This cut scene chapter is called “Alone in the Dark,” and it was written at the request of many of my dear first draft readers. Quite a few of my reader’s ship Lord Anshar and Halea (#TeamAnshar), and thus I wrote this little cut scene where those two actually get together? Yep. You see, Lord Anshar is crazy, and we already know from Book 2 that he likes to imagine things that never happened (poor woobie). So I decided to write a very explicit…er…wet dream? Mental episode? Trip down crazy lane? Whatever you want to call it, it’s basically Lord Anshar’s imagination running wild mixed in with a bunch of his usual angst and madness.
This bonus cut scene was created as an exclusive gift to my first draft readers as my way of saying “thank you” for all their support. If you are not one of my first draft readers but would like to read this bonus scene, please feel free to hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask how you can be granted access.
Is this cut scene canon?
Yes and No. It doesn’t add or subtract anything from the plot because it all takes place in Lord Anshar’s crazy mind and his dirty, dirty thoughts are all his own.
