  • $\begingroup$ But is this really a duplicate, since it asks for the 100th sequence in the series, which I'm pretty sure hasn't been asked before...? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ But, honestly speaking, the answer to this subquestion is pretty obvious, so I ommited it. $\endgroup$

Next sequence defined as: no. of characters x from previous one following an x. Ordered from 1 to 9. Example: aabbb, 2a3b, 12131a1b ... So next one: 212223 and then 114213, 31121314, 41122314, 31221324, 21322314, 21322314, ...
