Pretty cool. I esp. like the quote for Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, although, not quite sure you used it.
Well, the focal point of the story seemed to be the duel at the Beginning of the Year Feast, which was certainly a merry din to hear at the Feast that was set.
Harry's Heritage might could use an Ancient Mariner quote too - something about the albatross... Hummmmmmmmmmmmmm
