Hard to plan, because generally when he starts playing a part, everything goes wrong, though while I want to do some more chill chapters, that kinda leaves him suffering in the background...
Eh... That's the result of some unfinished planning. Are you planning on an Existence Rewrite? You could try reviving his character identity there.
Strangely, her old personality gives her a more calming and beliavable manner. As I have commented before, I do not enjoy her being so hostile towards everything now, bacause before she could at least be able to control instincts however weakly, now she doesn't. Although you have given a lot of colour for all the hostile characters in this version and colour for Logan and Maddie... I still believe that Karen needs to be given a more human look. ight now I can't distinguish if she's a bird and retains nothing of humanity except from speech and memory, or she was hostile from the very start. If you could take a look at Karen as a person, and not as a transformed human, maybe the new story will be a better experience for some that are like me.

Will you make an Eldrus map, I'm a huge map and worldbuilding nerd and i love your writing, so that's something I would enjoy very much. I kinda am bad at visualizing how that world looks like, so i think a map would further improve your stories.
