Commentary for July 30, 2020:

It was the year 2001. I was a teenage Sonic fangirl, swimming like Scrooge McDuck in his money bin through the veritable smorgasbord of fan made content I had only just discovered online, and I wanted a piece of that action. I started drawing, I started making my own original characters, I started writing fanfic, eventually churning out what would become the basis for Eonís Comic and Eonís World after it -- the fanfic, ĎRise of the Empireí, which would eventually be adapted to make the first four chapters of Eonís World Vol. 1.

The original fic was a lot more complex than the final sprite comic version of it, which is something I have mentioned before, and how I characterised Sora-Ya, for instance, was very different to what she ended up being. For one, she was originally meant to be a lot younger -- closer to Knucklesís age -- and interested in marrying him herself. But when I started writing Eonís Comic, I completely dropped that idea and eventually aged Sora-Ya up quite a bit -- enough to have a teenage daughter, at least. But given the way Iíve been writing Sora-Ya for Eonís World Vol. 1 (in particular trying to make her a much more nuanced character than before and really putting an emphasis on how much she wants to win Knuckles over) I figured it made all the sense in the world for her to plan for Knuckles to marry Kari-Ya. Marriages have been used throughout history to formalise alliances between families, businesses, and nations, so why not use a marriage to unify the Imperial Order and the Guardians the way sheís so keen to do?

That said, this scene wasnít in the original draft, but I realised something was lacking before I finalised the script, and I really wanted this chapter to be as much about Sora-Ya as it is about Knuckles, which is why I added it in.
