comment Do items on a list have to follow the order/logic of the previous one?
"Dot and dash your i s and t s" doesn't sound so nice to me, though, with or without "respectively," in that or another order.

comment Chapter titles or numbers?
Lauren Ipsum said it. Numbers alone for continuity, names for discreteness. Decide according to organizing the thought flow.

comment How to describe the dissipation of tension between two people?
It's not fairly appropriate as a word choice question, nor as a single word request question.

comment What is the correct word/term that needs to be before the names of the maker of the project?
The best place to ask, though, is writersSE; or even academiaSE, if that suits better.

comment What is the correct word/term that needs to be before the names of the maker of the project?
You still refer to yourselves as author(s), considering that the modification of an existing work is in itself a project. A mere By should also work and is quite common.

Modification is the project here, it seems.

comment What is the proper way to use the pronoun “I” without too much repetition?
Someone must have down voted because this is considered off-topic on this site. I voted for migration to writers, instead. I strongly suggest that you involve actively on both ELU as well as writers. Before posting your next question, visit the FAQ (see link at the top of this page), read all the sections and earn yourself a badge!

comment Can a section have the same name as the chapter?
Agreed. If you just check randomly online or ask someone who is familiar, you will see exceptions to the preferred practice -- Chapter I titled identically to Section. Rare but not never, not incorrect. If OP has enough reason, there's no bar.

comment Can a section have the same name as the chapter?
Many times function overrides style. In a Ph.D. thesis, style is important but only secondary to accuracy and taxonomy.

comment Can a section have the same name as the chapter?
I don't think it is mandatory to qualify with a 'sub- Title'

McAlex, heard about writersSE? That could be of help.

comment What exactly is wrong with 'It was a dark and stormy night'?
"... there’s nothing really wrong with it in itself. The problem lies in the way it continues ...": goes to show that the question is not about language but literature. Should be considered off-topic on ELU.
