Kevin,<P>I know exactly what you're saying. Trust me, it's tough knowing that when the story unfolds, some people aren't going to like the revelations no matter what I do. I've got to keep in mind that I'm telling this story and just move ahead with my ideas.<P>The story is Colby's story and Iris is the catalyst of changes in his life. Some drastic, others less so. Whatever secrets of Iris' origin or what-not there are, they're not the real focus of the story.<P>I think the truth about Iris is neat and somewhat unique. I can't claim that it's never been done (I don't think it has, but who knows). I hope it's unexpected but appreciated when it all comes together. If not, oh well, it's still an achievement for me and the story I set out to tell.<P>I currently know how the story begins (obviously) and the ending along with certain events along the way. How long the middle takes and when the revelations start coming out is something that I want to pace out as it goes. If more good ideas come out, I have no problem lengthening it. If I feel I've told what I need to tell, I'll slowly make moves to wrap it up.<P>If people can hang on for the ride and tell others about it, that's the best compliment of all.
