I've been doing some editing of previous chapters, but I could edit all day...
I keep re-visiting the ending I've written (as in what happens through the re-working of the OC and MOB). It would be nice to know what sort of lose ends from these campaigns people would like to see 're-knotted.'
For example, I've already made a revived Cormick the main squeeze for Amara and gave him a meatier role in the OC. I did that in part because such a big deal of Cormick is made in the Tutorial, but then he just disappears---poof. Realistically, if he was ever a threat to Lorne, he has to have something...like a smile, a wit, and a way with people (and a greatsword). And I love the fact that in the OC he seems to be worshipped in West Harbor, while the PC isn't . That's just great writing!
The original romantic interests are there, but well, a bit more complex. With Cormick, that was like creating a new character, so I enjoyed doing what I liked with him. With Bishop and Casavir, well, almost every lady who's played the game has rather strong feeling for/against both of those fellows; there's a fanfic for every romantic inclination. I'm 'Bishop's Romance' made the relationship with Bishop appealing, but Casavir, the one I imagined, got his own points of interest...I like writing both of them. I hope my depiction of them is unique. And...I hope people who like/hate both with still find surprises.
For other companions, I haven't wanted to re-invent the wheel too much. The Khelgar I depict is not very different from the OC because I already fell in love with him the first time I played the game. I don't do anything really with Elanee, Qara, and Grobnar because frankly, I didn't interact with them in the game, and so I haven't had the energy to re-interpret them in the story. Yet I have enjoyed re-visiting Esmerelle, Daeghan, Duncan, Shandra, Nevalle, Neeshka, Sand, Torio, Ammon, and some others (you'll see them later on).
