Well Wouldn't You Know It...
I got another bloody idea for the bloody Scarlet Pimpernel story outline. Something completely different from the one I was working on. Something ... slashy. :-D
Well that's all right. The outline I was working on didn't seem suited to the Scarlet Pimpernel type idea. Ner Jivan was acting more like a cop or official and less like a layabout noble. And the idea of a half werewolf running around and getting into duels and saving other werewolves didn't quite work out. Oh, I still like the idea of him being a half werewolf and secretly changing into a werewolf to protect the werewolves he is supposed to be "keeping in line," even as he tries to stop the werewolf gangs from harming people. But he seemed to get closer and closer to Jessup, and Mara (the werewolf he once loved, and still loved, etc.) seemed to belong to a different story. This one, that is, not the Pimpernel one.
I got an idea while watching an episode of "Passions" the other day, and it stuck to me like those little flat aliens in that classic episode of "Star Trek" that adhered to people. I just hope it doesn't drive me mad. ;-)
