While I'm on hiatus and getting back into writing, I've been taking a hard look at Father and Son, and there's lots of stuff I want to change. Most of it is little stuff like fixing up grammar, expanding on scenes that I thought felt a little under-cooked and ironing out continuity issues, but there's one big change I want to make.
When I started this series, I plopped it down in the Sonic the Hedgehog world of Mobius simply because I didn't want to go through the trouble of coming up with new locales, but now that the series has grown, I think it's time I give it it's own world. I actually thought ahead about this when I started expanding on the world they live in, so I kept location references to a minimum so that they could be easily interchangeable.
Here's what I have in mind.
-The world itself is a semi-fictionalized version of Earth with the series taking place in the USA.
-The main story and the home of James, Lars and pretty much every other character is a as-of-yet unnamed city in Illinois with Darius and Omar's home town being across the state.
-Grandaddy Alex's house and James' hometown is in an as-of-yet unnamed city in Louisiana
-Bouchard and Kurimel's (yes, I'm planning to expand on them.) country of origin is the Netherlands.
-All references to various locations, important or not, will be ret-coned to fit this new location.
How does that sound? I wanted to put this out there so that you don't wake up one morning to find James and Lars living in Illinois instead of Central City.
