This song-challenge story is the Nick-narrated companion to my Lacroix-narrated "Whence the Truce." Each stands alone -- that was important for several reasons, not least because "Whence the Truce" appeared in a zine, not on list -- but they are nevertheless a prequel/sequel pair, my only one so far.
