1. Chapter 1 [Reviews - 11] (1420 words)
This is, finally, the first installment in my "Support Stacie" auction fic, as requested by isabelle; she asked for a "Jack's Clipboard" installment in which Our Heroes had to undergo an examination by some official/counsellor/etc. to determine their readiness for marriage.
It was a marvellous bunny, and the promised 1,000 word fic ballooned into something that's 7,000+ words and still growing slightly as I finish off the final installment. isabelle has been very kind in allowing me to run over deadline without complaint, so I hope the increased volume will help to pay back her generosity with both writing time and donation money.
As this is far too long to be a "Clipboard" installment, it's going up as a chaptered fic of its own -- expect approx. three chapters. :)

I decided to break this down into chapters covering each testing phase individually, since that makes for nice, clean starting and stopping points. It will also let me keep to a more regular posting schedule. So, two more chapters after this one. :)

. . . And the results! :D
Thanks again to isabelle, for donating in my name to the "Support Stacie" auction, giving me this wonderful bunny to play with and generously allowing me to post it around as I see fit. The promised B&W Celtic knotwork illustration is appended to the end of this chapter, too. People are free to play "spot the error"; it's been rather a while since I did anything much with knotwork (or a crowquill nib pen) and it was an . . . interesting exercise as a result. Still, I like how it came out, overall. Might have to do more like this.
And thanks to aibhinn for beta-ing, of course! :D
