I tell you how much I like this? There is satire, menace, allegory, myth and fable, also some tight writing anyone would be proud to have written. It takes genuine talent to get all that stuff in a piece of writing without bashing people over the...

you could actually start from "The sun blazed". All the expository back story is a dense amount of telling about the characters. You could show a little all the way through.

When I was first posting on ABCTales (I think) BJD was around too. I know he was when I was an editor. He must have gone away for a while. Any comments, though very insightful and worth following, were sometimes really, well, not fluffy. I know...
