Today I was planning on putting up a sticky that I wrote in Key West last week – which is why I didn’t get a sticky up last weekend – but as it turns out Key West is much too relaxing to write anything, even stickies. Instead I bring you a sticky I wrote at work the week before I left on my vacation.
As you know from one of last week’s stickies, Kindra needs something more to do than just walk around Fie Eoin after her sister leaves. I sent her to Fie Ronna for pants, since Kaye stole a pair of hers, and they only have about two pairs of each clothing item to begin with. After all, how many pairs of clothes do you need in a tribal society? Especially when you are a warrior. I think a pair to get bloody and a pair to wear while you clean the bloodied ones is enough. But if you have just been in a battle, and your sister steals your clean pair, then you need another pair of pants. But who do you get pants from if you spend all of your time fighting and training and hunting? Well, in Fie Eoin’s case, you get them from Fie Ronna. And if you are an Odion, you get them from the chief of Fie Ronna, or in this case his wife. It took me a while to decide on this – I kept wanting the person to be Kindra’s aunt, but as it turns out Kindra’s aunt doesn’t live in Fie Ronna. I’m still not even sure she has an aunt. That will probably be argued on another sticky.
I also like the name Abigail too much, and have named a key (very similar) character in two stories Abigail. In Phooka Tales they mostly call her Abby, but I still would rather change it in Fie Eoin to something else. Anyone have a suggestion for a name?
