There were bits of Tattercoats everywhere.

Autumn seems to spend a lot of time scrubbing off all the unfortunate things that glom on to her one way or another. :-/ I hope this cleanup can be a start on improving that pattern somehow. I doubt she'll stop being a trouble magnet -- her magic is much more visible than her siblings', and she makes it more accessible -- but her toolbox for dealing with it might improve?

Speaking very broadly .... when you write about Summer or Spring, usually it's about their lives and their relationships and the things they're proactively doing. Winter's more of a mixed bag, with a generous share of looking after his sisters, but likely in the form of him realizing there's a problem and going to address it -- and even he seems to have a steady relationship, at least as of the last family Thanksgiving story. Autumn stories tend to be about about Autumn winding up in someone else's mess, whether she walked into their town or they walked into her booth (or van). The Autumn-and-ink piece where she proactively goes looking for something she needs, and finds it, and it seems to be a Good Thing is a striking exception ... and now I wonder where or how she lost that.

It's a bit depressing that she has a hard enough time remembering him to draw a decent portrait.

I hope the magic worked.
