It actually took me up until today to decide whether or not to run with the whole Tiny fits inside the lock thing – on one hand, she actually does and the fact is amusing. On the other hand.. it also draws direct attention to one of the quirks of the World of Warcraft art style and risks bending credibility by presenting the world as a very absurd and.. well.. unreal place. A friend of mine independently suggested it as an idea however, so in the end I decided it’d be harmless enough.
Initially, I’d planned to put this dialogue a few weeks later, but I ultimately decided to have it happen now for mainly two reasons. First of all so it’d be more obvious what exactly Te’len refers to and what the problem is, secondly because the sooner she’s able to start processing it, the more time she has to come to terms with it before she might have to steel herself and act.
