I felt like I was missing most things to fill in the gaps and was winging a fair bit to try and piece the story together.


When she comes of age, Damia learns that a Prime of her capabilities and temperament has no time for love. Boring as only McCaffrey can manage. She died at the age of 85, after suffering a massive stroke on 21 November Views Read Edit View history.
