Tricia goes collecting, in The Soul Blade Chapter 22.
In 2009, pacing was one of my problems. The spacing of events, the need to fill in the details of the day, and showing what Team Brenna was doing while Team Tricia was out being evil didn't really help. Words were written, and that was the goal of NaNo. I find my pacing improved with By the Numbers. Of course, I had also planned that one chapter by chapter. Hmmm.
Tricia's search for a victim establishes her need for control. Despite taking orders from elsewhere, she's in charge. The search also shows what care she is taking, to explain why the police are baffled. Her choice of victim shows up in Chapter 23. It's... not pretty. But, with Tricia around, I know what is going on and what clues to feed.
Brenna's trip to the police station has two goals. One, to get her and Matt to talk to each other again at some point. That bit of subplot is still dangling and needs some resolution. Two, Brenna does have information that the police may not have. McCoy, though, needs something he can use in court. Brenna's info isn't useless; and the effort is appreciated, but try convincing a judge that something like magic exists. In the Soul Blade-verse, there's still a masquerade of sorts where the supernatural isn't widely known. Some people believe in it, others are well aware it is real, but the average person, like the real world, would consider anyone talking to unseen ghosts to be a little on the touched side.
Friday, Tricia adds to her collection, in The Soul Blade Chapter 24.
Also Friday, over at Psycho Drive-In, War of the Worlds.
Saturday, over at The Seventh Sanctum, to be determined.
