Just because mild-mannered suburban mom Riva Konneva was a warrior woman from an alternate reality didn't mean she could just slash and hach her way through parent-teacher meetings. Riva had come to our world--the Planet of the Paper-Pushers--to give her daughter an education, and now she was going to have to learn to fight with paper. On the other hand, when old enemies arrived out of nowhere, all the paper in the world would not prevent Riva from protecting her child.
