FW 1.23-24 --Issy mourns Issy--

[last] [fweb-toc] [fweet] [finwake] [theall] [pgs]

a rare instance of authorial square brackets:
FDV: "[Silent]
566 A.D. At that time it came to pass ?that many fair maidens grieved to their minions were ravished of them by an ?ogre Europeus Pius and."
566 O.D. At that time it came to pass ?that 2 bronzelocked maidens grieved because their minion was ravished of them by an ?ogre Europeus Pius. Bloody wars in [Dublin]{Ballyaughacleeaghbally}."
"O.D." Latin for 'right eye' (not yet overdose)


stage direction?
this seems to be some kind of symmetry point between two very asymmetrical timelines: 1132,566,0,566,1132; E,△,0,⊣⊢, /[

single male, single female, zero, doubled female, doubled male?

Penguin: not indented
FW1: parentheses not square brackets, no italics
