Summary: I’m sure they’ve had worse ideas. Maybe.

NOTE: This is a very rough draft with no editing at all (per National Novel Wiriting Month rules) and is presented for amusement value only. Think of it as a periscope into my writing process rather than a coherent story!

There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing. These snippits are also posted out of order, so please refer to the story page to figure out where it’s supposed to fit.


Town 3 – Planning the Kidnapping

“Are you sure you want to do this?”

“It’s the best option, unless you’ve come up with a plan since yesterday.”

The new little sister feels odd, she’s not used to feeling the spider in her eye. Little Sisters weight and movements are habitual at this point, the new spider is the same, but not quite. It’s sort of odd to think this might be how other folks react to the spiders. She tries not be run back in and exchange them.

“Good luck then.”


She heads out into the marketplace as if she was going to buy food. It’s hard to pretend that nothing is different, but she is pretty sure her nervousness will simply be assumed to be because she is alone. She has very little money, just enough to make sure they don’t get suspicious.

Everything feels very crowed and she keeps jumping when loud noises happen. A few people look worried for her, but she gives them displeased looks when they try to help her. She makes it most of the way into the market when she is attacked.
