I have tried to comment several times, but for some reason I have not been able to have it post. Hopefully this time it will work. I love the story and the growth and regression of the characters. I think that the tempo is just fine right now. As you said it is winter. They need a time to heal both physically and mentally if possible before any more big excitement occurs. Einar is not going to survive many more big events in the shape that he is in. He can barely make it through the night as it is. Thank you for writing. Your stories are intriguing and keep me coming back. I may not like some of the things that happen, but that is the way that life is too. So it is realistic in that respect.
Chris, As this story has progressed, I, for one have noticed, a need for you to take time off...Please, take all the time ~you~ need... Great Writing is already hard enough, but this writing, is so emotionally packed for us as well as for the writer... ;-)We can always refresh the screen.... to find a new Post..... What was that???? I think the Pink Bunny has found a New Drum!!!!Anon Poster above, the software requires a name, usually, that may have been your posting problem....philip
Actually it was due to trying to post through Firefox on which I have high security. This time I posted using Safari and it worked.
