Oh, the idea is rock solid. I mean, super solid. The Devil abandoning Hell, either to go renegade or to actually repent? There's so much stuff to be mined from that. A lot of people have told a lot of amazing stories based on that idea.

I just sort of have issues with "returns to Heaven in power and glory to stand again as one of the most beloved and important members of the Heavenly Host. All that bad shit he did? Water under the bridge." It rubs me the wrong way, especially also in the context of "the people who think this is a bullshit way of proceeding are the real bad guys here."

I've been wanting to come back for months, but I felt like I needed to do something special. I know, of course, that you lot would have been perfectly happy if I'd simply wandered back in and been like "'sup guys, want to talk about X-Com?"

But I felt obligated. For me, and the sort of person who tries to talk about art that I want to be.

(That's not weird, right? Or pretentious?)

But then you brought back NXE, which I'd made my bones throwing rocks at back in the day, and I checked the calendar and saw there was an important AN milestone coming up, and it was like "Yes. Yes, this will do nicely."

In hindsight it may have been a mistake. This thing is SO LONG. And I had to read it three times; once to refresh my memory, once to make sure I didn't miss anything, and then again to decide what parts to comment on.

I mean. I'm sure writing it took much longer. But this is novel-length, not something you can just skim on your lunch break.
