The only thing this series has in common with the "real" Savage Starlight is the title of the works :) Follows Joel and Ellie from the "okay" at the end of the game to the start of their romance... and beyond. How far beyond has yet to be determined! Currently working on Part 3: "Singularity." Tentative goal to start posting it is January 2021.
So, yeah... this series is Joel/Ellie AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LAST OF US PART 2, which I guess means it's now AU. I doubt I'll even play that game because I'm too afraid of it destroying my love for these characters (and the only trailer I've seen is the very first teaser one from 2016). I at least won't be playing it until after I'm done writing the third installment, because I don't want to be influenced by it, and I know I would struggle with trying to incorporate elements of the new canon into this world which is no longer "canon-friendly."
Also -- yes I know in canon Ellie is a lesbian. Please don't bother to leave comments, especially nasty ones, telling me this. In my stories, she is bi. "Don't like, don't read" applies here. Thank you!
