I absolutely love this story. I've read it a few times and it enthralls me more with each telling. Seriously! I would love to have read more. Dinky's character as a type of Jesse Pinkman, OP? Spot on! I agree.
Dinky! I actually met him ... well, somewhere else..., anyhoo, always liked the character so finding him here after the fact was very cool, and just allowed me to enjoy the previous work that much more
