Today sat down to poke at the denouement, and how condensed it can be.
When it dawned on me that the climax was wrong. Not entirely wrong, but the villainess had to be able to see something that she had not, merely minutes before. The means she had snatched at to break an enchantment, she had to get.
Fortunately, the heroine was running away at the time, so I do not have to rewrite that scene. I will give her misgivings and doubts, and then, she learns at the high point that the villainess really can see, and so she and hers are in graver danger than before.
And then I have to smooth it out.
