I know I said I was not doing a sequel
HOWEVER for you up and coming writers that want to WRITE one because I know there are plenty of you fans that ARE one. I will be more than happy to be a creative consultant if you want to write a proper sequel to the series. You can do whatever you want, however you need to follow a few guidelines that fall in line with my head canon for Soul Chess:
1. Ships already established in canon cannot magically vanish or be written to be changed like Susanna dying so Lelouch can marry someone else or what have you.
2. The sequel will start in the year 2039 atb (Spring) so all the characters are way older (the ones that are alive). Ichigo's daughter-to-be (Orihime's pregnant now and she'll give birth by series end) Masaki (yes named after his mother) will be 17 years old and is about to start her final year of high school (she's born in early 2022). She has spiritual power but is not a fullbringer or a soul reaper. She knows her family history, but never actively did anything on her own--at least as far as Ichigo and Orihime are aware
3. The new big bad and conflict is UP TO YOU and the characters you wish to focus on are UP TO YOU. However, given the title, you are limited to the following characters to be your MAIN PROTAGONIST:
Empress Nunnally vi Britannia (age 35)
Masaki Kurosaki (age 17)
Kallen Kozuki (age 39/40) [I don't remember her birthday]
Suzaku Kururugi / Zero of Earth (age 39/40) [Don't remember his either]
Other details to be given @ Soul Chess' conclusion
ALL OTHER PRE-ESTABLISHED SOUL CHESS CHARACTERS ARE THERE TO BE SIDE CHARACTERS INCLUDING LELOUCH HIMSELF!
Zanpakuto can either be taken from ideas I already have, OR come up with on your own
YOU MUST DISCUSS ALL PLOT TWISTS AND IDEAS AND HAVE THEM OKAYED WITH ME FIRST OR YOUR SERIES I WILL CONSIDER NON-CANON TO SOUL CHESS!
And now if you'll excuse me I have more work to do on my lab report
