Author Notes: Littleisle, you set me a challenge. There was so much to choose from. But, I think I settled on something that will intrigue you. Many thanks to Snupin Santa and the elves for your encouragement and the extension. This monster wouldn't be tamed right up until the end. To my for-now-anonymous beta, without whom I couldn't have done it. Any mistakes are mine and mine alone.
