Almost certainly breaking every princess rule going and probably ripping up a fair amount of the lore in two whilst I'm at it (though in my defence, there's context), but here's an effort at what Falamar was up to shortly before his commission at the start of the Grand Menagerie scenario. I have decided to enter this story (or a mildly editted version of it) into a short story contest. In this light, I thought it prudent to remove this story from this forum. Thanks for all your encouragement. -- Jacob Busby 18th March 2011.
