    nitty gritty about the first scene in ScarletI have wanted to talk about retellings for some timeWhat makes a good retelling?Do we want to stay in that world longer and so as a reader we look for new characters in the same world?Or do we love the characters so much we wish to go on adventures with them?Did we love the premise so much that we want another plot like the first but with all new people or in a new place?Or do we want a clever t
