Strange that progress is as slow as it is; the current runtime is nowhere near as bad as some of the longer parts. The first half is finished (albeit not fully edited), clocking in a little over two hours. This one I'll probably split into 2-3 videos to reduce viewer fatigue as that was apparently an issue last time. Anyway the length is probably partially distractions and partially just being pretty hard to get right. Questions are a lot easier than answers!

Contextless preview images from the first half:

It's funny how blond Beatrice's sprite actually looks strange now after seeing so much of Sarah.

Redaction of the Golden Witch - Coffee Break

Tea parties? What are we, six years old? Less than that? The only brew that properly suits a sobering answer (or complements a good cigarette) is a strong cup of coffee. Join the witches for a warm drink and all the answers you can handle in one sitting.

The first part is here.
The second part is here.

The TRUE final Tea Party is coming... in a little while, anyway.

If Diego Armando doesn't have a cameo in the Coffee Break, I'm declaring Redaction to be a failure.

Well no, but there is a lawyer.

I'm confused, how can Battler's alternative theory be valid? The letter caused at least one person to die, right? How would that apply to his theory? I guess you could say that writing the letter caused him to be shot by Eva, but Shannon outed the letter as being fake pretty early on. It didn't seem to have much consequence in the story's direction.

So unless I'm horribly confused, Sarah created a logic error by calling Battler's interpretation valid.

Under Battler's theory, you could argue that Shannon or Kanon has died!

Alternatively, the same set of events that lead to the creation the letter also lead to Kinzo dying, therefore one can say that the "letter" killed Kinzo if the "letter"'s definition also includes the events necessary for it to be created in the first place. Admittedly this one is a stretch...

Think of a longer causal chain.

Redaction of the Golden Witch - ???? (True Tea Party)

The finale so explosive, dai might get my account suspended! I strongly recommend watching in 1080p.

Many truths are now known. And many mysteries have been resolved. Only one mystery remains, but that truth is not so easily revealed. It is guarded carefully in a wounded heart. Join the Witches in their final thoughts, and seek alongside them the path to the future.

The true tea party's already out? You're fast, Renall! I haven't had time to watch the coffee break yet. Congratulations on all your great work so far.

*goes to download the tea party - might as well have it ready to watch even if it takes a while*

I think there's really only two or three possible answers for 1996. The information is there, but I'm deliberately leaving it open to interpretation because of the themes of the story. You can get yourself to the point of "Well, it was probably either this or this," but which one you pull the trigger on is going to be your call. It's not a catbox by any means, it's just you have to take a certain perspective to be comfortable with one answer or the other.

I'd also argue it's not the point, but I certainly don't intend to create a zero-answers situation either. But to be true to the source material I can't say everything (and I think saying everything I could about 1986 is at least fair, right?).

I probably just wasn't paying enough attention to the thematic elements of the 1996 story, but the ending to that particular part of Redaction seemed anti-climatic to me. With the reveal of

I hate to criticize a story I otherwise liked a lot, especially a fan-work at that, but I'm not sure the ambiguity of this particular story element is exactly compelling...at least to me. Probably just more of an issue of my personal taste though.

Maybe I just need to read through it all again.

Thunderbook, You're missing the main theme of Sarah's entire character.

When you put it that way, things do make a lot more sense to me about the story.

I'm not sure why it didn't click with me when I was reading though.
