Again, scrunching things around to fit. In this case it’s worked out well, with no noticeable impact on layout. I also got rid of the roaches – when this chapter was a New Thing, I was still hacking out the exact abilities of The Dualist, and Thad’s sensory perception was considerably more sensitive in this scene than it really ought to be. Also, I hate bugs.
Big phobia, that one.
There was some more “overheard” dialogue between Greymalkin and the doc, but I cut it – it doesn’t directly impact the story, and after several attempts there was just no way to fit it in without completely reworking the page.
