Well, Sister Stacia, that's just the thing about elevations - they don't 
make you a peer, they recognize what you already are; so obviously, in the 
emotional rush of that night, I believed Tarl was already a peer.

Actually, I had thought, even at the time, that Tarl was already a peer.  I 
thought his Lion predated his Laurel.  Ah, well, brain cells, like 
batteries, don't hold their charge forever.

Anyway, it was a really, seriously, awesomely cool event.

(who is still sleep deprived from this weekend, and whose feet are still 
tapping happily)
