Chapter 3 - The curtains of the stage swing open, and the actors begin their play.

Author's Note

Xel Vi Coronata

I was tossing around in a sleepless fatigue last night, when I suddenly understood why people might have the problem with the gag in the first part of the chapter. (See comment below, regarding 'creepy' — I'd thought someone had taken umbrage at the familial recognition joke initially.) Please do not take it that way, because I grew up in an age where 'daddy' and 'mummy' were innocent terms(as far as I know, anyway). For sanity's sake, I'm going to change it to 'dad', but the internet has some odd fetish with patriarchal figures, so there's no pleasing everyone. Also, if your first thought upon seeing 'daddy' is a pejorative one... >.<
