A Modest Proposal

So, since we're down another writer now and things seem to have stagnated on here of late, I think we should strongly consider shortening the length of the series. We can still include everything we've discussed in our planning meetings, but there's probably less point in going through the order again and having a second entire chapter in every world. Right now we have the chapter in Yuhan's world, then the one in Ling's world, then the one in Ursa's world. After that comes Eris's world, and the characters finally get the big revelation. The final stages and their alignment with Eris could be condenses into a finale taking place after Eris's chapter, and we can all pitch in for that (or divide the responsibilities accordingly once we have a clearer idea.) This would be shorter than going through the order again, but in my opinion, story quality trumps overall length or number of chapters. It'll also be much easier to obtain a complete story this way. Thoughts?

Shortening the story is fine by me by not going another round, but the ending on itself as we already had it planned will still take us several chapter to complete in a decent manner.

Fair enough, but I think we should at the very least limit the amount of "filler" we include.

I don't really think we need to worry about that, nor do I deem it necessary to limit ourselves to a specific number of chapters. Let's just write, see what comes out, and if we can close the story in a hypothetical extra five chapters, then great, but if it turned out that we need an additional eight or something, then I don't see why we should shorten it down.
