The chapter is done!
But not ready to post. Since regaining human-level intelligence and energy levels, I’ve been rushing madly to catch up on all everything I didn’t do when I was besieged by microbes and shit. Among those things, of course, is the story.
I detected some issues I wanted to correct in this chapter; and after hand wringing, eye-wiggling, and soul searching, I’ve fixed them. But I haven’t yet proofed the words, and that will have to wait til tomorrow.
My apologies for this little dry spell.
