//: Disclaimer: This is very much a WIP and I will likely be actively changing things from the past chapters to fit with future chapters as I go along, so minor details like appearances of items, etc will likely change. I will try to update these corrections so it's all coherent at the same time, however. Thank you for your patience! //
