This series rewrites the end of season 9 and then branches off in its
own direction. Each part is meant as a stand-alone piece, without any
cliff-hangers between parts. There's no guarantee, however, how often
parts will be posted or how soon the series will be finished. So, if
that qualifies as a WIP (work in progress) to you, read at your own risk.

Since it is taking me so long to finish and post this series, I have also
added a page with a detailed summary of each previous part to help refresh
your memory on the story so far:

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream . . .

~ A Midsummer Night's Dream
(Act 5, Scene 1)
