The art sale scene was a fun one to write. While not super necessary to the story, I thought it would help make Jayd’s character more likeable and also give Sky and Jayd a nice moment of fun interaction. While scams and cons are prevalent in many stories, I have to admit that I only had one scene in mind for inspiration here: the “litmus configuration” scene from Midnight Run (one of my favorite movies), in which Charles Grodin and Robert DeNiro con a store manager out of “bad” $20 bills. This wasn’t really a con on that order, but for some reason, I just had that in mind.
