Wait. *SHIV*? at PENNSIC?!

Yes...

:D T-American prisons have a very sensible preference for stairstepping people out into the world instead of dropping them off a cliff. Ideally, they want inmates to move from the standard to the privileged wing, which has some more homelike facilities. It gets easier to obtain day passes; this isn't the first trip that Shiv makes with Graham. I still have the graffiti festival to write too.
