Thanks guys! I’ll fix Pennington’s “intro.” You’re not the only ones to find it jarring – thanks for pointing it out!
@Jessica: The answer to your question is yes. Calder’s role and the story as a whole are no longer what they seem. It was the best I could do to encompass everything. Any suggestions for a less-vague way to say it?
@lyr: I was trying to follow Janet Reid’s 3-sentence paragraph rule as closely as I could, which is why that sentence is it’s own paragraph. And I’ll get to your query during my lunch break!
