Thank you for taking the time to read, and I hope you enjoyed it. (If you haven't read it, go do that before coming back here)

I feel compelled to apologize for my writing - I was experimenting more with this story, so if it sounds awkward in any spots, that's probably why. All in all, though, this was a fun experience. See if you can spot the paths/pages I enjoyed writing vs. the ones that I didn't.

Anyways, there might be a few plot points that sounded good in my head but didn't translate into the text (happens a lot, unfortunately), so I'm going to try to list these out. Luckily for me, these articles are editable so don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about what's happening/happened.

- It is strongly implied that your 'memories' were actually just a fabrication from the Red Demon, who placed his mark onto you at some unknown time. With him/his mark gone, you naturally will forget why you even set out in the first place.

- Taking inspiration from Huxley's Brave New World, I implied that there was a way to speed up the child-bearing/birthing process that enables the church to obtain so many hearts. The story never really touched on the idea, though.

For now, that's all I have. PM me, or message me on Discord if we're in contact there, I'd be happy to respond.

"Goodness, it's the worst case of Schizophrenia I've ever seen!" The doctor exclaims, looking the babbling boy. The mother gasps and covers her mouth while the child bolts up from his seat, holding an imaginary dagger out towards a doctor's diagram on the wall.
