DWJ told me that it was originally darker, and the Ogre died, I think at
the Swords of the Dens Drac lads.

DWJ's then-editor wrote a new ending for it, which I never read, but
which DWJ told me included "fluffy pink footballs", and this was clearly
impossible to allow, so she altered it herself rather than have it
altered at her.
