The underlying idea for this story was Nhaingen's. She gave me the title, and she has also served as my beta reader on this fic. In many senses this has been a collaborative effort. It was her encouragement and willingness to talk through ideas with me that led to the final product. For that, and also for her ongoing friendship and support, not to mention her fabulous art, I owe Nhaingen the greatest thanks.
