Rey's Career and Stuff )

Let's just say that Rey's path forward is going to get rocky.

YMICB Chapter 7 is up. Whew. It's about 6000 almost 7000 words long. WHY. *dead*

Actually I'm considering breaking it into 2 chunks now, to make the narrative 'feel' less clunky, but it kinda feels like it'd be a faux pas, because I already posted it. :P

I think there's a pacing issue. BUT:

I have a note about Rey's character arc: She's not going to move in with Luke in chapter 8. In fact, she's going to get her own bed, her own furniture, and get her place squared away. And work on that book collection.

...Not that she won't be over there a lot. And vice versa. But I think it's important for her to do that, to forge her own peace, and be happy in her own skin.

Cut for thoughts on stuff that might actually happen )

But she does need to heal up a bit...And in the meantime, let the alarm clock battles BEGIN!

I had another brainwave today.

lightpoint: portrait of sidious with color adjustment (sidious2)
Darth Sidious is a tough character to work with. In my opinion, the worst thing you can do with him is make him too nice... Well, genuinely nice. If he's good to anyone, there needs to be a reason. 'Counting Days' is kind of a strange fic, in that it's 100% Rey's POV, so she only sees what he wants her to see...at first. She figures out that her new friend isn't quite what he appears to be, but by the time she realizes what's up, he's a part of her life.

They do, however, become a team, of sorts. There are always two, after all...

Here's some notes on Sidious. Some of it is my comments-section brainstorming.

Notes on Sidious )

So I've been brainstorming Counting Days a lot. It's going to be longer and a lot more'granular' than Edge of Night because Rey's POV is 1. Rather methodical in nature - she has an 'Engineer Brain' 2. I have to pull off a realistic alignment shift and 3. Show some of the factors that influenced her decisions in Edge of Night.

Here's a sort-of rough notes list on Rey, some of which happened in the comments section of both fics in the series...Brainstorming, yo!!
