Yep.
I was crying a fair bit while writing this one.
Thanks.

Thanks as always for the comments. And I really am sorry about how dark this story got, it started off as an idle, disturbing idea, and then I realized it would be a good Halloween story. My muse and I decided to go full throttle, to see if I could come up with something worth writing.

Don't worry Dreamer, you weren't the only one hit badly by this. I read it this morning, and I'm going to be pretty much useless for most of the morning, at least.

This made me grin.
I think I have issues.

What a sublime, beautiful, and sad story. I really enjoyed it. Yes, some tears while listening on my commute.

I loved the character creativity with Odiyan. Not only was he ruthless and selfish but VERY good at what he does. The mythical creatures were a fun change of pace and his ability to shape shift made him that much more treacherous. A villain I loved to hate.

Fearless was a well constructed hero and I appreciated learning his powers and description as you went.

All in all, a great story and i can't wait to learn where Kit's life takes him at Whateley!

Do you have the next iteration in the works?

Thank you so much. That's one of the nicest comments I've gotten.

Odiyan was inspired by a type of Asian evil wizard of the same name. They're a shape changer who use trickery to assassinate people, spy on others, steal and cause havoc. The idea really helped knit everything together.

I have some ideas for Kit in the future, but they'll be well in the future. Right now the Gen2 timeline is still in the Fall semester of 2016. And I have a lot of other characters that need to be written. So depending on when the time rolls around to Fall term 2017, that will be when he reappears.

Right now I'm working on Sins of the Father Part 2 (another dark and fairly tragic story) and A Strange Fairytale Part 4.
Following that it will be Cat and Mouse Part 2, Alley Cat 1 and 2, and Making a Noise in the World: Outro. I'm not sure what will come after that. I'll be finishing 1 or 2 stories a month for the foreseeable future.
