Well how about them apples?
KAT AND MOUSE got a listing on TVTropes, under "Ronin."
Scroll down the list of examples and you'll find the Duo between Age of Empires 3 and The Water Phoenix King.
Add that to the serial's inclusion in SF Signal's Free Fiction Listings, and we're set to take over genre media!!!1!11!!
All we need are mentions from Suvudu, io9, and John Scalzi, and we will rule the world!
