100indecisions: my chains are broken (badfic evil smirk)
Yes. I am sure of this now. Because: sometime last year, [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden got her biggest brainstorm for The Song Will Remain while she was in the shower, and because less than a month ago I got bitten by a plotbunny while I was in the library bathroom (though I've not written it yet, still, and I don't remember which one it was).

And today it happened again. And it wasn't a fanfic plotbunny, for the first time in ages. I don't even remember why I was thinking about this, but I wandered into the bathroom today--with a textbook, even, that I was supposed to be reading--and in the back of my mind I was idly thinking about Cydan trying to kill Trin, and why he wanted to do it in a certain place on a certain day, on the anniversary of some awful event (this latter idea from UTT last year, oddly enough).

Well, for reasons I do not understand, the phrase "St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre" popped into my head. I think that was a real historical event, probably something I came across in my history textbook sometime this semester. I don't know what it was. But it doesn't matter: I got that phrase, and I had what can only be described as a real brainstorm, and in about ten minutes I had a whole bunch of everything--all about Cydan, and his semi-tragic past (that does not excuse him from being evil, but at least it gives him something of a reason, which is awesome, and I know now why he's an assassin), and some of his connections with Trin, and why he wants to kill Trin, and why he hates the Brownlows (who STILL NEED NAMES), and more on why Mr. Brownlow hates thieves, and why Cydan has this specific date and place to kill Trin, and...yeah. It was wonderful.

Now I just have to 1) make sure this agrees with what I've already written down about Mr. Brownlow and such, which isn't much, and 2) remember everything until tonight, because with the homework I still have to do in the next hour and fifteen minutes before work, I probably won't be scribbling this down until then.

But still.
