This here is a case where the forum discussion was more interesting than the actual story. I think calling it a tragedy is very accurate, Wild killed himself, I can't really believe that not one other time did a fuel canister leak over many years. So he must have know what would happen. The people on the shop were essentially dead in the social sense depending on if it needed that fuel for anything internal, though it didn't sound like it did. And I think we say that the narrator was irreparably changed by this event. In many ways that's pretty interesting, as I don't think I know of many sci-fi stories that don't end with some hint of hope or a future. Someday that gate will still be built..and things will go bad then, so yea.

Ah science vs handwavium, the eternal battle.
