This is a long chapter and the first big turning point. The guilds are trying to recruit the top talent– but the most talented girl of all really doesn’t seem very interested in the traditional guilds. What does that have to do with dog breeding? Read on to find out!

We’re well into the meat of things– things that may not be as they seem. What’s up with that crazy mayor? Who’s killing off the Wands, and how? And what happens when a Staff tries to fly? Questions, questions…
There’s been a spike in visitors here, (not sure why, maybe just good karma, or maybe Google confused Benawrite with JKRowling.com. Yay!
Panic at the docks– churning Flow, a Wand is attacked, and suspicions fly. Back at school, tossing stones to pass the time. That guy Vix is a real jerk (he was named before the Falcons quarterback was arrested for torturing dogs, that’s just an eerie coincidence.) I’ll have fun messing with him later!
What a steal! At that price, you’re almost making money by purchasing the book!
What you can buy for 99 cents:
- 1/4 of a Vente Peppermint Mocha
- 1/9 of of viewing of Chipwrecked, the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie sequel
- 3 oz of CVS generic vaseline
- 43 Kleenexes (unused)
- 108 Kleenexes (used) (check on Ebay)
- enough fries to choke a horse at Five Guys
- a really great book!
Thanks for your support! If you’re waiting for a paper edition, do not despair– we’ll have it ready soon.
The Mayor shares one characteristic with me: when I’m frazzled, I run my hands across my scalp, and it makes me look comically big-haired. Really. My head grows four inches taller on a bad day.
Unlike the Staffs– big meat-oriented guys– Wands are narrow and pointy and focused. Makes sense to me. Get to know the Wands, then take a few steps backwards to fill in a bit of back story about how the guilds recruit young kids. Not many are chosen– children get just a moment to show off their talent, and there’s no congeniality prize.
You’ll then meet the Rings– the third and last major Guild. They’re kind of goofy. Keep in mind that all characters and names are entirely fictional. If you notice any resemblance to real people, it’s entirely coincidental and a product of your imagination.
Suspicions start to grow…
Chapter 2 is focused on the Staff Guild, a bunch of big guys who like to eat.
Here first appears a recurring motif about the importance of names. Is your name really who you are? For those of you less interested in heady literature (ie, if you’re not a high school English teacher), just read the chapter. It’s funny.
