A week or so ago, I wrote about being stuck with my next story until the right characters arrived to tell it to me. Well, they’re here. I don’t know their names yet, and I don’t know the rest of the people around them yet, but I know exactly what they look like, and how they move, and how they sound, and why they love each other even though they don’t like each other at all.
They’ve been at each other a lot in the last few days, and I’ve eavesdropped on all of it.
Here’s one of them, who plays a large role in the introductory chapter. I know his name: it’s Amicus. The two main characters use Amicus as a mode of nonverbal communication, since they can hardly stand to talk to each other directly any more.
Lots and lots and lots more to come…
