FF7-AC-Cloud in church

Retcon self-rant

Here I've been quietly grumping about Square-Enix retconning the heck out of FFVII with all the new material (Before Crisis, Dirge of Cerebus, and very possibly Crisis Core, anyone?), and now I've come to the sad, inescapable conclusion that I'm going to have to do the same to COI to make things work out better plotwise. -_-

Yes, after all the various plot epiphanies I've experienced in the last few weeks, I've decided that I'm going rework a few significant points of COI's plot.


Whew. That being said, fortunately, the changes are going to be pretty much limited to one character -- namely, Dr. Savois. And why, you might ask?

It's because I want to hurt Zack badly and I can't really do that with the current Savois setup.

::sigh:: Who knows, given how new COI-plotbunnies keep popping up, this might not be the last retcon I find myself doing.

But don't worry. I was already planning a major rewrite of COI (i.e., COI Redux). I'll incorporate the retcon stuff into the Redux version and leave the original COI chapters alone. However, be warned -- Chapter 8 and on will be based on the revised COI Redux version, so there WILL be some plot inconsistencies with Chapters 1-7.
