Final Sequence

Since its pretty clear I need to do some rewrites to accomodate other issues with the timeline, I am instead going to number the days and work out the end-date to match up with the start of book 4.

  • Chapter 12
    • 1 - Scarlet comes home from last day of training with Tortuga(must be a thursday)
    • 2 - Scarlet cuts school to visit Tortuga, visits him in the morning then again after school - "On Friday after school, Scarlet had her very last meeting with Tortuga. " - Scarlet's last date with Ammon(talk about a rich full day)
    • 3 - Ammon breaks up with Scarlet in text message
  • Chapter 13
    • 4 - Sunday, Scarlet sleeps till noon - Rewrite depending on proximity to birthday
    • 5 - Scarlet boards riverboat
    • 6 - travel
    • 7 - travel
    • 8 - Travel
  • Chapter 14
    • 9 - Arrives at stopover on River, gets off and takes off by herself.
    • 10 - Paddle up river "A day’s paddle up-river and she reached the inlet"
    • 11 - Canal
    • 12 - Sees Citadel wall, wades into water just after sundown
    • 13 - Aqueduct swim - "At mid-day, Scarlet pulled herself out from the aqueduct and stretched out" - entire rest of book

Proposed Dates

If we start on the 15th day of the 8th month, Scarlet becomes Pendragon on the 27th day. This makes day 10 her birthday, so some rewrites to mention that are important.
