This freaking chapter will be the death of me. After losing access to the draft for six whole months, and even when I got it back, schoolwork derailed any hope of editing. This quarter, I've been working on it during my Film Lit labs rather than paying close attention to the film. The good news is that I'm 2/3 of the way through. The bad news is that I won't be updating until probably the middle of June. I've had to rewrite major portions of the chapter to fit all the world building and research I've been doing in the last few months. I've begun to solidify my timeline, though I still have a lot of dead air between early 21 BBY (just after the Zillo Beast Incident) and 19 BBY (the events of Revenge of the Sith). I've also adapted my narrative style to be less transparent and much more like Essek is narrating his story to the reader from-- Well, I won't spoil it.

This chapter is going to be another really long one, somewhere around 50 pages (at 25,000+ words, it's a freaking novella), so I'm debating whether I should split it up into multiple parts or whether I should just put it in its own PDF.

Also, when the whole thing is done, I'm planning on releasing it as a single work in PDF, .epub, and .mobi. When I read Past Sins, a brilliantly written, 400-page My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfic, I downloaded it in .epub format, converted it, and put it on my Kindle so that I could better read it, since I find reading a long, scrolling document on a 16:9 computer screen to be difficult. I want a page at a time, dangit!

But I digress. New chapter is coming soon, hopefully before mid-June. I've also got drafts going for the next few chapters--and a working computer to write them--so updates hopefully won't be so sporadic.
