I figured out what the new scene needed to be, as well as where it should go: at the beginning. Brilliant. *facepalm* I also figured out that the way to bring out the protagonist's motive is to have him address the audience, narratively. Rah. Several editing passes and now I'm sick of looking at it. Want to do a couple more before I put it down, but I'm already dwelling on my folktale notes. Must. Focus. One thing at a time, dammit.
