OK Kam,
if it was a bicycle - it would be a racer and he would be riding it Lance Armstrong style, hard and uncompromising without sparing himself.

But unlike Kam, I think a vintage Ford Mustang, fast, stylish and understated.

I don't know, judging by the fun Arithon had commandeering Eldir's racing chariots, Blue may be right about the muscle car. I think he likes horsepower. I can see the vintage Mustang, or maybe a Stingray... ooh, the hotness.

Maybe an old 70s pick-up or Bronco, when he's incognito.

Whatever Lysaer drove, it would be chauferred, and bullet proof. With police escorts at all time.

What about motorcycles? I could totally see Arithon on a black motorcycle. :-D

Hmmm, I think with Arithon it's all a matter of what vehicles YOU like, because I can imagine Arithon behind the wheel of a sleek Japanese sports car, black naturally...
But like Hitler commissioned Volkswagen to make his car, I think Lysaer would do the same. But it would have to be one similar to the Pope's car, with a lovely little bulletproof glass viewing area. s/1175/1

if you don't know the one I'm talking about. Its the top two :-)

Full StopÉnext chapter

   By Janny Wurts on Friday, January 20, 2006 - 09:27 am: Edit Post

Next Chapter - 6 solid pages in, the scene's set. I've got a shift in location vantage to accomplish, today.

6 pages!!! Did you think rolls last forever? (grin) Sometimes the pause to set the scene, precisely, for the next kick off takes a bit of refining thought....also....

Authors with teeth need dentists, occasionally, and we had a nice surprise visit from my sister. The livingroom, meantime, is getting a paint job....while in the art studio, late evenings, there's a drawing being transferred for painting, and during phone calls or waits for husband - a sketch in the Paravia book....not mentioning, I got snagged into some backhistory stuff, but onto that later...

Stormed Fortress! Roll where was that whacked ball headed?

now where was that whacked ball headed?

Hopefully for a hole in one! :-O

Official page count 543, and time for a brain break....halfway there on this subchapter, which will finish with 8's one liners. Could nail it all for this chapter set by the end of the weekend. Maybe...just maybe.

Status: staring at the one liners on manuscript page 550!!

If they happen, it'll mean into chapter 9 tomorrow.

-- diving back in.

Good thoughts, suspense, baited breath, patience.

Good luck! I'm waiting with baited breath on this one...

Rollin, rollin, rollin... :-)

You're a train, you're a train, you're a chokachoo train! Janny!

553, and messing with adjustments before primary test read. 9's on the think burner...

This one will crack a few eyes open...

   By Hunter on Tuesday, January 24, 2006 - 10:01 pm: Edit Post

and a few heads? :-)

That's the S'Brydion's job! :D

   By Janny Wurts on Wednesday, January 25, 2006 - 07:37 pm: Edit Post

8's fussed into shape for draft.

9 kicks off tomorrow....

ah, well, I confess, we played hookey today and got to visit a Major private art collection in Tampa. Worth it too! Has both of us frothing to play in the paints.

Tomorrow - methinks the scene opens in Dame Dawr's carriage, or someplace thereabouts...enter a sequence of fast, furious and wickedly personal Repercussions...gonna mull that one over a drawing, I think.

   By Blue on Thursday, January 26, 2006 - 12:39 pm: Edit Post

WOOHOO! Dawr is SO cool!

I like how she was able to keep up with our green eyed boy. Had she decided to mother him, I think Arithon would have truly met his match. :-O I also wonder how Morriel/Selidie would fare matched up against the lovely s'Brydion matriarch.

   By Walt on Thursday, January 26, 2006 - 01:13 pm: Edit Post

I'm not sure what would happen in that match-up, but for the Morriel/Selidie better pray to Ath that there aren't any reasonably sharp objects within reach of the resourceful Dame Dawr! Then again, Dawr would be just as likely to whallop M/S round about the ears just for the pleasure of stinging the Korriani Prime to abject humiliation. My apologies to the venerable Dame: no weapons would be needed other than her own two hands.

   By Blue on Thursday, January 26, 2006 - 10:38 pm: Edit Post

Or that razor sharp tongue, don't forget, Walt! She can keep Bransian, Keldmar, Parrien and Mearn in line. I don't think Morriel/Selidie would stand a chance!

I love it when fans *do* the "A v. B match" and the popular character wins ;-)

Morriel presumably would have little trouble with Dawr ;-) Even Arithon has had problems with Morriel and he has been lucky but innovative so far...

I reread a little of COTM last night. The rathain jewels could potentially render Ariton's gifts "unmanageable". So can Arithon cause problems since he does not have some of the restrictions that the F7 have? Or is that unmanageable by himself? Is he heading for another fall? When(!) he accepts crownship presumably he'll receive the jewels. Would Davien expose him to this risk?

I get the feeling that SF wll resolve some short term action things (S'brydian,Koriani) but the larger issues (wraiths,paravians) will have to wait for arcs 4 and 5... So whilst we may enjoy another rollercoaster ride, there is still a fair way to go :-)

I do hope the s'Brydians take Arithon's advice at east in part...seems too risky for them to stay put...they are master strategists and they're not stupid but perhaps stubborn...
