Blue fins.

I just finished writing chapter 8 of The Hunt.  Earlier in the book, Derek encounters a slave in the Faranox dimension, frees it and then returns it to its own home dimension.  In chapter 8, the whole gang goes to that being’s home dimension where they meet more of the race of aquatic humanoids that live there.  This is the chapter where their race is officially given the name blue fins, which was given to them by Derek since humans aren’t capable of reproducing the sounds they make to communicate with one another, and therefore can’t pronounce the actual name of their race, or any of their individual names for that matter.

There’s an interesting development concerning the telepathic communication between the two races as well.

I absolutely smoked out this chapter.  5,558 words in four hours.  Woohoo!  Go me! 😀
