“As the scene around us faded a voice whispered, ‘None of this has really happened save in a thematic sense. But steal freely from it as you require.'”
In other words: Let’s pretend that chapter never happened, except when we don’t.

Am very curious how this will affect later drafts–not to mention the final book.
