After the feedback on chapter 11, one thing that became clear to me was I needed a better way to bridge between the A cast and the B cast. Spending so much time away from Mizha, Zhiro, Tama, and Kali made people feel disconnected from them. On the flip side, neglecting Pakku, Una, Warren, Lu Pai, Milan, and Renar in the B cast meant that when I finally did get back to them, I ended up with a mammoth 100 page chapter.
When I heard about the vignettes that Eric Menge of Snow by Night does between chapters, I thought that would be a great compromise. This way we can stay in touch with the other cast members, but in a more bite-sized way. Plus, it was a great challenge to me as a writer to make a story that was short and compact. This vignette is 11 pages long, focusing on an important moment in time for Una as she continues to wrestle with her hard-learned convictions about life and her desire to be accepted for who she is. I hope you enjoy it!
