Author's note: For those of you who are familiar with my writing, this story is meant to take place just before the Undiscovered Country. You might notice some small inconsistencies between things that happen in this fiction and things that happen in the UC so... mea culpa! Please have patience with me. If possible, while reading this story, forget the plot that is to follow. I'd like this fiction to stand on its own; I think it can and it should; I'm very proud of it.

Costume design and 'advertisements' for this story can be found at The Looking Glass forum: tlgf(dot)suddenlaunch3(dot)com, on the WIP board. Join us!
