dawn of day

I'm going to have to watch very closely the next few days -- hoping there isn't clouds.  'cause, at this time of year, I get up just at the sun is rising. . . .

And a story has significant parts then.

What's worse, is that they take up some time.  One needs to time things right.

Not quite so bad as a pregnancy.  I can, after all, shift the time at which things occur.  If they end up walking out under a blue sky, it would work as long as it's still early enough to avoid much notice.

hmmm. . .

Perhaps they could use a time stop rather than a sleep spell to prepare for the escape.  Though I would have to settle how that would affect the curse that forces a character into animal form for certain amounts of time. . . eh, probably his subjective, because otherwise the loophole is too blatant, even if time stop is a big spell. . . and I remember the Celestial Clock I had thrown in earlier. . . .

Still need to watch the sunrise and do some timing.  The spell can't go off at once.  0:)
