Betwixt, the backstory

I have to confess, I don’t actually know what’s going on with Betwixt. I had some idea of a parent/child or master/apprentice type thing with the two main characters, with some magic and moving between worlds thrown in. And then, suddenly, my little Maskcat doll, who was meant to be a side character, suddenly made off with the whole thing.

What world has she taken them into to? Again, it’s kind of a mystery to me. They were *supposed* to end up in a traditional fantasy realm – all dark forests and castles – but it looks now like she’s shrunk them down and taken them somewhere else altogether. Which is odd, because I already have a story with tiny characters. So, why are my largest dolls (the big guy is about 20 inches tall) suddenly shrunk down to mushroom size? Beats me.

I’m thinking, now that it’s gone in this direction, that she’ll call them in from their “real” world to solve a host of different problems. This one might take place in a very tiny world with butterflies and mushrooms, but another might put them in more traditional castle-and-dragon fantasy, and others might send them back into the real world. At least, that’s the best that I can figure out her plan. I guess, though, we’ll just have to see.

I have not had such a willful character to work with since Camellia dictated the terms by which she’d be set adrift in the ocean. I suspect she and Ester would like each other.
