NaNoWriMo, Days Three and Four

by on November 4, 2015

Jason Waterfalls, my other main viewpoint character besides Sally the Sanguine, has led several of his companions into a secret tunnel. (Cue my Avatar: The Last Airbender fans: SECRET TUNNEL! THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN! SECRET SECRET SECRET SECRET TUNNEELLLLLLL!”).  I found myself lacking for words. This resulted in a paragraph or two where, after having eaten, the characters debate what to do about the bathroom situation. Also, one of the characters is an incarnation of the Sugar Plum Fairy named Darlene Dove, who magically provides pizza for everyone. This resulted in the following exchange.

“What strange meal is this?” Jason Waterfalls demanded.

“Seriously, you guys don’t have pizza?” Darlene asked. “Didn’t someone bring it in from a modern story or whatever?”

“Perhaps in the back-alleys of Mondegreen city,” Jason said stuffily. “In Charmingfell, our meals are prepared by kitchen-elves, who all work very hard-”

“Kitchen elves?” Darlene said suspiciously. She had read some literature about the poor treatment of magical creatures in the service industry.

“And they are all paid appropriate wages, and receive several weeks of vacation per year, plus holidays!” Jason said, anticipating her objections. “They’re even organized in a proper guild!”

“Oh. Well. In that case…” Darlene paused. “Well, fine, then. So, anyway, this is pizza. It’s, like, super delish.”

Take that, J.K.
