NOTE (CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS, BUT THEY'RE NOT THAT BIG A DEAL.)
I've gotten some reviews saying that it's more probable for Jacky to continue her adventures in China rather than venture back to North America. And let me say, I agree completely. I'm sure that in the actual Mark of the Golden Dragon, Jacky and her friends will have some adventures in the South China Seas.
And if I could write about that in my fanfiction here, believe me, I would. However, I really know nothing about Asia in that long-ago time period, and I'm trying to keep this as accurate as possible. (As accurate as it could be without research. I hate research.) And so, in the interest of accuracy, I dragged poor Jacky back to Boston Harbor. I know. I'm sad, too. But hey, I thought I might give you all a reason why she's stuck in New England again.
I know my New England history, is why.
