Not just any death — but a spectacular one. One that will be the talk of Town for years.
I did an insane amount of brainstorming tonight in Lady Wyre’s universe. (I swear, there’s something magical about purple ink.)
All along, I’ve had several different story ideas in various stages with only a vague notion of how they connected. Amazingly, all these pieces are starting to come together. I know that after Lady Doctor Wyre, she instigates events on a Chinese-like planet that ties to Seven Crows (title will be changed).
Even more frightening–because I didn’t deliberately plan any of this–the free prequel I’m working on is tied to Deathright.
One event sets up or explains another. Awesome, right? Except…
I have one major event that sets up her prequel, Lady Wyre’s Regret. I know how she meets Lord Regret. I can hear their dialogue in my head. But her spectacular demise…leaves me scratching my head. I know the whys and wherefores, but not the details. It needs to be signficant and meaningful. Preferably tied to her House or the history I’m warping so irrevererently.
I guess I need to do a little more research.

Heh, oh, what a shame. I know you just HATE research. *snerk*

Is this a ritual suicide? A sacrifice? Murder perhaps? Or are you just going to blugeon her to death with a keyboard? 😀
