This... is a sequel to my long Yami no Matsuei fic, Mercy of the Fallen. Except that this is not actually a good story. My beta-readers gave me useful suggestions as to how it could be made a good story, and I will totally use them at some point, but I just don't have the energy right now, because it involves a great deal of plot, which this just doesn't have. But I'm posting it anyway, because I kinda like it, and I think it's kind of a fun character sketch-- what do these characters look like eight years later?

Better. )

Here for your perusal are cut scenes-- one of them a somewhat edited discussion I had with the excellent [livejournal.com profile] walkerminion about life after the fic, the other the original epilogue, which turned out not to fit terribly well in the actual structure of the plot, but to be too much fun to delete. Enjoy! And thanks again to everyone who's been reading.

Right. So, after working on it for a damn year, I am finally, finally, finally posting "Mercy of the Fallen," the third (and last) story in my series of Yami no Matsuei fics. First part of sixteen is here. I'll be posting one part a day for the next two weeks or so (don't want to spam the community by trying to put the whole damn 63,000-word thing up at once (besides which, I am (sometimes) an evil bitch, and want to milk people's suspense for all it's worth)).

Wow. Done. (well, except for some very small last-minute revisions suggested by [livejournal.com profile] rushthatspeaks, which I'll do as I go.) Done is good. My beta-readers are so cool. And I'm really looking forward to seeing how people react to it, because this story has been in my head for so long that it's kind of an odd thought to have it out in other people's. But I kind of like this thought.

This'll probably be the last fanfic I write for a while-- I have these ideas for original stories which will probably keep me busy for quite a while, and I'm eager to get cracking on them. But... this was fun to write.

Dude. Done!

Reading: Marge Piercy, The Longings of Women; J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (no, no, it's for class, see. Later this week, I'll report how Harry Potter scores on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory for Adolescents (my guess being that anyone who believes they can do magic and fly on a broomstick will come out pretty damn psychotic, but the other results should be interesting)).
