This story, Alizaron, is actually one I’ve had floating around my head for a really long time. I really liked the main characters and always wanted to come back to it but something always got in the way– the main problem being that the characters I wanted to focus on didn’t really connect to the main plot, which was a Generic High Fantasy Adventure that was a relic of an even earlier version of the concept. The whole story was this weird and disconnected mess and I’d lost interest in the whole high fantasy quest plot because it’s so overdone.
The current version actually started out with me wanting to draw Shruikan and kid!phantom being wingy bros because wiiiiings, so I made an AU where that happened (because let’s face it, it’s pretty much the most adorable thing. I literally made the AU so I could draw cute things.) I tweaked the timing of a single event, the one that made wingyphantom happen. And then I started thinking about it and realised that changing that one thing set off a chain reaction that would change a lot of other things, and the changes made the story a lot more interesting and coherent! It was kind of magical how easily it happened… it’s finally the story it always should have been.
But yeah if anyone has specific questions or prompts about the nano, you can stick them in the comments box and I’ll do my best to answer them! C:
