You may remember my September Stories project that I started back in 2015. Due to injury, events, and general slackitude, that project continues well past September. But it IS still continuing! Excelsior! In the interest of full disclosure, however, I must admit that this story, due to its sheer weight, broke the mold--it took me multiple days to write (whereas the others were done in only one). But I intend for the others to keep to the pattern.
