My gift had lots of weird Mithraism in it, which was very cool! A Strayed Cow.
I wrote High Days of Heroes, about Gault and Levin.
Levin's lover, Gault was killed, and Levin hoped to follow him. Artos convinced him that he could only choose a death that would be worthy of his friend, and so Levin waited. Gault waited too.
Somehow I had completely missed that someone had previously written a long Gault/Levin story and if I'd known I might have chosen another subject, or at least a different angle... but oh well!
