Clearly not as potty-mouthy as I'd thought!

I love this chapter. The sheer beauty of it. "If I stop, I'm lost." Amazing. Heart-wrenching. Tanith's lowest point.

Tanith doesn't know David's surname. See? This just isn't important information! And then you work out that you need to get it into the story somehow and have to sit there and plan HOW. Or at least, I do.

I truly do hate Cal in this chapter. And he's my favourite (after Dimitri, at any rate). I CAN see his point of view here, to be fair, but he just doesn't help himself in this situation, and you can't blame Tanith for her reaction given what she's been going through. Plus, Cal clearly needed this kick up the gluteus maximus. Not to mention TANITH needed the emotional release. Skimming back through this story now, it's DEFINITELY a turning point for them both. And I truly LOVE that Cal went off to find the Lions. Even if it DID leave Tanith 'alone'. LOVELOVELOVE for this chapter. ANGST.

Author's Response: We're POLITE.

This IS one of my favourite chapters. Because beating up Tanith is one of my favourite things to do, and this is the lowest point of the whole story, this is the Ordeal in the Hero's Journey, and why on Earth am I always so cruel to my guys at Christmas time?

O.o I don't think David's surname EVER comes up. EVER. *I* don't even know it. Though logically, Tanith WOULD eventually learn it (she's a cop, she'd notice things like post through the door, places it'd be written, and she'd SEE it round his place). But I digress. It's not important!

Cal is being AWFUL in this chapter. I mean, the guy's got it pretty rough, but it doesn't justify what he does. Then at the same time, Tanith is taking a lot of her issues out on HIM. I did write this that, while Cal's worse than Tanith, nobody's GOOD in this situation. Because the shade she throws at him about his father is more about her upset than about his issues.

So much aaangst.
