Sometimes it makes writing much easier when the characters become so real that they take on a life of their own...and sometimes it can be a pain in the butt. Especially when they all gang up on you.
Avon is really starting to complain that he never has any fun. Argus flatly refuses to be shot again, at least for the next few stories. Cally wants to spend a story where she doesn't have to constantly worry about Avon. Vila thinks that a story where he doesn't have to be scared would be very nice. And Reya does not think it was funny that I made Argus sleep in the gym. Apparently everyone's a critic.
Sooo...for the couple of people who are interested, I am considering postponing the Perceptions story arc and writing a much lighter story next. That means that it will not be like the Sevisia story where only the first third was light. Maybe a more holiday-oriented one as we are approaching the season.
Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome.
Since this is not a planned story, that means that I don't have any ideas at the moment other than a very vague one that sort of combines Christmas (though it will not be a Christmas story per se) and Halloween. And on that note, you can see why I am asking for suggestions. Without help, this can rapidly deteriorating into something not very light.
