In long form, there was going to be a bridge between the final chapter and the epilogue, in which we’d see snippets of letters between Kiva and Ten’s family.  There would have been good and bad things – the deaths of Rion, Kim, and then Ten’s mom’s suicide.  But also the birth of Kiva’s daughter, news of her and Raj becoming mates, them moving to Atakames, a second pregnancy, and updates on their surviving and still in touch friends.
