before and after

Poking around at a story that takes place in the same world as another. Was vaguely thinking that the heroine of the other might appear to give some moral support to the heroine of this one.

Then it dawned on me that this one came earlier. Much earlier. When superpowers were new to the world. . . .

I forget what triggered the thought originally, but now it explains a great deal of why the heroine slips through cracks in places. No one knows enough to catch her. Hmmm -- there shall be one reason why they want to catch her, but not the three that have occurred in the other story.

And she may show up in the other story as a revered elder.
