The good news is that since I've got it mostly written, I've already figured out what the sequence of events is. So now I just have to transfer the focus more to my main character's POV of events, which means that all but a few of the characters get a lot less screen time. This isn't a huge loss, for the most part, but one of the victims wound up really surprising me, and I'd hate to lose her part. So that'll take some rethinking.
Ah, well, it's all in fun, anyway!
