Story Notes:
This story ran in Bird Scramble for 9 issues, starting in 1996. I've tried to preserve the same feel by listing the chapters as they appeared, listing the part number plus the chapter name. When this ran on the BotPML in 1998, I posted it as one chapter per day for approximately six weeks.
