Just wanted to let you know the reason some numbers changed above is that I've made the hard decision to strip the Vicky Welf half of the story from "The Glassbreaker Goes Home". Both stories revolved around the theme of family, but I felt it would be better served (and quicker) if I just focused on King Henry's emotional family reunion instead.
No solid idea what I'm going to do with the 17k worth of Vicky material, if anything. Another novella possibly, re-purposed in the timeline to be much closer to FM7's start date (possibly during the Winter break Old Mancy party season, with the idea of the Welf's throwing a gala to debut Vicky's Eureka-themed spectromancer art + Tyson meeting the in-laws + Heinrich Welf dating woes, etc.). Or maybe even a post FM7 novella...for those that, ya know...survive ;)
Or...maybe it will just stay in lala land. Which is sad, since I quite liked how the POV was shaping up and the Moira/Vicky conversation is one of the favorite I've written since Ceinwyn/KH at the end of FM4.
But...I'm grooving with KH at the moment, in a way I haven't grooved in over a year now. Finally feel like I'm recovered, in a good mental place to focus on the massive task that is FM7, and back at the Crazy. So...instead of taking a month or two with Vicky, I'd much rather finish up FM6.75 and immediately start kicking FM7's ass.
Cuz that's some dragon-sized ass...
