Well, it’s not been a good couple of days on the sanity route, mostly because July 4th screws up my brain.
Kinaktak has a close friend named Tarralikitaaq (Tarra for short), which means “butterfly” and is coincidentally the name of a very tough-to-kill and resourceful Inuit in legend. There is not going to be a frickin’ love triangle, let me tell you up front. I’m also not going to isolate the female protagonist into a mysterious male-only world.
