    Bookmark Notes:

    The new head of the Institution stops by for tea. Lady Amier is short, round and smiles like she knows all the answers and will kill you if she thinks you know them too. She brings the greetings of the new Democratically Elected Council and their gratitude for saving the world and removing the vile dictatorship of the monarchy, etc etc.

    No one is quite sure who elected the Democratically Elected Council, but their insistence on the name suggests someone must have had a say. Lady Amier would like them to know that the council very much appreciates their decision to stay away from politics and stresses heavily that it would be for everyone’s benefit for this arrangement to continue. The world needs stable governance, not heroes.

    They could object. Ballister plotted a thousand ways to become king before he gained the goodwill of the common people, and now his nemesis walks with a limp and has to turn his head to look left there would be no one to stop him.

    But he doesn’t. He says a polite goodbye at the door then returns to the sofa and they watch a documentary on nature, and change the channel when it starts talking about sharks.

    They are not forgotten, but they are glossed over. The ‘unfortunate incident’ that claimed half the city is something to be ‘put behind us’ as we ‘enter a new period of peace and prosperity.’
