We're skipping the third part of ILC, because it was written by a
illiterate hack.


The fourth installment-- Martin's second-- sets up the general plot
device of Pulls-Paper-Out-of-Hats Lad choosing the new leader.
Amusingly, it also subverts it, as the very first leader chosen--
Coward Lad-- refuses the job.  Captain Continuity, acting out of a
higher sense of duty, agrees to take on the role-- perfectly in
keeping with the rather stiff and typically heroic characterization
we've seen over the years.

This particular vignette also sets up the idea-- a recurring thread
especially in Martin's ILC stories-- that no one really wants the
job.  This makes for the usual LNH-style shenanigans.
