My story is complete and I am happy with it except for couple of items, after reading a couple of threads on here I would like to try it without the prophecy. 1) It will have to stay in my Christian Pilgrim element as I have a Noah type character that builds a Spaceship 'Ark' 2) It only appears in three areas with my main character, two I can easily removed it just by taking the sections out, which tells me its not that crucial to the story lol. The only area is during a meditation and he meets the leader of the monastery in it, he's never seen him before because of corruption in the monarchy they have been cloistered during my main character's lifetime. Would it still be overdone, if no prophecy is mentioned but the monk seems to know something is about too happen, he can feel it in his waters? And if the characters that are set up waiting for things to change but they don't know how, they just have faith the universal powers will find a way? 3) How does my seventeen year old girl convince her Father she is to marry her adoptive cousin without a prophecy to ease the way lol? This is the only one I can see struggling. Both my Prince and the girl that is about to become his Queen are still at school taking their exams. But my Queen is crucial to the plot?
