There might be another elephant behind it. Joy.
It just occurred to me last night that a lot of the bridge (which does need to be punched up) is putting me to sleep, and that I might not want to make it sound like I’m just filling time to get to the full-monty end of things and then bam! done.
So I will probably punch up the bridge to keep it from being too sleepy, and then keep going after the koh-i-noor part (that’s still slightly freaking me out) and see what turns up. I’ve had this sort of thing happen before, where I state the main theme, go wandering off, come back to it, and then go wandering off again, and then wrap up. I think that might be what’s going on here.
