Crap, only one more colored page sitting after this one. Yeah, know what I'm doing for the next few days then, need to pick up the pace on that. At least for the time being WaR and BP aren't pressing.

What all to say on this one then... Probably not too much if only because it's very dialogue heavy thus not much immediately leaps out at me and it's being put up literally at the last minute due to me losing track of time and me forgetting to mention to Adam he should set it up before he got off for a bit.

Do like how it came out, though. Mostly for the stuff with the kids - one thing I'll definitely agree with Adam on, the Marvelous stuff is pretty boring to work on. Past the costume a lot of the colors on that side of the plot are kind of the same sorts of shades and are all very muted and repetitive. Kind of unavoidable I'm afraid.

Yeah, on the Marvelous Man thing, THIS is kinda where the chapter goes downhill. When I was writing this chapter I figured we'd alternate between Marvelous Man's press conference, the medical examinations, and the kids reacting to the press conference in Nicky and Grant's room. But was getting afraid that last sequence wouldn't stretch long enough and in the interests of keeping the chapter short I focused entirely on Marvelous Man's conference and the examinations. It wound up getting old FAST and quickly made the chapter fairly bloated.

If instead I'd focused on splitting between the conference and the kids' watching it on TV (which ones were present switching as they were called off for their examinations) I get the feeling the chapter would both be shorter and flow a lot better. I love getting the kids to bounce off each other, so having them all be alone one-on-one with Stickset rather than in the same room really gets boring, and while I do have plans for Marvelous Man the stuff with him didn't grab the attention too much here.

So yeah, that's my problem with the chapter. If it helps, really crazy about the next one thus far. Until then, hope we can get out some interesting stuff with what's coming. I tried to spice the upcoming pages up as they went along.
