Remnants - Chapter Sixteen Notes

This one should've come out sooner honestly. But between getting the proper tone down, wanting to get more ahead and finish the actual Reach plot and then a damn infection that left me in pain for a little over two weeks, I couldn't get shit done. Ugh, well, the process for this has been grueling and I feel like I'll have more to say about next chapter than this one, but you guys deserve the full treatment in any case. So, here we go...

Remnants Chapter Notes Part 15

Apologies for taking so long to get this chapter out. Finishing the first Reach Chapter was a longer prospect than I would've liked. Various things go in the way. Parties, events... I recently had a damn stomach problem, but I finished it today and now can post the last bit of Tali's descent into maddness. Hopefully, it was worth the wait. Now then, time for some notes on this.

Remnants - Behind the Scenes - Chapter 13

So, we dive back into horror full blown here and not the usual zombie or slasher stuff we've sorta gotten used to. We got ourselves Psychological Thrills this time. My favorite kind! Hostel can go screw itself, because blood and guts isn't scary just on its own and I hope I proved that you can be ten times more freaky as hell with out a single drop of blood spilt. So, lets break it down...

Behinds the Scenes on Remnants Chapter 12

This chapter was meant as a cool down period. After a very heated, battle heavy, dialogue intensive, mystery epic in a ship, it felt like it was time to let the characters just shoot the crap with each other and talk a bit as well as set up other plot points further down the line to cause some interesting tension bits. Some will come up sooner than others. Lets go over them quickly.

Remnants Notes for Chapter 11

I said a lot on things concerning this chapter that were talked about last notes section. So I'll be quick about this. Mainly because I'm not in the best of moods right now, but mostly because there is little to talk about that isn't spoilers.

So there is a heavy horror aesthetic here, as many noticed, but really the big objective here was to pair off certain characters and see how they interact. As well as introduce a few more ancilliary characters I can bring in for future scenes so I actually have a better supporting cast. I've been meaning to give more batarians and jackals proper names. But it just took until now to make it a reality.

Remnants Chapter 10 Notes

Okay, a lot of things have happened since I last bothered to make an update. I'll touch on those AFTER the notes proper are addressed. Since this chapter is another two parter of sorts, this should be easy since a lot of this stuff is rather quick to go over. So, let's dive into the Dauntless and see what we find.

Remnants - Author Notes on Chapter 9

After a long absence, the resolution to the mystery. Apologies for the wait, but I hope it gave you plenty of time to consider all the clues regardless. Now, best not to get into spoilers yet. If you still haven't read the chapter, you should probably do that before continuing.

Done? Good. Let's start.

Behind the Scenes - Remnants Chapter 7

This is the reason what was originally one chapter was cut into two. The subject matter of one did not match what occurred in the other. So I decided to have the attack happen in a different chapter while building up to it in another. I think it came out looking way better this way and more consistent.
