So reading through the story again, awesome story by the way, it takes something special to get me to read it three times back to back, and something occurred to me. Alyssa is the closest thing this reality has to a chaos locus, so does that mean that every time Cy says, "For Khyoss!" she's actually saying, "For Mommy!"?
Have you thought about starting a Patreon for your story? If you could commit to 1 chapter a week I would be very willing to pledge $3 per month and I'm sure a few other people would be willing to as well.
I did, but I got caught up in RL things, and... yeah. Initial plan was one chapter a day, and I was able to maintain that pace for a while, but then RL happened. I`ll see what can be done once the September lets out a bit.
