Now, the burning question is how to make this clear to the readers -- on top of the factions in the plot. Which means to the main character; she'd pick up on any clue enough to inclue the reader.
Ah, what fun. Throwing her into a morass of politics (and fae politics at that) when she's no more interested than she has to be -- admittedly, far more than she would like -- and where no one who knows anything is interested in telling her anything true. But the story is resisting the notion of more point of view characters.
Hmmm -- catch one of the people off guard and blurting out the truth?
