This is a different tale. No spoilers, please, at least for a week or so. Ryan and the Gringott took me to a place I had no idea I wanted to go, needed to go, and I came back from that place the better for it.  I thought hard about whether I wanted to read other stories about this and found it to be complete in itself. I think it unlikely that other stories are posisble. But you may judge that after you have read it.

I enjoyed this story. One of the acid tests of how much I like a story is whether or not I wish I'd written it. Absolutely I do. Good stuff, Hamster.

...and I agree with Timmy that the story stands complete as it is. That is the reason - and the only reason - that I didn't tick the top box in the voting panel.

I have a hard time imagining related stories standing up to this one; it seems to me to be entirely complete as it is. I am certainly glad I read it.

An excellent story.  Well done, as the author gathered the threads which, at first seemed to be almost randomly scattered and wove them into a choerent whole.
