So I read the first chapter this morning, and proceeded to not have time the whole rest of the day to actually say anything. ;-;

I really like the concept, and this just shows why, very well! I like how things are all tied into the existing backstory from the original, and how you can see the difference between Sonia and Geo just from differently they would react. ^^

Oooh, that was a nice chapter. ^^ Liked how Claud and Cancer were introduced; reminded me of the anime's take. ^^ Though, that dream - poor Sonia. =/

 

Will definitely keep reading! ^^

Yeah, I knew I wanted to do scenarios for the optional bosses, but the games really don't give me much to go on so I turned to the anime for inspiration.  Cancer was easy, though I might need to get a little more creative with Wolf and Crown.

 

Thanks for your support!

 

(And don't sweat it, there have been times I've gone years before realizing how badly I've screwed up!)

Hmm, yeah, Wolf might not be that hard, but... Crown wasn't exactly the most... developed? FMian in either version. =P (Though... it has been quite some time since I watched SSR, so I might be remembering Crown wrong. xP)

 

You're welcome! ^^

 

(Heh, fair enough. xP Probably was a surprise, though. ^^'')

I have something tentative in mind for both of them, but Crown is definitely going to take a lot more liberties.  I do like my current plan though.  The bad part of that is that I'm really looking forward to trying it out, but he's set to appear so late in the story...but, I've got a lot in between that I want to put some work into, so that should make it easier.

 

I've been putting some more thought into the story lately; I rearranged the outline to an order I think flows better, so I'm hoping it'll be smooth sailing from here on out!  My goal is to get the next chapter up before next Thursday!

Chapter 5 took a lot longer than I was expecting, but it's finally up!  I'll try to be more timely with Chapter 6--with how this chapter ends, it's probably obvious what's coming next, and I'm eager to proceed with it.

I can guess that the Satellite Admins are coming up, but I'm also not sure what's next; especially since Taurus hasn't appeared yet. ^^'

Both the Admins and Taurus will be coming up very, very soon! (Depending on how focused I can stay, of course, eheheh...) Taurus definitely got moved the most in this layout, so I might be making further changes to his scenario; it was kind of short since it was a part of the game's intro, I'll need to add a little to it now that we're doing it later.  I'll start planning it out immediately!

Thanks!  Sorry it took so long, August ended up being weird.  I'm doing my best to get the next chapter underway, but, since it's a Wolf Woods scenario, I'm encountering the difficulty of having both Wolf and Wolfe...I'm eager to write more Star Force usage, though, so I'm using that as motivation!

Thanks!  I figured I should have them meet at least once before the final confrontation--the heroine should always know who she's going to have to stop, right? (And it's not really doable for Cepheus to appear early, though I do want to look into adding something leading into his arrival.)

I'm planning to have a scene that shows more of Walters's character in the next chapter (as long as I don't forget), so I hope that will answer your question!

Oh geez, that really showed Walters' character, for sure. ._.

 

Also, Luna really is. She really is. =P

 

That was a good chapter; really interested in seeing what happens next, because that end scene with Walters really intrigues me...

Thanks!  I thought it'd be fun to end on an ominous note--we're moving into late-game now, so I should probably use a little more suspense.

 

I've started laying out the next chapter.  I want to do some work on a few other stories more immediately, but once I get started on Chapter 10 I should be able to stay motivated and get it out before too much time passes.  It might end up setting a new record for length, though, ahaha...

So that took a while, but this time I'm going to blame it on trying to meet deadlines for Distortion. :P

 

We've entered the Gemini scenario, but because of how much I wanted to put in it, I've split it in two. (Fitting, eh?) I know I say this a lot, but I'll try to get the next part up soon!  And I'll try a little harder this time since I feel like this cliffhanger ended up more devious than I was originally planning.

I wasn't expecting to say this so soon, but Chapter 11 is up!  Even after splitting the scenario, this is still one of the longer chapters...there was a lot I wanted to put in.  Among the things shown are the reveal of Green Dragon Harp Note, completing the set of Star Force forms!  This one ended up being more defense-focused to differentiate it from Pegasus's speed and Leo's strength.

 

That covers all the canon fights, but I do want to take a small detour in the next chapter to bring Crown into things!  That should be up rather soon as well, and after that, we begin the (very long) road to the finale!

That was an awesome chapter!

 

Walters keeps becoming more and more chilling, though, the more we find out about him; that last sentence in particular was, wow. .-.

 

I really liked how Green Dragon was depicted, though, that looks like a very cool form. ^^

Chapter 12 is now up!  Since it introduces Crown Thunder, it feels a lot more lighthearted than any chapter I've written in quite a while, but there are also a few more serious developments setting things up for the finale.

 

I've started on Chapter 13, and I'll do my best to finish it soon!

Things will be getting really interesting, I feel. ^^

 

The end was really cool; a look into the revived FMians that we never really see in the game. It's also nice to see Crown helping, since he's here and gone in the game and anime; and in a way, that's just like Cancer Bubble and hopefully Wolf Woods. =P

Chapter 13 is up, starting the FM-ian rematches!  They'll be spread over the next few chapters, but I'm hoping to get them all out this week, and if things keep up I might be able to wrap things up before the end of January!

I really liked how that all turned out. ^^

 

Good work on setting up for Taurus being around if you do anything with the sequels, too, better than "MRRRRRRRRRRGH I JUST RETURNED BECAUSE EATING CONTEST" and whatever they did for Star Force 3. =P

 

And I really liked the bit of backstory for Libra; it made sense, and really was a good touch, especially when they were able to talk him down. ^^ I also like how Rey/Pat and Geo are back to normal; and Rey even has a Bass-like attitude to him. ^^

The way FM-ians came back in 2 and 3 with no logical explanation bothered me a bit, so I figured I should go ahead and leave the door open now, just in case.  Someone as powerful as the FM King reconstructing them makes sense, but being recreated from random distortions...eh.

 

Chapter 14 is now up, taking care of a few more rematches.  Walters's schemes make a comeback as well, though in a form that may be unexpected...

I wonder what his plan is, though... Could he be...? No, I doubt he'd go that far...

 

And yeah, the random distortion stuff was a bit eh. xP
