You know, I have to say that despite the challenges, I am really enjoying writing about Cody/Dakota. I notice little things here and there while I write, that either Cody does, or Guerin does, that speaks so much, without being direct. Dakota has made an appearance, but for the most part, it’s generally only around Cody right now. I think as her stress level bumps up, that Dakota will come out more. It’s an interesting experience to write a female alchemist Jekyll/Hyde-style novel. I am really enjoying it. Cody’s alchemist bits haven’t really shown except for getting her onto the ship, but who knows. She just may have to express them soon enough. So far she is on the ship, and stuck with Guerin. So why wouldn’t she employ a few extraordinary talents. Who knows what she will do next. I only figure out the bare bones, they do the rest.
