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 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.
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)).
