Story Notes:

Contains references to corporal and capital punishment and a rather medieval law code that may be upsetting to some readers.

Many thanks to Elleth and Dawn for their proof- and betareading patience on the first chapters! I also owe a huge debt of gratitude to Himring and Whitewave for their unflagging loyalty and encouragement.
