After today's writing session, I had to put in one more Dear Character, I'm Sorry:
Dear Rafe, Embery, and Dinara,
I'M SORRY. This trip you're about to go on will be HORRIBLY AWKWARD for AWHILE. But you have to do it! THE FATE OF THE WORLD RESTS ON THE SHOULDERS OF THREE 16-YEAR OLDS!!
If you make it through without killing each other, I just might let at least two of you have a tasteful love scene (if you know what I mean). So keep that in the backs of your heads.
