Hello, loyal fans. Let's get right to it.
I've been thinking for a while about putting Aura Adventure on hold. Do not be afraid, that is not what is happening! But, in a sense, it's more than that...
First of all, you might have noticed that I haven't updates AA for almost two months, which memory tells me is the longest period I've ever gone for AA (man, that makes me sound like an alcoholic or something). Usually, delays in updates are down to my own laziness, however, this time it's different. As some of you may have noticed, I've been updating my Dragon Ball Z (Dragon Ball X) story rather regularly., and AA has been sinking into the background.
That is because I'm beginning to think that Aura Adventure is rather mundane, without any character development. None of the characters really have their own personalities, but are very Mary Sue-ish.
Therefore, after much debate inside my head, I have decided to end Aura Adventure...but do not fear! It's not done yet. Over the past year I have developed a very deep and detailed back-story for the plot, and each character has an important role. I do not want to give up on that so easily. In fact, it's the only thing that's kept me from ending it before this. Until I had an idea today that will allow me to continue the story while at the same time revamping it so it's way more interesting, for all of you and for me.
Here's the idea. I rewrite Aura Adventure. That's right. From the beginning. The rewrite will include a few major changes, such as:
1. Combining a few of the shorter chapters. While my average amount of words per chapter these days is about 3000, the first chapter I ever wrote was a mere 700 words!
2. Giving the characters personalities...this one might seem obvious. No character is good without their own personal traits, and all of my characters (with the exception of the Team Epsilon members, who oddly have their own personalities, while none of the main characters do...) are rather bland and identical.
3. Lengthening some of the shorter chapters. Some of the shorter chapters will be combined, and others will be written longer, to add in more back-story and also effectively developing the characters.
4. The rest. The chapters will be more interesting, the characters will be more interesting, the battles will be more interesting...basically everything will be better.
Do not think that this will make the story completely different, most of it will be the same. Exactly the same plot for all of the chapters, exactly the same characters, the same OC's, the same pokemon, the same everything, except with personalities and better writing. I've learnt a lot in the past year since I began writing, and I'll try and use my new experience to the best of my abilities.
To the following authors - Crimson Dei, Confetti Storm, Hotrod198, KaizenUchiha, and Alternate Lopunnu – Incidentally, all of your OC's were set to appear sometime in the next five or so chapters. Unfortunately, as I am rewriting the story, these characters will not appear for quite a while, until I reach this point in the rewrite...Sorry about that. But don't worry. They're still all going to be heavily incorporated into the story when they do appear in the rewrite.
Well, I think that's all I need to announce...FYI, the original version will remain on my profile in case you ever want to reread it and compare them. The first chapter of the rewrite should be uploaded in about a week.
Well...I guess that's it. Thank you to all of you for reading my creation and supporting it. Farewell for now, but I'll be back, bigger and better. Stay on the lookout, Jaden and his friends will return soon.
