This year’s story themes have been provided serendipitously by Misifusa’s blog!
I knew I had a mystery on my hands with “Swim, Swan, Swim.” I knew the victims that set up the current circumstances for the family(ies) within the tale. But why was it so obvious that Tennyson and Kai Addison were as close as they were and would remain so no matter what? Was it worth opening that closed door of the past knowing the truth worth the possible pain, of angry antagonists or indifferent individuals and maybe fractured families?
Then I saw this post the day before the story was to officially begin, and it explained one of the main themes of the siblings’ stories – what are we doing here?
