AU where Nona gets the birthday party she was looking forward to, and Cam is alive and herself (except when she’s Palamedes), and Pyrrha doesn’t have to lose the people she loves again, and —

John is an unreliable narrator, and we can never be quite sure how much of what he says is real. My current interpretation is that in NtN, John probably imagines that he’s telling the truth, and he’s mostly telling most of the truth about most events. He’s not lying, not lying-lying, he just gets really vague and really short on details whenever there’s a chance he might look bad or incompetent, which is almost all of the time. Nobody, not even Alecto is there to corroborate key parts of John’s story, which means that we only have his word for it, and worse, he only has his own word for it. The story he tells us is a story he has been telling himself for millenia, and thus it is bound to be full of shit.
The biggest, most obvious problem with the story is John’s motivation. John opposes the FTL project from day one and claims that there’s something wrong with it, and then it turns out he’s probably right, the FTL plan will betray humanity and only rescue a select few. But John didn’t know that on day one, didn’t know that when he started fighting! All he knew is that the cryo plan, his own plan, was shut down, and the money went to the FTL plan, which investors considered more feasible. At the beginning, John wasn’t acting on a certainty that FTL won’t work, he was acting on personal resentment that someone else got the funding, that someone else would get to save the Earth. He calls the inventor of feasible FTL travel ‘some poor dipshit geek,’ which is beyond rude, and reeks of petty professional jealousy. He consistently calls the leaders of the FTL project ‘the trillionaires’, handily reducing them to this nameless faceless cabal of evil. To simplify things, he conveniently pretends that the group he opposes is composed solely of investors, even though a huge number of his fellow scientists and other professionals must have been involved in a project that size.
Before the resurrection, John had a lot of personal incentives to think that there’s something wrong with the FTL project, that it’s corrupt or that it’s not going to work. After all, it destroyed and replaced his own project, his life’s work. And after the resurrection, John has even more incentives, all the incentives in the world, to believe that the FTL project betrayed humanity, that they were never going to build more ships, that they were never going to come back for the rest of the people. Because if the project was legit, he killed humanity for no reason.
I choose to mostly believe the broad strokes of John’s narrative until proven otherwise. After all, it's utterly plausible that a small group of rich people would be willing to sell out the rest of humanity just to save themselves. And yet, the man telling us how it happened is a proven liar whose entire sense of self (and also his ten-thousand-year space empire) hinges on him having been right in a situation where he had clearly been wrong.

Something I really liked sbout NtN was like, the casual Gender of it all. Pyrrha is a woman that Nona loves, a woman with strong muscular arms and a deep voice who shaves her face every day. Never once was it implied that there was anything... incongruous about it. (Of course, Nona never knew G1deon but she still could've wondered why she doesn't look like the many other women she knows)
The children call the Angel (who seems rather androgynous) "sir" not because they're confused by her presentation, but because its easier to call each teacher by different titles instead.
BOTH Kiriona and Ianthe use the title "Prince." Naturally it makes sense for the butch Kiriona, but Ianthe is very feminine and previously referred to as Princess. (Nona doesn't know this either, but its still A Choice on Muir's part)
Its subtle but noticeable. It shows this part of the world building without ever explicitly saying anything.

still laughing at the part in nona the ninth where they were traveling through the river and nona was at the wheel and it was going downhill she was ready to let go and let everyone die and then paul, eyes wide, reminded her "nona.. noodles in the back" and nona whipped her head up going "OH my god i forgot about noodle" and got them to their destination posthaste

Losing my mind over "Go loud." In GTN it was in the context of a fight with spectators. Palamedes was telling Camilla to give it her all, to not hold back, to show everyone what she's capable of.
In NTN, it's not a fight, but it's the single most risky and powerful thing they've ever attempted and they are being witnessed by everyone -- friends, family, Blood of Eden.
Paul's fusion could have happened quietly, off screen, but it didn't. They specifically chose for there to be witnesses. They chose to do this in front of people they loved, people they feared.
Paul's fusion was just as much an effort on Camilla's part as it was Palamedes'. She asked him how to do it, and he told her -- be yourself, be amazing, be powerful and impossible to ignore. Be everything I love about you and everything you love about yourself. Let them see you. Go loud.
