The real fly didn’t make it into the final draft of book 2, though it had a nice scene with the Illustrious Circle.
Also, there should have been a real tiger in the Otaon chapter, but it didn’t make it into the final draft. I regret that a little.

bugs, seagulls, a Golden Retriever, a flushed ostrich, horses, ducks, water striders, a woodpecker, probably an owl, birds after rain, more horses

A lame duck and a playful kitten might not make it into the final draft.

Nah, it’s too early to reveal more.

And of course the lists for books 3-7 are incomplete and preliminary.
