The line about being cryptic in the opening post is going to prove prophetic.
This thing's going to be very episodic and rely on information that hasn't been (and may never be) revealed. Events might seem to happen in the wrong order, or things might not be remembered properly, but I guess that's the nature of the beast.
Some of it's going to border on stream-of-consciousness stuff, too, which I can never be bothered to edit at the time of writing. Maybe I'll go back and try to organise it later but for the moment, it just needs to be somewhere.
I know, that only makes it more cryptic.
[Edit @ 22/09/2016: I think this was an attempt to explain to myself why I was doing this whole thing]
