comment Writing a short story with a secret code
Not exactly hidden as such, but Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar is composed of a large number of quite short chapters, and you can either read them in sequence as written in the book, or jumping to a specific chapter as indicated at the end of each chapter, assembling them into an entirely different story.

comment Writing is it the plot, subplot or backstory
Hero=protagonist, villain=antagonist is a common trope, but not even a rule, just a thought shortcut. Don't sweat it. The morality of the protagonist is arbitrary, and through some not even very elaborate gimmicks, the protagonist can even be the antagonist too!

comment How to release a heavy revision to a series without upsetting readers?
A discount for readers who bought the old series would be a nice gesture. It might be difficult to organize, though, depending on how your old books were distributed.

comment Are the following passages examples of tense change? Are they allowed in fiction writing?
...and please, put spaces around your em-dashes. Often the type doesn't allow for differentiating between a hyphen and an em-dash, but the difference is that hy-phen connects – while em-dash separates.

comment Satirical prophecy
I think I understand the question: how to word highly uncertain claims about future, e.g. "in fifty years everyone might be using flying cars".
