This is Alice's prologue for the Twin Arches event. I couldn't work out how to tie it up, so I just chopped it off at the end; if I can work out a decent way to finish it off, I'll do so. Maybe I'm just out of practice.
I also have no idea why, but my writing style changes hugely depending on the character I'm using. Alice sounds best as first-person-present, Ottakar and Clarence are better as first-person-past, other characters are third-person-past... I can't work it out.
