It's happening. I am having a professional disagreement with my own muse about Termion. She wants things to go one way. I'm not sure. I need help!
Here's what Muse wants.
Rogue Termions will somehow capture Bankar (whose a Termion with brains....) Jinna will be taunted (in her head) and willw ant to go rescue him.
She can't. She'll be prevented by other Termions. She'll ask why.
She'll go to the count. She'll have a go at him, and ask why she has to let her friend die (and get a step-by-step commentary in her head while the deed is being done).
She'll ask why she has to trust him (cos he asks her too). Goes off on one.
He reveals he's the one her mother said she could always trust.
I don't want it to be Bankar. It doesn't make sense. I'm wondering whether it should be her parents, cos then there'll be some intrigue and she might be allowed to go rescue them. I don't know.
Or....*light bulb moment* rogues drop hints that they have someone jinna'll like. Jinna will disbelieve them at first. But then, after all her treatment, she finally gets invited to see the count. Still probably has a go at him - why they've done this to her, have the trust convo, he releases the whole thing why Jinna is special. She'll have some tough choices to make, and life'll be interesting for quite a few chapters. Eventually, she'll find the rogue group. *Another light bulb moment* The leader of the rogues and the ones who are against the Termions is.....I'm not saying :)
Sigh. Need to think about this some more. At least I'm gaming today and tomorrow so muse can continue the professional disagreement while I'm killing things.
