Throwback Thursday: Stolen Petals

stolenpetals_600x900

One man has swiped bounties from Viola, the Brass Violet, for years. Longstanding rivals, they’ve only had brief encounters, and if she had a choice, she’d avoid him entirely. When he saunters into her bar with an offer to work together on a job, the proper response would be to shoot him down and send him back to Shantytown. However, curiosity’s a wicked beast, and Viola needs to know why, after so many years of stealing her marks, he’d approach her now.

The man is insufferable, annoyingly cavalier, and tends to stir up memories she’d rather forget–but she needs assistance on this job and he’s offering aid and blueprints which could cut their work in half.

Given the intense way he looks at her though, working together isn’t all he has in mind. Van Clef is known for his persistence and, with his charm, he wins women over effortlessly. Viola’s not so easy though–she’s wise to his tricks. But if he wants to play the game, she will gladly rise to the challenge. By the end of this bounty, she’ll be the one leaving him in the dust.

Musical Interludes: Writing a Bounty Hunter Bar Scene

When I’m working on stories, I need a proper soundtrack to get the juices flowing. That’s one of my key tools in fighting Blank Page Syndrome. The other happens to be copious amounts of coffee and tea. So yesterday I was plunging into a gritty bar scene for the latest Airship story. I love, love, love writing about dicey, dirty bars rife with tension and danger. This was one such. But when I was flipping through my playlist, a lot of the songs just weren’t resonating with the scene. After all, it was a reckless, tense, yet still fun scene to write.

What solution did I come across?

Tarantella from This Way to the Egress’s latest release. The jaunty melody with interspersed serious sections fit the scene to a T, and the words started flowing. If you get the chance to give them a listen, I highly recommend.
