      Hi y’all! Just saying I probably won’t be able to post until after August 1, but if I have time I’ll try. We’re moving at the end of this week, so yeah. I think that explains it 😛

      As for what time, I think a few months afterwards will work. We need to see how The Florid Sword and Shadow Blade are getting along and such. And yeah, Artham should be healed — especially after saving the water for his brother and keeping it from himself all those years.

      If I have time, Kylie, I’ll try to type out a short synopsis later. 😉

      And Kinnan, I hope you can publish your book!

        Right. Nice, guys! I can’t wait to start. 🙂

          This is going to be fun! I agree with most of you that we shouldn’t write the actual First Well part, but write afterward.


          @wingiby-iggiby
          Even if Artham drinks the water, I feel that he would still have wings, and feathers, and claws. Otherwise, the whole story wouldn’t have worked out because the First Well could have healed all the fangs.

          I’m claiming Leeli because I can’t wait to see how she responds to being able to actually run and play with the boys and Sara after years of using a crutch.😁

          Also, just an idea, but it would be fun to bring Owen (Janner’s friend at the Library) into the story somewhere. And maybe everyone should be going to the Green Hollows for a certain wedding between a certain Guildmaster and Olimphia.😉

            @arindown,

            Sounds good to me! The only thing is that if Artham’s wings and stuff wasn’t healed, I don’t think Leeli’s leg would be. I mean, maybe it would… I don’t know! AP left so much to be decided… 🙂

              Well, I don’t think the wings etc. was what needed healing. I think his mind did.  I mean, Artham became, well, I don’t know the word.  Artham wasn’t a cloven or anything, he was just more capable with his wings, I suppose.  Like Esben in the ending of the third book.  He didn’t stay a cloven when he sang the song for those he loved. He transformed into something different.  When he was a cloven, he was all messed up and he couldn’t speak, etc.  But when he sang the song of the Ancient Stones for those he loved, he became stronger and saved his family.  So, I don’t know.  But those are just my thoughts (If they make any sense 😛 )

                    @mischievous-thwapling,

                    Yeah, but I mean if the Water took away his wings and stuff, I think it’d take away Leeli’s injury, and visa versa. Then again, I suppose the wings weren’t a physical injury, just a change. Leeli’s leg is an injury. So I guess it might be healed. IDK! 😛

                      So I’ll take votes. Who should I be?

                      • Arundelle (ex-cloven queen)
                      • Oskar N. Reteep (Appreciator of the Strange, Neat, and/or Yummy)
                      • Nia (Queen of Anneria)
                      • Owen (book-bindery guidling)
                      • Sara (I can’t remember if she’s taken or not)
                      • Someone else I can’t think of…

                      I can’t decide!! 😛

                        Yeah! I understand why AP left so much to the wind (I have no idea if that’s the correct expression) but sometimes I wish he would just reveal a tiny bit more, y’know? (Or, maybe more than a tiny bit 😛 )

                          I don’t think Sara is taken. But hmm, I think you would be great being all those characters… I need to think about this.

                            Thwapling,

                            Right? So much thought… 😛

                            There are pros and cons about leaving stuff vague like that.

                            PROS:

                            • I don’t have to live with an ending I don’t like. I can make it up.
                            • It leaves room for more to be written if he decided to write more.

                            CONS:

                            • I don’t know what happened.
                            • It’s too vague!!

                            😛

                              Ok, so I’ll just say what I think. Basically, y’all pose great thoughts for Artham’s healing. As for me, I just want him to keep his wings because I want him to still be able to fly around. But then again, I think he could be healed, but then again, not. Could he just keep the wings?

                              And oh man, who could you be? I know this is a hard question, but who would you find most interesting to play? Who would grow your writing most? These are questions I probably should have asked myself. I guess I immdiately chose Artham since he’s my fav, but all the others would be so fun! Could we each play two characters, perhaps? After everybody’s chosen a first one?

                              @kylie-wingfeather

                                I’m going to use a made-up character.

                                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Name: Elinor Aernil

                                Age: 13

                                Pet: Tracker, wolfhound puppy

                                Looks Like: Blond hair (waist long), big silvery-blue eyes, a few freckles, faint scar on her right cheek, another scar (half-circle) on her chest.

                                Personality: Kind, Playful, A wee bit shy, Can be fierce. Loves reading & writing, dancing, and riding horses. Dislikes small spaces, fangs, bullies (mostly Gregory Bunge), and pain.

                                Backstory: Was born in Anniera. When Castle Rysen was attacked, a fang killed Elinor’s family and was about to kill her when a hollish man who was visiting Anniera saved her. Elinor lived in Ban Rona with the Bronins during the nine years before the Shining Isle was restored. Is in the book-bindery guild at school. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                                So, I’m not quite sure how Elinor is going to meet the Wingfeathers since she lives in Ban Rona; maybe Janner visits the Great Library and meets her there?

                                  Ya’ll, this is going to be cool.


                                  @wingiby-iggiby
                                  My thinking is…Artham’s wings aren’t wrong, the First Well will heal things that have been hurt and wounded and are “wrong” (like Leeli’s leg). The Well would permanently clear Artham’s mind, but not take his wings, because in a way, they’re a gift from the Maker. If Esben had drank the water (after all those years) he still would have been a cloven, just a “perfect” cloven. I don’t know if that makes any sense.😄 That’s just my idea.
