Anonymous said: Why would you need to change Sette's pronunciation anyways?
A little while ago I said I wished I’d always written “Dwayne” when Sette says Duane’s name, to differentiate it from the posh pronunciation he prefers. Not a big deal though.

Nah. The different editions should be the same :) How Sette pronounces his name will have to remain Just One Of Those Things only people who read the tumblr or the Formspring are in on.
And no to the last question ‘cause Sette doesn’t mispronounce his name. She pronounces it like we would pronounce it. It’s the English/Continental pronunciation. It’s only in Alderode that it’s said differently. Duane doesn’t mind how she says it or he’d correct her, or at least try to before she told him off and threw a tin of sardines at his hood.

Nope. It’s already at the printer’s~~ All I changed was that one typo I found in the bonus story, and the date on the copyright page :)

I have a somewhat gross question about the pre-chapter illustration where the gulls are trying to fly away with Duane's hand, though. [Sorry, I'm just really curious about how Duane keeps himself together.] Are those hooks in his wrist? Are there latches on the end of his ulna and radius?
Glad you liked the PDF :) I’m doing the bonus comic now, it’s coming together well, I think~~
Indeed, Duane hooks himself together like a science classroom skeleton. His nature seems to keep him mobile as long as what he needs is in place (and human). If his hands stay on the ends of his arms they’ll function to the extent of their natural mobility. His legs require more robust hardware so they can support his weight but his left foot is all wired at the moment, and as the tendons in Turas’ foot rot through he’ll have to wire those as well. Duane is seldom bored.
