	Wondering a bit what you meant by that last phrase.
	Also, if the fairies are grandchildren of Kronos, then Smoky's classical
education, and his love of the stars, would seem again to be pointing in
the opposite direction from the fate of the Drinkwaters & Co. As there is a
hierarchy of worlds/spheres here, it seems that there is a world larger
than the one in which the House is situated. Which I gather would revise
Mantis's scheme of the system of worlds....
