mickawber11:55am: Challenge Entry--Finally
So, I signed up for this challenge months ago, and Rynne sent me the prompt, "True it is, we have seen better days" from As You Like It--which made me laugh, because I played Duke Senior once (when I was all of 23) and spoke those lines.

I started writing the following fic and just... got too depressed. The whole thing was too sad. So I put it away for a while. And then Luna came, and showed me a different direction to head in.

See if you can spot the splice point.
