50k on Day 6 before midnight!



I got Chapter 11 done at 11:30, though I added a fem more words of more dialogue at the end once I'd posted on NaNoWriMo in the "Shoutout" forum on the 50k thread. It was 51,693 when I thought I'd finished, just expanded by a few more words as I did the synopsis.

The cats have learned lore from the African lion, who has adopted them as brothers. He turned out to be rather deep and clever, aware of a lot of things including the presence of the Blight and the human it possesses. He chose not to accept its temptation to break him out of the zoo because he knew he'd die if he went around killing humans. He had already avenged his brother's killer, a poacher, by leading him into the camp of some game wardens -- which was how he got captured and wound up sold to a zoo anyway, he got a leg wound and they fixed him up. I think he's a little more than an ordinary lion. I think he's a rather large magecat of another species and has some of the same type of supernatural connection the small ones do -- and they will realize that as they think about it. Or if they run into other, dumber lions.

Onward.

They have been warned -- don't kill the prey-enemy with your mouth, then it gets inside you. Kill with your claws as if it was a cobra. Magic isn't tainted because Magic did it right and it didn't try to invade him -- he startled it when he attacked it and did cleanse himself of the monster's blood in his pool-swim. It's not a virus or bacterium, it's an evil spirit -- not the same thing at all.

Thank you! Purrr! I need to head on into chapter 12 and am now in some unknown ground, not sure what'll happen next. Also might let some time pass, they have been going very intense hour to hour up to this point and it's only been a couple of days total. I know the hurricane doesn't come for weeks so whatever happens on the way to it, some time needs to pass.
