Oh, wow. Sorry to hear that, Marae, but I'm glad everyone's OK. I've seen what storms can do to trees where I live.
Just a little FYI anecdote: I had planned on writing out Cannax for a long time, but somehow always managed to bring her back. (You know you've been doing this too long when you get THAT attached to your characters!) I always pictured her as some kind of warrior queen, but only because I wanted a scene in which she shows TOOO her Personal Privy, and he refers to it as the Royal Wee. Okay, so the pun didn't make it into the story. I also liked the idea of Yeesha taking her under Her wing (so to speak), but I have no idea what's going to happen there.
I'd also like to say that I thought this project (for lack of a better word) was supposed to be collaborative, but it's getting more and more difficult. When the Main Story stalls, that's when I wander off on my own (mis)adventures. But it's not just enough to complain about a lack of cohesion. We really need to discuss this. Find solutions.
