Story Title: A Necessary Evil (aka The One About the War)

Percentage reduction: 6%

Some words removed. Some (hopefully better) words inserted. I don't actually need to reduce its length as long as the quality is there. There will be big cuts in future chapters, however, as I remove all the long-windedness produced by the amnesia.

More of the same tomorrow, I expect.
