Hey, I'm sorry I didn't get around to reading this earlier. For some reason I didn't think it was a PPC story, until I randomly opened it last night.
This is a nice character piece showing the mindset of Falloren's culture, and how it had to be modified to fit into HQ. It makes sense that not every character who wanders in has difficulty adjusting to life in the PPC, and I like Falloren's positive outlook towards it, and her focus on continuing her work rather than complaining about any discomfort with the situation. In particular, I like the imagery of having no more road for the song to lead Falloren down, so Falloren has to make her own road to helping people in her new environment. I really relate to Falloren's self last, others first mentality, as that's very much how I feel about my zookeeper work. I like her quiet, solo free time activity, too!
