Really great start and I am really interested of the situation, in where Michael is the one who grows more into the Alien world and knows obviously a lot of this world when Max doesn't!

And I am waiting for more! Thanks EVE

I love, love this already.
What an interesting new way to be introduced to these characters.
I can see Tess being more human, but Michael less angry. He's got a long way to go.
I'm sure the conflicts between Max and Michael will be never ending.
My favorite part was Isabel's possessions of "white-out, hole punch and nail polish". She should win the prize for that.
At least Michael stepped in with crowd control when he realized Max was going ahead with the healing.
Thanks and can't wait for more,
Carolyn

I'm going to post the next chapter in he next couple of days.

Eve -- thanks for the vote of confidence! The next chapter deals with Michael and Tess trying to explain the truth to Max and as you can expect it doesn't go that well. I think this difference in their level of knowledge will be an interesting dynamic.

Carolyn -- thank you! I'm looking forward to fleshing Isabel out more. I think they could have done a lot more with her in the series.

I love this start of this story and hoping you continue. I miss candy stories. I feel like you will bring maria and michael into the forefront and do it justice. I can't wait to read more, especially about maria :)

@9loveletters9
Thanks for the kind review! I'm glad you liked the candy elements. Me too :) and there is lots and lots of Maria to come. I even just wrote a scene from her pov.

Funny thing -- I hadn't planned to make much of the love stories because I wanted to focus mostly on Michael and Max, the politics, the war, as well as Isabel and Tess's role in a potential revolution in Antar. As in, let's think about the implications of destiny and a royal lineage BEYOND who you are supposed to sleep with.

But then, I had Michael and Maria in the same room and the sparks are just there, period. I rewatched part of the first season, and realized how important that relationship is to all the politics. Same of course for Max and Liz, maybe more so because Max is so reluctant to follow his destiny.

Besides love is fun to write!

My plan now is to put Maria into a role similar to Liz in the first season. I don't think Max has told Liz much. We will soon find out he made up a story about being psychic. Liz will be questioned by the police. But Maria will be the one to learn about aliens. Michael will not tell her -- she will probably catch him, and then have to decide whether to trust him, and then whether to tell Liz or Alex or even her mom.

I'd be interested to know what your take on these ideas is, and anyone else's perspective of course!

Because Michael and Tess are so concerned with their destinies, I will have to explore Max & Tess and Michael & Isabel as potential relationships but I don't envision anything serious or romantic. Michael will view anything with Isabel as a purely political alliance and not intend for her to be an actual romantic partner. Maria is definitely his endgame.


Update coming asap! Maybe tomorrow :) with more Candy and maybe some Dreamer.

It's an interesting beginning. I love to read about Michael and Maria. And ouch Nacedo. Poor Maria, she must have been scared.
