Editing and Revising The Trinity Universe 1

I was writing up a series outline for the Trinity Universe.  Making notes of any important events or items during each chapter.  When a character is introduced.  When Jason gave his lovers rings.  That sort of thing. As I went along, however, I grew annoyed.  There are too many chapters that are what I call, “Throwaways”.  They’re pointless and IMO, need to be deleted.  Nothing special or significant happens in them.  I’ve gotten kudos on these chapters, so I won’t be deleting them on AO3. BUT. If I put the universe on my website, it’ll be a revised version of it.  Visits stays the same.  The entirety is character building.  Trinity 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are also the same, although chapters 3 and 4 need to be rewritten (doing that now) and a lot of the nonsensical sex play removed.  It makes no sense to me.  It’s written as it is because I simply wanted a bunch of fanfic porn for my boyz. So here’s a list of what would change: The throwaway chapters get deleted. Trinity’s Latin numbering system will be replaced with standard numbers. Multi-chapter stories would be consolidated into one long chapter with section links at the top to indicate what’s in the chapter. And here’s the Outline of the universe, with note summaries.  Where it says REWRITE, it sometimes just means it needs a good edit. ***************** Start:  July 2002.  Season 5, just after Last Stand, with that timeline altered.  They didn’t help the Tok’ra move until Trinity III. Visits 1 – Jason introduces himself; has sister, Lysa (Lisa). Visits 2 – Daniel/Jason go to dinner at Chinese restaurant and Jack sees them. Visits 3 – Jack comes by to see Daniel, makes him mad. Daniel tells him he has to earn trust back. […]
