I am so overjoyed to see you writing COI again, and actually VERY exciteda bout the redux incorporating all the changes you mentioned in your last post~ I read the first two-ish sections of chapter 1 redux (but had to stop b/c I'm at work... *sigh*) and was quite happy with all the original charming touches left in there ("beached fish"--I swear, I still remember that phrase from my first reading of this story...ohh, some 10-12 years ago... LoL~), but that you HAD streamlined/cleaned up a few things that had kind of padded the story before (I did notice that the Shinra submarine *did not* dart quickly out of the path of the Emerald WEAPON this time--poor Shinra sub guys). Though honestly, when you sit down to enjoy a novel or an epic fanfic of COI's quality, you don't mind the extra bits of exposition, etc, it takes to get to the Cloud the meat of the story. Lol, but in any case, I'm sure it feels better for you to go for tighter/cleaner so you can move through the rewrite faster. It is an excellent story, and I really look forward to the changes you're planning to make. I will read this as soon as I can escape from my deadlines!! >.< What a treat to look forward to~~~ ^___^ ♥

I'm glad you're enjoying the redux so far. Yes, I've tried to streamline various scenes. Poor Vincent, Nanaki, and Barret are currently on the sidelines, but don't worry. I'll work them back in -- Vincent and Nanaki, at least. I'm always at a loss at what to do with Barret. ::sigh::

Vincent definitely a major role in COI Redux, but it's much different from the one he had in the original. I found myself pilfering much more from the Dirge of Cerberus storyline than I expected. ^_^;
