The transformation scenes are still shorter than planned, because now there is a larger plot. At this time, I felt that glamorizing the transformation process ran the risk of cheapening the overall story.

Transforming Cass a second time was motivated by my dissatisfaction with her character design. I wanted to make some noticeable alterations, and because the series focuses on physical transformation, the look of the characters is at the forefront of a reader’s mind. So I came up with a story reason why Cass would look so different.

This is still one of my favorite pages of the entire series, even looking back on it six and a half years later.
