Story Notes:

To reiterate: This story only takes into account Book 5 canon. Some minor book 6 and 7 references have slipped in during revision, but not in significant ways.

Story contains quite a bit of spell violence as part of dueling and battles. Letter of the law rape tag and sexual assault/harrasment warning for off-scene and minor incidents such as kissing a sleeping person who does not want to be kissed. Language is mild with just bit of swearing. Any sexual interaction is off-scene and mostly implied through indirect language.

A ton of people have betaed and provided helpful feedback to this story. The last chapter notes will list them all as well as the bibliography.

At the end of this chapter is an extra chapter that was written in May of 2009 at the request of xrayjuliet who very generously outbid others on the Support Stacie Auction for the prerogative of determining the plot of it. It was written after Resonance was completed and was originally posted alone. But, looking back at old comments, it seems like it’s best put in where it sequentially belongs, despite the shift in style and tone.


 


There’s too much history with the old chapter numbers to put it into sequence and make it 24, so it is added as an addendum to 23.


(In hindsight, I don’t know why I didn’t name it 23 and 3/4. Weird.)
