Galeni's most enduring memory of writing his thesis was his advisor telling him: if you're going to call the Vor that, you have to use better euphemisms.
That happened a lot.
Galeni would get his drafts and revisions back with comments in the margins and notes placed here and there: you need a different source here and the occasional embarrassing, this translation is wrong: you need to use H. Vorthys and not K. Vorkalloner; it doesn't say what you think it says. After a heated argument once, another professor came in, read through the offending section, and said flatly, "you're a Komarran. Are you trying to get yourself killed?"
Eventually they arrived at a cease-fire and cut it in half. The historical reinterpretation, the really politically dangerous bit, was separated out into a separate paper. The military analysis stayed in his thesis and the really interesting historical bits fell, one by one, by the wayside.
It ends up being published a week after the Imperial wedding. It's supposed to get ignored in its wake, and it mostly does. Galeni figured it would, but the point was getting it finished, being able to hold it up and say: I did it.
