Sleight of Hand--a Damsels in Distress story

I've uploaded the first chapter of Sleight of Hand and as soon as it posts, I'll cue up the remaining six chapters. They'll post every other day. It's the first time I've ever posted in someone else's established universe. Here's hoping!

If you are unfamiliar with the Damsels in Distress universe, created by Lazlo Zalezac, I highly recommend reading at least his first story in that universe before reading SoH: The Portal: Doorway to Adventure. Lazlo outlines the basics that are expanded in the other stories he wrote in that universe. The rules of the universe were documented by Ernest Bywater in Damsels in Distress Rules.

I had a lot of fun with this little story and tried to be as faithful to the rules and to the spirit that Lazlo established in the beginning. If people like it, I have a couple more stories featuring Hero Lincoln in mind.

I have to point out that if Old Man With a Pen had not started writing his crossover series between DiD and the Wendy's Worlds Universe, I would probably never have discovered DiD. For that, as well as the good story he's writing, I thank him!
