Nadine and Blunderbuss are at the core of the Avian Covenant stories. There are several layers of backstory and after-story that I’ve developed. My hypothesis is that these elements will lend greater depth and verisimilitude to the core stories. We’ll see to what extent this experimentation bears fruit.
The source of this story came from a very vivid dream. The theme of that story-dream seemed to me to be exploring a balancing of power.
I hesitate to describe the dream because the story has evolved so much. Besides, I don’t want to introduce any spoiler alerts while I’m still in the developmental stage.[The above text is from the description used for the “series” tag: https://www.campbellxencross.com/series/avian-covenant-stories/. Doubling it up here for now as a placeholder. Intend to replace once I have concrete pieces to talk about.]
