly happened. So better to be careful with these things ;)

This story, basically, is one of those (again) that are formed while I am walking my dog. It has been there about a month or so, and now I think it is bout a time to write it. Think what you like!

Both the city of Rhadia and its lord, Mazaces, are my imagination! Nothing to do with the reality!
