Incidentally, I've found the perfect music to write this story to. Over on Pandora, random chance popped up "Vive Le Resistance" from the Mirror's Edge: Catalyst soundtrack. That turns out to be a game published by Electronic Arts.
Anyway, that, and two other tracks, play periodically now, because I gave "Vive Le Resistance" the thumbs up--and then I looked for it on Amazon, and bought the whole album. $9.50, and it's five hours long.
I have to take the cat to the vet today, at 8, so probably I should go to bed, at least for a little while. But damn, it feels so good to be where I am now, and I don't want to stop.
