Ughhh, things seemed to be going so well. And yet here I am with my two favorite characters now suffering even more tragedy.
It isn’t fair 😦
And it really isn’t going to end well… It seems that no matter how I want to write this, they dictate their own path… a short summary of what is happening. For anyone interested.
PS, this is a sub-story going on while the main plot happens. 🙂
Admiral Octav and his long time friend and bodyguard Chace were out celebrating, food and a few drinks in a bar that they had never been in before. Octav didn’t like the look of his dinner, so Chace ate it instead. Only to find out later the next day that he’d been severely poisoned with a genetically enhanced killing agent. While on his deathbed and with no emotional barrier protecting his feelings for his commanding officer Chace and Octav realize that they’ve been fighting the truth for too long. But their relationship would be very complicated. Octav is married, Admiral of the fleet and Second in command to House Niakrex. Although things are left very tense time really isn’t on their side.
At the moment. I am struggling with this. Too much conflict easily resolved. I think this one might stretch on to the next part in the series. So, will he or won’t he die?
I am however, really enjoying the moments that they’re spending together, they’re so touching. 🙂
I am hoping this weekend to get well onto the 80k mark. Wish me luck…
I think these are the moments every writer looks forward to – when you’re so invested in your characters it’s hard on you when they go through hardship. I think that just means your characters are real enough to care about, and thats a good thing, however bad it feels to be mean to them. D:
Indeed. If you can’t cry and laugh with them, then something is wrong. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
Np! It’s neat to find someone who’s going through the same sort of thought processes about writing, and characters. 🙂
So good when the characters’ lives really get to you.
Thanks, I totally agree. 🙂 Hope to see posts from you on writing too.
