I have finished Chapter 5 and 6 of Markus' ascent ! I must confess I'm glad. I've been at it for the past 6 months or so and producing the last chapter has required a lot of discipline. I still need to get it proofread and implement the corrections but this requires a lot less energy.
The story is about 110 pages long and I'm very proud of it. I think it really follows the spirit of the old Final Fantasy games by mixing exploration, combats and proper plot.
I'm quite satisfied about how I developped Markus and Celestina's relationship. I think my age and personal experience show in it. In some comment Twelve wishes (my number one reader) found some of their interactions cute :-) .
If you read this, you have always known me as a creator but it's actually the first time I produce a piece of work such as this one. It's a lot of work but creating a story tailored to my personal taste is very satisfying.
