So...I have been thinking a bit and I have come to a conclusion over something that I think will be of some benefit. After my post on my thoughts and feelings, I did some rethinking, re-evaluating and re-reading of PMDTE. I've re-read it four times now to ensure I remember my own works. And, well...something bothered me while I was reading.
On my Fourth reading, I decided to act as if I am new to the series, and I know nothing of PMDTE. And as I read it, I started to say '...who is Devin? How did Team emerald get formed? How did they get so high in the rankings? Why can Devin use Aura? What is going on?'
So the thing is, I realize that...basically, in 2013, young dumb stupid dumb me decided to throw it all in the middle of it instead of developing. And I think that is what hurts PMDTE more than helps. Because I am going over 2013 self, and seeing a puzzle that was just thrown on a table. A puzzle in which i see that 2013 self said 'Eh, I'll just put stuff on top of stuff and see if it works' and as each year went, I started to see 2013 me was...stupid. Current me is trying to go back and figure out where the pieces were suppose to go, and make it look like a cohesive whole. But, there in lies one big problem...half the puzzle is gone, namely who these characters are, where they are from, how we got here, ETC ETC. SO! In order to remedy this, PMDTE is getting a sub series.
And I am titling it Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Team Emerald, the formation!
What will the series contain?
A beginning. A blueprint and formation of who these characters are, what this world is, and have it all tie back to the beginning of PMDTE where Devin and Blaze find Lightphire.
Now I know what is to be asked next. Wont this be stressful and overweight with how many projects you have?
I don't see this as just adding another project. If anything, it is still PMDTE. Im just revisiting a project and adding stuff to it to fix it. So really, it isn't that big of a deal.
But what does this mean for current PMDTE? Nothing. It stays. Im still making it. Im just making a series for context. Im just making two things for PMDTE here. One that is the present, and one that is context.
I hope you all are looking forward to it!! I know I am for sure! And hopefully with this, I can finally finish the puzzle that is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Team Emerald!!
