At this point, I seem to be about halfway through the other notes file. And I know some of that isn't going into the current draft. So, the draft should be ready in a few days.
I still don't want to go into detail, but it continues to feel good to revisit the ideas I had and go "Oh yeah! I did all of this because I thought it was cool!"
(Worry not, I'm not going for "It's cool so it doesn't matter that it doesn't make sense". I'm going for "It's cool because it makes sense, despite being so outlandish". With, admittedly, a bit of "Well, this part is clearly magic, because it doesn't make physical sense". The way I see it, I should strive for realism in people's responses to a situation, and in the behavior of the world around them, I should strive for consistency.)
Anyway, I'm going to wrap things up for now.
