18. Calibridge Citadel

Show, Don't Tell: Instead of stating Lyra feels isolated, show it through her interactions (or lack thereof) with the living characters. Does she try to get their attention and get frustrated? Does she observe them from a distance, longing to connect?   Deepen the Dream/Vision: Expand on the traumatic event from Lyra's past life. Describe the scene in more detail, but leave questions unanswered. Who is the Teige? Why was Lyra targeted? How does this event connect to Calibridge Citadel?
