This piece ended up being more of a pain than I had originally expected. It also ended up being much shorter than I had expected. The ending was rather unsatisfactory for me, but I had been struggling horribly to figure out the best path forward for continuing in a different direction and I could not. I think a part of it is merely this contest beginning to mess with my head. I've been rather hesitant to use certain compositional techniques here on Newgrounds and even more so with this competition. I think that I got too down into needing to make the piece have a certain more 'popular' sound for me to be able to keep it moving forward. Anyways, hope you enjoy what I was able to throw together.
