- What Could Have Been:
- Ted was originally was going to do a joke involving the Carnegie Hall, but didn't have space.
- The tracking chip would've had a more prominent role in the story. Specifically, it would involve the heroes tracking Rough Diamond to her secret hideout. It also would've looked like a literal chip of rock.
- The infiltration sequence would have been longer and included all of the "classic heist tropes."
- The author wished he had more space to delve into more of Rough Diamond's "backstory and/or motive". Ultimately Babs Seed and Trixie took the priority.
