a bee, a wolf, a duck. . . .

Once yesterday's love interest introduced herself, her part of the story fell together. So I could consider the important part of the story, where the hero has to carry out the impossible tasks.

The traditional way, of course, is to have either the Mad Scientist's Evil Witch's daughter help him (which I think makes him too weak in this story) or the three animals he helped, which he hasn't, and I don't know if I can slither it in.

So I'm pondering what to name her six brothers. (Six because they become swans.)


At least the silly witch told the hero that if he keeps his wits about him, it won't be a problem. May be able to work with that.
