Honestly, I can’t really say if it would work.
But regarding the progression of the romance in the first book versus the later introduction of new ROs in the next one, I really don’t think any single one will be left behind. Mainly because this was a story that originally did not have romance. They were added later on. I’m basically squeezing romance routes in an already condensed storyline. While I don’t regret making the change, it is still a difficult change to make work.
So the easiest solution for me was to just let the romance take a back seat. Some may see this as lazy, but I really don’t want to deviate too much from what I want this series to be.
There will be progression for the relationship of the MC and Josaphat or Linaria, but not that much that the future ROs, when compared, will feel underdeveloped. At least, that’s what my vision is.
So that I won’t worry too much about all this, the reassurance I always tell myself is that: ‘in real life, we don’t meet all the people we have the possibility of being attracted to, physically or emotionally, in such a short timespan’.
Yes, I’m hyping myself up with reality even though this is a fantasy story
But rest easy that I’m doing my bestest to give the ROs justice.
However long or large you want it to be. I provided details for the customization, but it’s up to the readers to bring it to life using the power of…
