Logged in to rescue mode, ran fsck on the offending partition (my home, no less) it fixed the errors, and now it boots!!! My only complaint was that I spent an entire sick day trying to fix this rather than working, and it was a straightforward solution. Positive is that now I know how to scour the journal a bit better and fix this if it ever pops up again.
I'm wondering, is there any way to determine what caused this?
Thanks Emerson for your patience.
