Volume 2 rewrites, complete

Posted April 22, 2018 at 3:58pm

I've finally completed this LotE rewrite project that was going on for like a year! The goal of this project was to make it so that Insyte no longer accompanies Sparktail and Thalia to Hoenn, and instead helps Shanala to investigate the Vulcanites, while Rush stays at the Silver Conclave to oversee the resistance forming. This allows Sparktail and Thalia to come into their own while collecting the Orbs, while showing Insyte's growing link to the Vulcanites before becoming king.

This project gave me the chance to expand on some important developments that were barely touched on, if at all: Rush's charisma, Insyte's sense of duty, Sparktail and Thalia trusting each other, Shanala being a survivor, and so on and so forth. All these revisions help to lead more smoothly into everyone's roles later on in the story.

I tried to preserve the original style where I could. Still, there's quite a few tiny changes, little moments that I worked in here and there. Here's some of the highlights:

Yeah, I'm really proud of that last one too. Anyway, thanks for everyone's support! By no means will this be the last LotE rewrite (because it's me here) but this will probably be the last one for a while because I've been stuck in rewrite hell for a year and whatnot. Cheers!
