Characters: Paine, Cast
Pairings: Hints of Paine/Nooj, but mostly gen. Unless Paine/her sword counts as a pairing.
Spoilers: Minor for Paine's backstory and other parts of the game.
Notes: Written for 30_fantasies, theme #2, "Sword", and largely inspired by a long-ago request by parron for a Paine/sword story. This one is for her, although I suspect she had something much crackier in mind when she asked for it. ;) This story has taken almost two years to write, and I stalled on it several times, but working on it for JaNoWriMo really helped shake things loose, especially the concept for the ending.
Ten short pieces about a woman and her most faithful companion.
