I am OMG so excited that this is up. It's been my baby for the past few days.
Summary: Putting past poisons gently to sleep
Notes: This story is mainly a labor of love on Lyra's part. I did the easy part, which was write it, but she made it happen like this, with all the beautiful footnotes totally realized. She was totally amazing about it. Now, here's another thing: you really do have to read the footnotes. And it's best to turn off your pop up blocker, or else you won't be able to, or maybe your browser will do what my safari did before I realized that my pop up blocker was on, which is have a footnote rave. Also, thank you to Caro, for being so excited about it. And, the summary is from yet another Patrick Park song (yes, Slod, I am still waiting on my sweet whiskey Jesus.)
