Dear Beans | Chapter List

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 23, 2015, 2:06 PM

~ About ~ Characters ~ List of Chapters ~ Gallery ~

The two of them came as a package deal. Wherever you saw one, you would find the other.

The 100 Themes Challenge

Suggested Reading Order

Dear Beans is a slice-of-life story focusing on four friends and their relationships as they grow up or so I claim.

Since DB is written in pieces according to the title of each individual ‘chapter,’ reading it in 100 Themes Challenge order is probably not all that helpful.

Then again, it doesn't really matter what order you read these in, it seems... I suppose that reading them in the Thematic clusters would make more sense?

These are the only ones with any real order necessity:
Other than that... have at it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm sorry I'm posting on your page, but I'm not supposed to be on and I'm using the dA app, where you still can't send/view notes (at least, that I am aware of).
Anywaaayyyy, I got your email (hopefully dA is working for you by now, since it was also not letting me on but started working hours ago), and I was brainstorming about the thing that they would swallow to become a "child" ( at least, this is what I recall since it's been over an hour since I read the email XD). I could probably just tell you tomorrow, but I might end up being gone all tomorrow, so...

- This is the part I'm most unsure of: Maybe Dr. Erland was secretly working on it in Africa, or before, for whatever reason? Or it was one of Garan's inventions? That was in that place at Scarlet's house, or something?
- They (as in those in the Rampion) get the devices installed--the one Cinder has/had that Garan invented--so they can pass as shells. This is also where my bullet points stop functioning like normal bullet points.
- They go to Luna somehow (Cress hacking skills?) and there they take the things that make them physically younger.
- Accused as shells, they go off to where are the shells are kept, and secretly observe it all. They develop a plan, and make something (or already have something) that will turn them back to normal when needed.
- They save the shells from their lives of loneliness and testing, and get the antidote of letumosis in the process
- End story, or some other stuff happens

There are obviously loop holes still, and this sounds like a longer story than I'd be able to write comfortably (plus, it might not even be what you had in mind), but I only just now had the idea so I have time to work on it.

P.S. I'm surprised I bothered to actually write this out, considering I'm writing with one hand underneath my covers in secret, and I have terrible tolerance for typing slowly. ^^;
