I’ve said before that the model for the relationship between Max and Selva was a beauty/beast tale. However aside from the monster that lurked within him, Wolfram’s main issues were psychological – largely due to years of torment by the Sea Witch.
At times I really want to write out their story as a separate novella but if you understand how the lovers Cupid and Psyche interacted, I think there’s very little that can be rewritten in lengthier format that would be SAFE FOR POSTING. (After all, Cupid mostly visited Psyche in the dark. ha!) I’m still mulling how to avoid dealing with a very amorous Wolf :[. Maybe the best thing is to write it in a first person version. Hm.
I wonder what they’re talking about below though. INSERT YOUR CAPTIONS IF YOU WISH.
