Ok, this is much more in keeping with my experience. Thanks for that,
I thought I was going crazy!

Ok, I put ultimate trust on both of our public keys. Do I need to do
the same for the private ones? If so, it's not entirely obvious how to
do so, because the hex doesn't show up when I --list-keys, is there
some additional option I need?

The bad news: it still says my passphrase is wrong! Which increasingly
leads me to believe my passphrase is wrong...

I will try removing it first.
