Rene hadn't even had them back a day. They'd barely settled into his atrophied supracoracoideus muscles and the smooth skin that hadn't born the scabs of loss for at least twenty years, before the lightning stripped them away. He'd done it without thinking, placing himself between her and the fury, and he'd do it again. What was the point of being on this journey if he wasn't going to save people that needed saving?

He perched on the stool as she treated his burns. "If you hadn't saved me, I wouldn't be here to help," she said lightly.

Rene smiled and patted her hand, slick with warming ointment. Out of the corner of his eye he could see David, skulking in the corner, angry. Shoulders hunched up around his bowed face, he spoke directly into his crossed arms and Rene almost didn't catch the words.

"If he hadn't saved you we wouldn't need your help," David spat.

Mmm, loving this. (Also ow.)

So, supracoracoideus. I was talking to my fellow students about doing public readings and noted that I didn't like to in part because I use words that I can't pronounce. And then he confessed to having to look up some of the words I used. And then you use supracoracoideus.

Thanks! One day the dickhead angels will stop just bouncing around the country in my head and actually shape themselves into a real story. Anything can happen!

In truth, I shouldn't have used supracoracoideus. I know it because I like wings and learned how they work structurally, but I don't know how to pronounce it and it doesn't actually mean anything to most people. It doesn't evoke any sort of emotion, which would definitely be the hard part for me about readings. (Or slams. Totes into being a poet, terrified of slams.) Knowing what to read at readings is probably a skill we develop. Maybe. >.>

One day is going to be a really busy day.

Getting better at not sucking, yes. But I doubt I'll learn to not trip over my words without professional help.

The busiest of days, indeed.

You might not even need professional help so much as just a few solid hours in a mirror watching yourself read things out loud. As someone who regularly muddles and mumbles over perfectly normal words, it sometimes helps to be able to visualize where you're tripping up. Plus, that's a thing an actual professional would have you do anyway. Just ask my mom!

HMM.

I think it's a combo of tricky words/word combinations and nerves. The one time I did read aloud, I ended up changing several sentences that I kept tripping over.
