Day/Theme: Feb. 16 - "Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss"
Series: Woxin changdan/The Great Revival
Character/Pairing: Gou Jian, Fan Li, Wen Zhong
Spoilers: end of series
Title from Stesichorus' Palinode for Helen, only the first three lines of which survive in Plato's dialogue the Phaedrus (/pedantry.) If the classics majors here remember that one, they'll know what the gimmick is in this one; if not, then I may hope not. Am not sanguine. This was a lovely head story that faded and died in the unforgiving light of MS Word.
Also hope I have the right general left alive at series' end.
'You never went in the benched ships'
