    Summary

    I rode to the castle, thinking to ask for directions to put me on my way and hoping for an invitation to dine with the lord and spend the night, for the day was very cold. Perhaps it was my hopeful thoughts of mead and hot meat that distracted me, or perhaps it was something else. But I had dismounted before I realized that there was something strange about the place, and was almost at the doors before I knew what it was.

    There was nothing else in sight. No other homes, no fields, no orchards. Nothing but the castle, rising from the mud like a great white tooth.

    Lovely blend of pastiche documentary and Topaz diary pov, the latter with with gloriously haphazard spelling.

    Better than canon on the, you know, actual RAF.

    A fabulous Bertie narration and some very enjoyable reversals.
