* LeonineContract: Ironjay to the Afloats. The Afloats are outcasts and banned making any transactions--such as for thought-modifiers, mind-programs, hallucinogens, or food--with any reputable citizens of the Oecumene. Ironjay, however, is not reputable, and is quite willing to deal with them, for a price.

* BrokenAesop: An in-universe example with Wheel-of-Life's (?) ecoperformance criticizing Phaethon. She imagines that [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption overcompetition between linked systems will lead to mass extinction]], and so it does...as long as she is directly controlling the action. After the performance is over and the grove has time to recover, the trees re-adapt to one another and cooperate without any outside interference.
