I really don't think it's necessary for me to leave a post here, but I just got finished removing links to my Selos stories, The Yielded and Selos Freedom Fighters from the stories page. I also removed them from deviantART and FictionPress. Here's an excerpt from the journal entry I left at dA that explains why:
I'm doing this because of a few reasons:
1. I'm going to re-write the story from scratch. In my mind, I see it sort of as a "reboot" of the series rather than just a slightly different sequel to the short story.
2. I never liked having the very first story I've ever seriously written be part of the canon. Since it's the first world and set of characters I've ever created, I hold this story pretty close to my heart. I want to give it the touch-ups it deserves (I originally wrote the short story in my second year of high school, and it had a lot of silly mistakes).
3. I'm finally going to hunker down and try to complete a novel-length story. When I finish it, I fully intend to get it published ASAP.
3a. That said, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to post the whole thing online for free... So I won't be uploading the new version here (Nor at FictionPress. Sorry!)
...So, there you go. That's why I removed them. IN case anybody here was actually, like, wondering.
