I'm almost done typing up the counter tenor story. However, I stopped my progress on that when I decided to try expanding the story as it already existed. (Expanding the story before I'm actually done typing it, oh my!) I made an extra copy of the story just in case I decided my ideas sucked. In this version, Moonstone makes it to the castle a couple of days earlier but is wounded and exhausted (both from the trip and from battling a creature), so he passes out and has to rest for days. This gives him and Brodin time to get to know each other better.
I also had a dream about Gorok and Wulf! Gorok was trying to fight some giant creature, like a dinosaur except that it ran really quickly. Meanwhile, he didn't realize that Whitmore the librarian could have turned the giant creature into a chicken with one teensy spell! Hee hee!
