Has anyone, perchance, ever asked Kawahara-sensei why did he stick Kirito & Asuna together in Progressive since Floor001?

EDIT: As a follow-up, it came to me that, when the Knights of Blood got formed, Asuna may have been scouted right away, tried to bring Kirito in with her but he refused. That, along with the duties of the KoB, could have strained their dynamic for a while, and during that time the events with the Black Cats, Lisbeth and Silica, among others.
I'm saying all of this because I don't honestly believe Kawahara-sensei is gonna write Progressive Floor by Floor, there was 75 of them.

Have any of you guys read the Cordial Chords sequel OS short story?Didn't you feel like there were a lot of inconsistencies with the canon storyline?

Just realized something funny while going through the SAO wiki. Kirito's birth name is Narusaka Kazuto. That means if he still had his original family name that his player name would be Naruto lol Believe it!

I wanna believe the author didn't even think about it when he thought up Kirito's birth name

His Birthname was only recently revealed in the Unital Ring prologue, where Kazuto muses about how things would have turned out, and he wondered if he would have actually used "Naruto" as his username.

Yeah, I'm sure the author notices.

I think that situation is seems right, Asuna is a front line player just like him though Progressive is different in many aspects (such as kirito being a talkative asshole despite being a antisocial) & much more focus on them than clearing the floors.

Sooooo it just seems right that Asuna is with him on the lower floors since she basically knew no one other than him and the main LN skip those part A LOT.

I forgot to mention here that one person I talked to on Discord told me to check Progressive v01 Afterword.

It pretty much (kinda) confirmed that:
1. Kawahara, not wanting to have some other girl alongside Kirito at the start, decided to make a small retcon and keep Asuna from the beginning;
2. Asuna & Kirito will really end up going separate ways and reunite majorly for boss raids, until their definite reunion almost at the end.

So, in a sense, at some (potentially close) point, the author could portray their going separate ways, maybe add an extra story or two, and then pick up the last floors, so as to wrap Progressive nicely

It depends. If it's popular (don't know how much it sells) Kawahara might just decide to keep them together longer and make the novel be and AU altogether. It already feels like it's AU to be fair, considering how closer Kirito and Asuna are in comparison to the ones in the main novel.

Well, that retcon sure changed their dynamic, despite the Anime portraying her as already liking Kirito by the time of Lisbeth's mini-arc, "Warmth of the Heart".
One could even say SAO v01, due to the author having had to skip tons of stuff to have the Aincrad Arc in one single book, didn't clearly show Kirito & Asuna's dynamic, so it seems to me that SAO:P isn't causing such a great divergence to the point of needing to be treated as an AU.

Progressive volume 5 by Yen Press on November 13.
Official description:
After successfully untangling themselves from a dangerous encounter with the Black Poncho Man and clearing the fifth floor of Aincrad, Kirito and Asuna head to the next challenge, an area filled with...puzzles?
What's more, because of the precarious balance of power between two large guilds aiming for the same item, "The Flag of Valor", there's also a murderous PK group to be wary of.
As the problems seem to pile up, Kirito and Asuna face the sixth floor of Aincrad completely unaware of the malicious trap awaiting them!!

Reki Kawahara Interview: About Kirito
Kawahara's interviews for the SAO character books that were released with the Dengeki Bunko MAGAZINE throughout 2017.

——Now then, let's mix things up a bit with the last question…… What would be the one thing you'd say to Kirito right now?

Kawahara: Hmm…… Well, something like 'You should give a clear, conclusive response regarding your female relationships', I guess (laughs).

——Last of all…… Kawahara-san, since you are going to write more about Kirito in the future, do you have any ideas for what you want to write about Kirito?

Kawahara: Regarding the new series of the novel, I believe the importance of the real world part will increase from now on. And, while there have been many girls coming up in the series so far, none of the girls aside from Asuna could fight on the same level as Asuna herself. And that's when Alice, a person brimming with eagerness to fight, came along.

——T-the waifu war is finally breaking out!?

Kawahara: (Laughs). Thus, I would like to write about Kirito's troubles of being dragged into such a battle.

Nice to see him admits Alice has a chance and Kirito is undecided about his relationships.

He never admit that Alice has a chance (it also implied in the volume 18 that he never has attention for girls in UW....yah including Alice), he just would like to write it and Kirito has already decided to be together with Asuna only, he just hasn't given a clear answer to them cause he is a kind person, but as for Kawahara said, that's means it will happen soon XD (can't wait for the scene, he reject Alice's confession...but in the Unital Ring prologue, he call Alice as A....suna, wow that is a really bad moment for Alice)

I think the point is that he never denies it.

Kawahara says that the next SAO book will be for the new arc of the main series, rather than Progressive.

https://twitter.com/sao_wikia/status/997888792806772737
Kawahara promises to finish the 7th Floor story in Progressive in just 1 volume this time.

Yeah. I bet Kawahara will go for the threesome ending.
