Although this is how I planned the chapter to end, I wonder if this is a little too rushed, trying to wrap up too many things. But I've been trying to stick to 12-page chapters.

Chapter 21 starts next week.

That reaction is priceless lol

This was a fun and memorable chapter as well. ^^

One last thing I wanted to mention is how amazing it can be to go back and read all the older chapters together. After a while the plot points of some of the previous arcs were confusing to me until I went back and re-read them all at once.

Thanks.

It can be difficult to balance a story that is worth reading a page at a time, and also has long-term narratives. I'm glad it makes sense reading it all at once.

I had a clear idea of the story when I started out, but I've made changes over time to either focus on certain elements, remove things I thought didn't work, insert things I later wanted, changes or explanations based on feedback, or just that I had better ideas later on.

This is a weird medium that doesn't allow you to go back and edit your past work easily, and it takes so long that your opinion can change about events once you reach that once far off point in the story.

Oh, I guess she's fixed now. Guess waiting it out worked!

Maybe that's a lesson to her? She doesn't usually seem like the type to wait around and let fate happen.

While I don't think that this was rushed, I could go for an entire chapter on Jessie meeting the 'new' Annie for the first time.

Maybe that was a missed opportunity. But I decided instead to go for the punchline. This current long arc is only a day or two long at most. When Jessie appears again, it might only be the second time she's seen her.

There are still two other characters who know Annie but haven't seen her new figure, one is her mother, the other won't appear for like a year and a half yet.

I also felt like I could have spent a whole chapter with Annie and Lucy in the character creation process on an MMO too.
