Let me take a guess then, this is what REALLY happened? I'm figuring that we saw a few altered pasts, or perhaps pasts resembling how they HOPED things would have developed. Which would make this one, this final shot, the way it really happened. ...that about right?
Interesting. I understand what you're doing, just a little hard to keep track with the slow updates. I never even try to second guess what an author is doing, or plans to do. I just enjoy the story as it develops. Very intense story so far. I know that it will get better and better. Keep on.
