An interplanetary smuggler reviews rest stops and evades the Undying Priesthood.

This is a quick, fun story framed as a series of blog posts about various rest stops before becoming the story of a doomed smuggling run that ends with the narrator as the de-facto parent of an unexpectedly hatched bird-dragon on the lam from the authorities. There’s just enough suggestion of the larger universe in which the story is set to make it fun, and the narrator’s voice is a kick.
