Grail is a second draft, and much much better than the first bad draft. It still needs a third draft, but that will just be a matter of going through and setting up all the stuff I just pulled out of my cloaca at the end here.

But hey, it's a manuscipt of about 95,000 words, which I expect to get another 5K into on the next pass, and it is entirely devoid of scenes that say [put swordfight here].
