There's so much I like in parts of the Second Lay of Guthrun and the Atlikvitha that I'm looking at smooshing them together. The Second Lay is told in the first person (in Guthrun's voice - and that's so perfect for me), so I'll need to tinker with the Atlikvitha passages. All the bits that take place in Burgundy can get cut, but I need to put something in about her and the ring with the wolf's hair.
I need to reaaaaaally think about the climax. As it is currently, the listener is, like Atli, kept in the dark about the "young game" being served until it is too late. That's very effective, but does it explore the themes I said I wanted to explore?
