soft selection group + fading trails with width attribute + vop critique

So, i tried something from scratch for the first time, albeit very simple... almost there! That being said i did got stuck up...

1. SOFT SELECTION GROUP:
i am trying to apply some animation to a bunch of lines through a pointvop. i want the animation to be limited to all the points but the ones at the ends of the lines,  i create a group of those points... it works,- but could be better if i could make the animation blend to the static points at the end.

2. FADING TRAILS:
At the end i added a bunch of trails with some lag and or jiggle. i am coloring them with the width attribute through an 'attribute create' node. Is there a way to make each trails less opaque than the previous. (if this can't do the job, any other tips?) 

3. NOOB VOP NETWORK CRITIQUE:
I am pretty sure my vop network is far from efficient, i would appreciate if anyone has some tips to make it more logical/ efficient.

I hope i was able to explain myself. (i have attached a screenshot for reference)

Here you go, what you could do is use a Ramp to control the ends of your curves and with that Attribute animate some noise in there as well. 
Take a look at the example
