    Mover. Shaker. Deal-maker and -breaker. That’s our Dmitri!

    I see him here and I wonder how hard it was for him to see Devyat finding ways around him — as she absolutely had to, when it was important. That must have pained and frustrated him no end, and he couldn’t take it out on her. How could he? He doubtless did the same thing many times growing up. The combination of anguish and pride cannot be an easy one to swallow. You may as well try downing Drano and gasoline. (Don’t try mixing them even outdoors – and don’t ask me how I know this)

    I’ll bet “placing” Halip in her new job was a great relief and delight to Dmitri, one he will cherish until he finds a new outlet, wherever and however. Which, come to think of it, is something the Galaxy needs to contemplate. This is the only being in the Galaxy who has been through the Drak-Sim and returned; he possesses transGalactic knowledge that could make the Kreebrick look like a wet firecracker.

    …which, come to think of it, I’m not sure Halip knows. Once she learns, though, her priorities are going to shift majorly.

    I better get some more popcorn.
