beginnings, ends, and middle

I have the beginning up to the point at which the team forms and knows what villainess they face (and are aware there's two more in existence, though they do not realize how they will actually interfere with the problem).

And I am vaguely aware of the ending and some significant details in it.  Like how to collapse the three villainesses into a single climatic problem -- which is not too difficult with enough pride to make them foolish.

And I am still more vague about the middle.  They need to do some research to figure out how to save the day and one of their members while they are at it.

So, it's time to figure out how they bash the bad guys.  Then I can figure out how they figured it out.

Hmm.  Maybe a ghost should tell them.
