Summary: Things Fall Apart
Notes: We have finally left the mire that was March 2007 for April, and are very close to the end of the season.
On that note, the first section I wrote in like one sitting a week ago, and I've been slaving on the second half for the last week. I'm not even sure I like it any more, or if it makes sense, or if I'm overreaching my minor writing abilities. But thoughts, comments, would be appreciated, for my own sake of mind if nothing else.
1) This is about three weeks since part 4, almost a month since Rodney installed the first device and four months since the first. 2) Athanasia Aquilidea is the older sister of Beatrix Aquilidea Nebriae Tribunus, Janus' mother in this series. It's not really important, but there was no real place to point this out in the fic and mostly results because it's hard to think up ancient-sounding last names en masse.
