Hm. I forget what I was going to write now. But I did have an awesome birthday! One of the things I got was a complete volume of Bone, and it's been a long time since I've read something I've enjoyed so thoroughly.
And I swear I'll be back on schedule next week.
minotaurgirl- Thanks for the imput. Iavar's story was in the story, but then I took it out because it seemed like it was dragging the story out, but we'll see. I might put his story back in there somewhere.
AlpineBob- Thanks! I did think about adding in more blood, but from what I've seen in pictures and videos, that type of arrow wound doesn't seem to be very bloody at all. I could be wrong, though (although I think I did forget to put the hole in).
If the arrow went through the lungs, which is what most archers aim for, to make it quick-there'd be a fair bit of blood. Not gouts mind you, but it'd be in clear evidence. As someone who has seen (and personally had to perform) different methods of killing animals for consumption, I'd say either an arrow or a quick snap of the neck would be the quickest, least painful ways to do it. Even a small wound, if it's deep, will bleed quite a bit.
