Archie knows that this is Wolfe being polite. This is Wolfe bowing to circumstance.

Nero Wolfe--so psyched! One of the things that's so cool about Ner Wolfe is that, like comics, the series goes on for decades without the characters changing. So you have your choice of what time period to set a story. This year, interestingly, there were 3 Nero Wolfe fics that took place during WWII. I admit, mine was my favorite.:) But it was great reading this fic in context. In Black Market Blues a restless Archie goes undercover to catch some black market thugs. He's restless because Nero has pulled strings to make sure he never goes to the front.

In my story, Nero has tried and failed to pull the same strings. Archie is sent to the front, but carries Wolfe with him.

So yeah, I'm pretty pleased with my Yuletide!
