From the author: The background of "All's Fair"
The website Figment held a contest for which the prompt was to write a fable dealing with 'the last battle'. My first effort was discarded partway through when I realized it wasn't a fable at all. This second effort went better. It didn't win (or even place) in the contest, but I had better luck with the website Spinetinglers.
