So I was sitting down with my trusty pen and notebook last night because my laptop is still defragmenting and trying to figure out what to do about the problem Kieran’s Uncle Brom tossed into the middle of “Witch” the other day. Brom has created a major kink in Kieran and Cory’s relationship, which at first I didn’t think I’d be able to correct. I was taught ages ago that wolves mate for life and deep down inside Cory’s shifter form is a wolf. So, when Brom did what I’ve had Kieran very hesitant to do and bred Cory, he activated the wolf mating bond and linking Cory’s love to him instead of Kieran. Major problem here if Kieran and Cory are suppose to live “Happily Ever After.”
Research time required after a quick prayer to the internet gods, (please tell me there’s a way out of this mess. I really don’t want to toss 2,000+ words) and hurray for modern science pages on the mating rituals of wolves. It turns out that wolves don’t really mate for life. The mating bond can be broken by mating with another wolf. Cool, possible solution to problem of uncle’s interference.
Now I face the dilemma of do I have Kieran break the bond with magic and then let Cory decide where his heart truly lies or do I have Kieran take Cory by force breaking the bond to Brom and refocusing it on Kieran instead? As I was writing last night the guys argued about the situation and it’s lead to the start of a physical fight between the two. Not sure how that will turn out yet. While Kieran is a trained fighter, he’s promised no magic and no weapons other than his body against Cory, who is a brawler due to growing up with five brothers.
So feel free to comment. I’d love to hear from you.
