Memories of What Never Was chapters 16-19

And here's the rest of the chapters I wrote during NaNo, 16-19.  If you feel the great urge, you can find them at the bottom of this page.

These chapters are a sequence that was in the Beyond the Lost Horizon version of this story, but cut from the Eternal Chain version.  I really liked the setting, and wanted to use it again, and the idea of having to run from the Crusade too.  A lot of the story elements leading here and away from here are different though, but the gist of it is the same.  They go to this city for something, and are chased out of town by the Crusade.  And I used this sequence to add in a pretty large patch of character development for Brand and Kriss, and set a few things up for the climax.  There's a lot of Brand being Brand, which is to say, him saying any weird or random thing that comes to mind to get a rise out of Raven.  And also a bit of set up for the next book in the form of the letter.  Some of Brand's past and ultimate destiny is alluded to here as well.
