I always forget that these later bits of plot sometimes only take a few paragraphs to manage, because they're not exposition or setup, but consequences.

I might just pull this off. Chapter 28 to complete the setup, Chapters 29 and 30 for the climax, Chapter 31 for the denoument.

*runs like mad to keep up with the wheel*

In other news, stillsostrange and I think this would be a good name for a band: Crushed Velvet Elephant Seal. Which will actually make sense, kind of, when this book is published. *Hopes for Bunyip cover art.*

Yes, I have gone completely nuts. This often happens around this point of the book. It's safest just to control your children and move along.
