Minor tweaks: in one version, Gravedust and Frigg were looking straight ahead instead of glancing at each other.

Also, I think the notes were more heart-shaped in one version? I have a note from Phil saying “Go back to the homonotes.” I’m gonna say, though, I think it worked out better like this.

Phil also said “I’m stunned that the addition of an open field of wildflowers made it LESS GAY hahaahah.” Some will still insist there’s subtext, others that there’s none: I think it’s healthier to live with a little ambiguity. The seeds of close male friendship (even and maybe especially between old rivals) should be freely expressed with neither a nervous “Um, NO HOMO!” nor an oversexualized “YAY FOR THE GAY” to complicate the picture.
