(Well, I suppose I could have waited another week to post this, but Vero just got me the final, polished page and it’s still Saturday where I’m at, so I figured, why wait? 😉 )
So! Thus begins Interlude One! It could take place between the end of Chapter One and Kyle’s birthday, but it could also be a few weeks before that. Don’t boggle your mind too much about the timing, other than to know that it takes place before Chapter Two.
Why an Interlude? Well, as I’ve mentioned, the Engaging the Enemy arc of The Young Protectors is a Prologue and five chapters long. We just finished Chapter One which means that we have four upcoming chapters with increasing stakes with thus potentially increasing drama and increasing tension—because I’m me and that’s what you do—and so I wanted to have a little bit of unadulterated fun before we dive into all that. And I wanted to spend a little more time with the whole Young Protectors team whom we haven’t seen in a little bit.
Now I imagine there might be some of you wondering if this Interlude is just me teasing you, delaying Kyle’s birthday adventure with all the pleasure it promises in Chapter Two. And yeah, sure, OK, maybe. 😉 But mostly I wanted to have an opportunity to have a pure AlexHumor segment and now is the right time for that. Don’t worry, if you’re eager to see what happens next between Kyle and The Annihilator, this Interlude is significantly shorter than the Prologue, so I won’t subject you to my AlexHumor for too long. And I promise you, there are pleasures here too. Ones I very much hope you enjoy. 😉
So enough preamble. Thanks to the amazingly hard (and awesome) work of Adam and Vero, Interlude One has begun a week ahead of schedule. Back to our usual business!
