Second Lieutenant Simenon has fallen gravely ill, and it's up to the 6th Company's mage, Darael, to (very reluctantly) figure out what's wrong with him.
This is the third story in the A Night in Blue series.
Sorry it took me ten years to get around to writing this, dudes. I always meant to keep going after Strays, I just never thought it would take so long.
The original outline had a separate subplot from Simenon's POV that I had started writing after Strays, but I could never get it to work. It was just too heavy-handed and self-indulgent (there was an extended dream sequence, I swear to god what is wrong with my brain), but as soon as I realised I had to cut that for the story to work, it was like a dam burst. I wrote it all in a Saturday evening.
