Sevens's backstory

As I worked through the translation today, I realized that the prologue has stuff in it that isn't true.  Apparently Calli0xE relied on less-than credible sources for Sevens' backstory because he relates a very different version to her.  We also find out some interesting tidbits about the climate and the nature of the Waves.

Finished Part One

Well, more or less.  I'll probably end up having to go back and edit something. 

Part Two has about 15,000 words so far.  The reason I got so far into part two before really finishing the first part is that I dreaded going back and editing.  Not because I don't like editing, but because I lived the story the first time.  It was intense writing it, and I thought it would be as intense to edit.  A funny thing happened.  The really bad parts weren't as bad (maybe because I knew they were coming), and other parts got me.  Yah, well.
