pronounced flicker-dee. i really like how it turned out. it's got a genuine climax, a major revelation, and a nice denouement portending a future.
the ending though entails revising some earlier notions. i love when that happens. i have to go back and do some major rewriting. i always say i'm going to do that, but usually don't. this time i made it so i sort of have to, otherwise it won't really make sense.
as usual, i started with just enough to go on, and let it develop the way that it would, and it did, changing completely in the middle with the character Merry, originally a minor one who took on, suddenly, a major role. writing is fun whenever it is.
