Yay, Micia! Uh oh, what has ailed the poor kitty?

Well...

As in the original "Puss in Boots," she ate an ogre. Some cats will eat the most vile things, and then get sick.

Re: Well...

Nomnomnom!

Though story-telling-wise, I would have cut to the Marchesa's point of view.

Re: Well...

From a technical perspective, you may be right, in that most stories are best told from the view of the character most affected by them.

This is something that differs from one series to another. Frex, Monster House has several viewpoint characters. Sort Of Heroes has a few poems where the heroes aren't even onstage. But Fiorenza the Wisewoman tends to keep the focus pretty tightly on Fiorenza, and it's rare to step aside from that even within a poem where she shows up part of the time. Each series seems to evolve its own parameters.
