So... Hazel has an unexpected new direction open in her employment. Once she has time to think about it, I wonder how she'll take to it? Did she know she had that aptitude? Any prior training?

Round 1: Anatol-0 Hecate-1. Does he have some way to accelerate healing? If not, his shredded chest and broken bones may have him down for a few weeks.

Having dealt with demon-spawned insurance companies myself, I have a lot of sympathy for Zigs.... Sad

Interesting charm spell. I thought Anatol might have been hearing Sheila's sister, Tammy, who, IIRC, is still missing in action.

Thank you for the last 2 chapters!

Yes, Tammy is still missing and the reason that Hecate was put on the hunt...

Cheers

As Mike commented, the glamor used to draw Anatol into Hecate's little trap was one that only he could hear. Although Hecate may currently share the same world that "her" Sheila Vixen does, that doesn't mean that she knows it's the same one.

If you'll remember Arden commenting in Act 1 about the fact that he'd discovered that all of his other alternates in existence had already died leaving him as the last "Arden." For all Hecate knows, the Sheila Vixen in this world, is just a mirror image of the one she dealt with.

Cheers

And I assume Hecate has no way of knowing that Anatol might have any connection to Shiela and Arden without him stating so (and if he really does have an Arden connection as some of us think, he appears to not know yet).

GAH why does Zig have to go through so much crap all the time? I mean, even when extra-dimensional phenomenon aren't conspiring against her and her loved ones, she still has to go through a lot of crap.

I seriously thought that Hecate was going to kill Anatol. Heck, why do I feel compassion for a demon? Maybe because she's trying so hard to help Sheila and Arden. Anatol was just doing his job, and he apparently has no knowledge of the events that led up to Hecate being thrust into this world. So it makes sense that he would attack her. Even so, I still was saying to myself, "No, you idiot! Don't do it! GAAAHHH STUPID STUPID you're going to die..."

And now Tiny wants to protect Hazel. Are his intentions good? It seems so. Hazel apparently is just crazy to get out from her mother's control, and she may end up doing some really stupid things to accomplish her goals. So Tiny may be doing her a favor. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

All part of the master plan by our mysterious bad guy pulling the strings....

Anatol was definitely behind the 8-ball on that one. He's fought all kinds of creatures that have gotten into this world, but like Hecate said, she's totally out of his class. Live and learn. (At least he did live.)

Anyway, Hecate is intended to be a sympathetic character. It's kind of like Jessica Rabbit: I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.

There will be exposition in the story that goes more into depth about her background.

Heh... Yeah... Tiny and Hazel. I've got some seriously deranged antics setup for those two. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Great chapter. I really like the character of Hecate and hope to see more dialog with her. She seems to have a really dark humor that I find hilarious. Like you say, she is suppose to be more of a sympathetic character, even when she's beating the living hell out of someone. I'm really looking forward to how she interacts with Tammy, as her relationship with Sheila was actually pretty good, even if Hecate was pissed off at her most of the time.

I'm glad to see Hazel possibly rethinking her plan to be a pornstar. I start to feel for that character and it seemed like she was setting herself up for a major fall. And probably still is. But I guess her naivety is intentional. Can't wait to see how that plays out. I'm also curious about what you have in store for the character of Tiny. He seems like a capable guy, but it's usually those types that take the biggest fall, when the SHTF.

I did notice that we didn't hear anything from Sheila in the last 2 chapters. Whats up with that? Razz I'm starting to wonder what she's doing without Anatol or Zig to keep her occupied.

Excellent chapter, keep up the great work!

And we're still waiting for more definitive clues (or outright disclosure) on who or where Arden is now. I still think Anatol is at least in some small part Arden, perhaps a vessel for part of him until he can be reassembled (yeah, that sounds a little too mechanical).

I'm inclined to agree--of all the characters I've seen so far, I think Anatol is the most likely to have at least part of Arden. Could be that another part is in the kits, though the dragon-eye incident might simply be hereditary.

There's one other thing to consider, and that is that Arden hasn't even shown up in any form... yet.

And when WHATEVER happens to return Arden (or other unrelated events), I don't think we want Zig to lose a cousin, even if Anatol is on the wrong side of the God issue for her preference (wasn't there a quote somewhere something like "I leave him alone and he leaves me alone"?).
