1. This is a first time fic, set very early in Vlad's career in the business end of The Jhereg. Vlad and Kragar are both still working for Nielar. This story is told from Loiosh's POV.
2. As in the books, all psionic conversation will be in italics. In this instance, that means when Vlad (who is a witch) talks to Loiosh (who is his familiar) the conversation (which takes place only in their heads) will be in italics.
3. Written for the DragaeraVerse Ficathon. I was writing for cawti, and her requests were simple:
I prefer early Vlad, anything but non-con and chan. I'm good with violence, I'm okay with slash or het or femme or gen. Um...Loiosh is my favorite character, if that helps. Oh, and please no Cawti-bashing. Just because.
4. DragaeraVerse is a series of novels by a wonderful writer named Steven Brust, who is my favorite fantasy writer, ever. DragaeraVerse is a marvelous world of adventure, swords, witches and their familiars, sorcerers and their staffs, floating castles, an underworld populated with the normal amount of bad guys and even assassins that can grow a conscience when prompted just right. You should be able to follow along fairly well without it, but I've made an intro of sorts under the lj cut. So if you want to know before-hand exactly who the narrator of this tale is, click here:
