I wrote the continuation of the breakfast scene during a Word War on Friday night. Still, it didn't really catch fire. Gorok talked with the other mages. They were trying to figure out who infested Sovil with the worms. There were some good lines -- even though I forgot Vargal was sitting there less than halfway through the scene. :) Even after I gave Vargal some of Danrig's lines, it didn't look right. Then, in the chat at Forward Motion, someone mentioned action. I decided Gorok didn't need to become Watson to Wulf's Sherlock Holmes. Then I had an image of a mage trying to take Koura through magic, either because he's being cruel or as a prank. So now, Gorok hears mewing, and when he turns around, Koura is floating in the air. He starts to follow her, though Adiran tells him not to worry because it's just a prank. Gorok isn't so sure.

I got an idea for what happens next. OK, it was a prank, but something goes wrong. The mage who tried to "catnap" Koura gets bitten. (Duh!) Then he either strikes out at her or at Gorok, and Gorok hits him. After that, the mage challenges him to some kind of duel. Maybe I can use Robert's idea where the fight doesn't go as the mage plan, Gorok starts to get the upper hand, so the mage forgets himself and uses an attack spell on Gorok, the mage gets orbed. Later, when Gorok starts smashing orbs, he can rescue the now chagrined mage. Interesting reflection of what almost happened to Sovil. This has such nice potential I might have to go back and give this mage a couple of snarky cameos before his big scene -- but that can wait until later. For now, kitty kidnapping and a duel of magic versus brawn (not to mention Gorok's wits and intelligence).

This should be fun to write. :)

And eventually, tragedy will have to strike. Jupe will try to steal an artifact or use it to escape or something, and he will get orbed. That will be sad. Even the guards will be upset, but they can do nothing. (And what if one of the guards is Jupe's sister in disguise? That could be interesting, especially if Gorok develops a crush...)
