"A SEPARATED SOUL": AND DO YOU THINK YOU'VE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION, THIS TIME? Um. This is a vignette, a one-shot, and I expect a lot of people will hate it.

But I didn't have enough of the mechanics and backstory--the rules of the fictional world--taped down in my head before I started. So I don't think the themes I was trying to explore came through very clearly. Plus, it's overwritten to the point that it's a tic rather than a stylistic choice.
