The response to Jeff's work is slow because it took me this long to
write a reply, and now I need to get it peer-reviewed.

In reality, it would have appeared same night, but that's reality versus
interactive fiction for you.

Now that it's been pointed out to me, I suppose propper gratitude is due
for where it is due.

No, I am not much of a song writer, but I am a bit of a Tori Amos fan.
Seeing as her music was partially responsible for the figment of my
imagination better known as Quicksilver, I figured it only appropriate
that Quicksilver was too (blame her adoptive mother for having a few old
CD's around or something).

The latter song, quoted almost in its entirety (for those of you who
don't already know) was "Mother" from Ms. Amos' _Little Earthquakes_.
As part of her background, which hasn't seen too much airing on this
list, not lately anyway, Quicksilver was taken from her parents after
some of her "abilities" began to surface. So, I figured that the song
was rather appropriate for her to have memorized.

Extra brownie points for the people who recognized the earlier musical
reference, since it isn't actually a real song, but appears in Neil
Gaiman's _Death: Time of Your Life_. And yes, I am among the group that
believes that their (Amos & Gaiman's) friendship no doubt lead to some
inspiration for the character of Foxglove. But that, as they say, is
another story.
