Another Shadows of the Apt fic (Happy Thanksgiving!)

Making Friends in Helleron [gen; 5400 wds]
Winning friends and influencing people, Stenwold style. Set before the attack on Myna, so about 20 years before the present day of the books; no spoilers.

I CAN QUIT ANYTIME I WANT, I SWEAR

So this started out as completely self-indulgent h/c. I had run across this thread on little_details, on people being suspended by their hands/wrists while being tortured and the physical effects of that, and then I caught myself thinking, "You know, I bet Stenwold pissed off a lot of people back in his firebrand agitator days" ... and then a few thousand words later, there was an actual plot.

And also self-indulgent h/c.

This one is set pre-canon and can be read with no knowledge of the books at all, beyond the general premise.
