story time

Was working on a story.  Realizing that something would probably last from one summer to the next.

And then realizing that it would probably be the shortest part of the story.

Between the pain and the drugs the point of view character is going to pretty much out of it.  And it's the thing as a whole that moves the story along.  Not the individual events along the way. So a few scenes and then he's escaping to really get the plot going.

phew.  'cause those scenes are going to be ugly.  The icy cold corporate-minded mad scientist isn't even so human as the cackling lunatic in his castle powering all his machinery with lightning rods.  Certainly Igor would be more pleasant than their assistants.
