   The reality overlap HAD to remain until after they
got back.   If it didn't, they wouldn't have detected
it.  In which case they wouldn't have gone back to fix
it.  You have to learn to think fourth dimensionally.

    Not this arc.   Screew You Over Lad is set up for
something I have planned for over the next year or so.

   It was meant as a little bit of both.  It's why I
made the next arc a little goofy.  I wanted to make up
for all the angst.

  Actually, I don't have any plans to use Taup again
ever.  If anyone else wants to they can go ahead.
