I've finally reached the climactic scene(s) in Surgeburnt, where the timelines come together and we finally learn what drove Maren to betray her team to save them ... at the same time that things come to a head in the present. And it makes me think back to the first, abortive draft, and the original themesong I had selected for Maren. It refers to her doomed romance with Archer ... but is the love we can't have the one that is right for us?
The lyrics also partly inspired that thread of betrayal the reader would only now be learning about ...
