You're absolutely right and you're the first one to spot it. *does a happy dance and hands Charlie a plate of cookies* Nigel was on all of those pages. I decided to rework them, because they didn't quite fit anymore after my rewrite/edit of P.H.A.S.E. But most of the information given about Ryo and Nigel in those two pages is still very much valid.
I think I'm using a set-up somewhat similar to the new story you're working on. The first three pages are in the present, but after that we jump back in time and work towards the events in the first pages. There's one character you haven't been introduced to in this version yet and... sadly, it's not Shin (that may take a couple of chapters). In the meantime, I'm having loads of fun with the interactions of Nigel and [...].
Very true! The only difference is that you go back 8 hours after just a few pages, while I wait for… what, almost 10 chapters to jump back something like 7 years…? Clearly, I don't want to make it easy for potential readers.
