So, today as I was posting the latest chapter of P+FD, I realized that I've been talking about events that haven't really been posted. I apologize for that.
Today I updated with a chapter that's basically a conversation between the hiwau and Chirikai-Kouji. I called the chapter "The Subtext," and snorted because almost every chapter in P+FD could be called that. In fact, that could be the novel's tagline: The Princess and the Fox Demon: An Overlong Tale of Subtext.
And then I remembered what Robert Downy Jr. said about subtext, and I snorted again because it sort of fits with today's chapter. Please don't google that if you don't get it. Seriously. It might be a spoiler.
Now I'll present some pictures of foxes taken by other people on the Internet:
|As fox demons age, they gradually turn white. Chirikai's dad is pretty freaking old. |
|I imagine Chirikai's mother being much younger than her husband, maybe more like this kitakitsune. Whatever the English name for that is...|
|Hey, Chirikai. |
|North American red fox. I imagine different breeds throughout the islands and they can tell each other apart. |
|Chirikai has no siblings, in case you were wondering. Man, look at that mama fox's face. She is so done. She's like, 'I'm never having babies again. This sucks.' |
And on that note, I'll get back to writing...
