What next?  
In a couple of weeks, NaNoWriMo will be starting, and I'll use the Journal to keep my pace up. I think I'll write about Ra'd's assignment to Embassy while Ebsa and Paer were off playing with bugs and R.O.U.S.

Or maybe not, in as much as I haven't thought up "what goes wrong" yet. I need to seriously challenge Ra'd.

In the mean time, I've got two weeks open for snippetting _something_.

Something he can't shoot? Like dealing with Nighthawk's family without anyone getting killed?

Ra'd was raised by the Prophets. The friends of the Old Gods, all from the same culture. Ra'd is going to feel like he's come home. And he's going to have to sort out his loyalties, Nighthawk's loyalties . . . But there ought to be _something_ going on while he sorts out his various issues.

I have an inkling of an idea--a traitor inside the Embassy who sees Ra'd's arrival as a way to offload blame for leaks, perhaps. Or worse, an honest head of Intel, who truly does believe Ra'd is the leak.

And I think I just figured out what to snippet. I'd given up on beating it into shape, but perhaps I need to.

I was thinking of the ones who drove Nighthawk to leave home, actually.

Arbolian spies?

I think by now they've had a revolt. Another story I need to finish . . .

Well, there's the old Warrior Laws on the books, or are those off yet? There are presumably relatives of a couple statuified idiots (or are the idiots loose?).

A story I'd like to see sometime is what happened with the Ash Mages after they moved.

One work in progress involves Ra'd, Paer and Ebsa's senior year, with the statues unbubbled and ready for revenge.

The Ash Mages . . . were you here when I snippetted the bit about the "spider spell" the Arbolian god dumped on them? They cut off contact after that, but some of the mages from Art's Museum may have joined them.
